    The DeAnthony Curtis Show; #20 Arkansas defeats Mississippi State, 35-9

    [​IMG]

    Fayetteville, AK- Coach Jam's first game couldn't get much easier than this. The #20 Arkansas Razorbacks came into this game as the heavy favorites, and they would not disappoint in front of 50,000 hostile Mississippi State fans. The Razorback offense relied heavily on the running game, as Coach Jam promised that it would. Senior RB DeAnthony Curtis has a monster game, using 26 rushing attempts to gain 213 yards for an amazing 4 touchdowns. Senior QB T. Wilson didn't have to do much else other than hand the ball off against this weak Mississippi State defense, but he did use 9 out of 13 completions to gain 126 yards through the air. Wilson also had a touchdown on the ground. In order to prevent injury, Coach Jam subbed in the second team offense after going up 35-9.

    The defense also played outstanding, pitching a shutout until midway into the 3rd quarter. Arkansas' speedy defense was able to handle the gimmicky offense of Mississippi State, limiting the Bulldogs to 293 yards of total offense and only 9 points on the day. T. Wright was the defensive player of the game, recording 7 tackles (2 for loss).

    Up next the 6-1 (4-0) #20 Arkansas Razorbacks travel to South Carolina to take on the 4-2 (1-2) Gamecocks, in what should be an electric SEC matchup.

    Near Collapse in Tuscaloosa; #22 Arkansas Defeats #23 Alabama, 30-25

    [​IMG]

    Tuscaloosa, AL- In a game that Arkansas had Alabama on the ropes, they almost collapsed at the end of the game for what would have been a monumental comeback by the Crimson Tide. However, running back DeAnthony Curtis and Coach Jam would make sure that the huge 1st half lead that the Razorbacks had would not disappear, and that Arkansas would come out of the game with a much needed conference win.

    Arkansas started the game hot, scoring on their first four possessions, completely dominating the Crimson Tide defense, mostly because of the electric play of DeAnthony Curtis. On the first play of scrimmage, Curtis took the opening hand off 56 yards for a touchdown, which would set the tone for the rest of the day. He finished with 24 carries for 179 yards and 2 touchdowns, which was enough to make Alabama load the box and free the passing game for QB Tyler Wilson. Wilson made the most out of his opportunities and limited his mistakes, finishing an efficient 16-20 for 183 yards and a touchdown, while converting many crucial third downs.

    The Razorback defense is what really stood out in this contest, however, especially with the impressive way they dominated the first half, holding the Crimson Tide to 0 points until 5 seconds left in the half. However, they almost blew the game by allowing 19 points in the second half, but Wilson and Curtis bailed them out by scoring 6 points in the 4th quarter.

    Up Next the Razorbacks host SEC Foe #18 Kentucky before a bye week and afterwards the big time matchup with #16 LSU (shadowofanubis66)

    Too Easy; #19 Arkansas Defeats #16 Kentucky, 35-0

    [​IMG]

    Not much to say about this game, as Arkansas completely dominated Kentucky. The Razorback offense was firing on all cylinders, with touchdowns on all but two drives. Tyler Wilson lead the way today, with over 200 passing yards on the day, while DeAnthony Curtis almost hit the century mark on the ground. The defense baffled Kentucky's offense, as they could barely get first downs. The score could've been much worse as the Razorback defensive backs dropped about 7 sure interceptions.

    Up next the #19 Arkansas Razorbacks have a bye week before the hyped SEC Matchup with LSU.

    Finishing Strong; #21 Arkansas defeats Virginia Tech, 38-28

    [​IMG]

    Lafayette, AK- This tough out of conference game for the visiting Arkansas Razorbacks turned into an exciting shootout. The scoreboard was lit up in the first half, with both teams basically scoring at will. The teams headed into the halftime locker room with Arkansas leading 24-21.

    However, both defenses would step up. After a couple of three and outs, Arkansas' defense gave up a touchdown run to Virginia Tech's impressive Sophomore running back, which seemed to sway the momentum in VT's favor. However, the defense would tighten up and not allow the Hokies to score another point.

    Tyler Wilson finally regained his accuracy (after his coach yelling at him "stop missing wide open receivers, goddamn it!") and was able to get in position for an 11 yard touchdown by DeAnthony Curtis to close out the 3rd quarter. The fourth quarter was all about a conservative ball control offense, which squeaked out a touchdown. The highlight of the game was at the goal line with 2 minutes to go in the fourth quarter, where the Razorbacks defense stepped up and stopped the Hokies with a gutsy goal line stand.

    Up next: Bye week
