TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Arkansas football is on the rise.
KJ Jefferson picked up 104 of his 110 rushing yards in the second half and threw for 90 more to lead No. 22 Arkansas past Penn State 24-10 in the Outback Bowl on Saturday.
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas’ 31-28 win over Mississippi State on Saturday was not, as coach Sam Pittman said, the Super Bowl.
But for a team two years removed from back-to-back 2-10 seasons, the worst two records of Razorbacks football since World War II, becoming bowl-eligible, in the fashion they did, was high on Pittman’s wishlist.
