Arkansas came back to beat Texas A&M on a Broderick Green rushing touchdown with 1:41 left in a game between teams that will be conference foes next season. The Aggies gained a large lead on the Razorbacks at the half 35 to 17 and their rushing game with 376 total yards was rolling over Arkansas. But the Hogs held A&M to only three points in the second half. Tyler Wilson and Jarius Wright put up video game like numbers in a great come from behind win for the Razorbacks with 510 passing yards three touchdowns for Wilson and 281 receiving yards for Wright. Wright also had a crucial recovery of a fumble by Cobi Hamilton that ended up for a big touchdown for the Razorbacks in the fourth quarter. There were over 1200 yards of total offense by both teams combined. The announcers seemed to side with Texas A&M most of the game. I hope they weren’t too disappointed. The crowd was chanting SEC to end the game. Final Score: Arkansas 42 Texas A&M 38.
Illinois also trailed Northwestern before making a late run to score with 13 seconds left on a short run by Nathan Scheelhaase. A.J. Jenkins had a school record 268 receiving yards for the Illini. Dan Persa made his season debut for the Wildcats and had four passing touchdowns, but was out late in the game. Final Score: Illinois 38 Northwestern 35.
