Texas vs Arkansas
Ark. —————- “For a long time, Texas has not seen Arkansas as a competitor. Judicially, Saturday night will fall for the goals and they will soon be joined in the Southeast Conference by the Longhorns. That will not last.
The Razorbacks defeated their previous Southwestern Conference rival 40-21 on Saturday night, holding Texas to an eye-pitch of 256 yards. 74,531 people, the ninth biggest crowd in Arkane history, were jubilant all night long, many of whom rushed the field, celebrating the first victory of their team against Texas since 1981 at Fayetteville.
The Razorbacks’ offensive line coach was Arkansa’s coach Sam Pittman’s final Texas in the Texas Bowl 2014. For the big night, he thanked his old squad. Last year, in bags, Arkansas was permitted to be 120th in the FBS.
“Isn’t that something? “Offensive Line Coach Cody Kennedy. ” Pittman said. “He has several hard-working guys. In the past, they have taken a lot of heat, and I’m sure they’ll have some in the future. But their style of playing is excellent to push for 333 against a strong Texas team.
The Razorbacks led 16-0 halfway through Texas from the opening. Six of the first seven drives were punctured by the Longhorns (1-1). Their seventh was a missed field objective.
Steve Sarkisian remarked, “This was not a performance I expected.” “We’ll find out what we’re doing about ourselves, however, because I honestly do not think we’re going to be defined by this one game. But we have work to do, certainly.”
There was no similar problem in Arkansas (2-0). On their first two possessions, the Razorbacks twice scored the whole game. Each of the other series culminated in just one score, which led to the first touchdown of Texas.
The five minutes that followed were the only silent minutes that led to Arkansas’ 16-7 in Texas throughout the night. When they gained 46 yards on the next drive, the volume returned from Razorback KJ Jefferson, linked to Tyson Morris. A 1-yard touchdown by Trelon Smith would cap that series by Arkansas.
“That’s a huge reply and I hoped he’d do exactly what he did,” Pittman said. “That series we may have been going into the tank for. We have not. We went down and got a touchdown straight down.”
Following an offensive match against Arkansas, the Longhorns’ next offensive match led to the Hudson Card strip bag, which the Razorbacks recovered at 26 Texas, and Raheim Sanders took the following play, virtually putting an end to the hopes of the visitors.
The card was withdrawn with Texas at 33-7 on the last drive of the third quarter. In the fourth quarter, Casey Thompson led two Longhorn scoring drives, both completed by rushed touchdowns.
The two Texas quarterbacks total 13 out of 23 at 118 metres. Bijan Robinson’s star back was bottled all night, as was most of the Longhorns and finished 69 meters, with a touchdown on 19 tracks.
The total offense of the Longhorns is 256 yards, the lowest since 2015. When Sarkisian was asked about his quarterback, he replied, “We’ll have to look into it.”
“Were we better blocked? It doesn’t matter. Could Hudson have been better at playing? He may have, sure. Can we have been running better routes? Yeah, said Sarkisian. “All people, even coaches, participate in this activity.”
The Time of Henry Texas vs Arkansas
Arkansas linebacker Hayden Henry began out in lieu of Bumper Pool, who, after a targeted expulsion in last week’s Rice victory, had to serve a first-half suspension. Henry led 15 career battles, 2 1/2 for-loss included. In the late 1980s, Henry’s dad played center for the Razorbacks, as the two teams battled each other head-to-head. This week, he claimed that he trained Texas to be an enemy when he was a kid.
Since 2016, the most run 333 yards in Arkansas has been the last time the Razorbacks won. It was 14 of 19 for 138 yards and running on 10 carries for 78 more.
The touchdowns for Arkansas all came from various players. Early in the second quarter, Dominique Johnson scored the first touchdown of the game from five yards out. From one yard, Trelon Smith scored his. In the third, Sanders’s fellow freshman AJ Green came to the Razorbacks for 30 yards with 8:27 left. The final points of the night were provided by him.
None of the offensive players in Arkansas overshadowed the 100-yard, but at least 44 were the four scorers and Jefferson. The starter, Smith, led 12 carries with 75 carries.
Both teams may encounter each other every year. During the summer, Texas accepted a call from the SEC. The conference will probably start in 2025.
However, Henry saw this as the beginning of the Longhorns.
He replied, “Welcome, I suppose, to the SEC.
In the already defeated South West League, Arkansas and Texas were rivals but have performed just six times since the Razorbacks abandoned the conference following the 1991 season. Texas is in the forefront of all-day 56-23, but since leaving the SWC, Arkansas has won four out of six encounters.
After defeating Rice and Texas, Arkansas may be approaching the Top 25 position to start the season. The squad will probably beat a ranked team in two weeks, when the SEC starts playing.
Texas continues its pattern from the past seasons with another early-season defeat. Every year since 2014, the Longhorns have lost at least one of their first three games.
Next Saturday, Arkansas will host Sun Belt opponent Georgia Süd.
