The Arkansas Razorbacks forced five Auburn turnovers and sacked Tiger quarterbacks eight times in a 24-7 Razorback win Saturday afternoon before 85,819 fans at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
Auburn (1-4, 0-3 SEC), which had only allowed nine sacks this season coming into today's game, gave up eight in the contest. Conversely, Arkansas (2-4, 1-2 SEC) surpassed its season total in the game; the Hogs had recorded seven sacks all season before today.
The Razorbacks outgained the Tigers, 372-321, including a 130-40 advantage in rushing yards, yet Auburn had 22 first downs to Arkansas' 19. Auburn also matched a season-high with five turnovers and was unable to take advantage of Arkansas' two giveaways.
"You saw the game. We had two weeks to prepare, and I really felt like we had two good weeks of practice," said Auburn coach Gene Chizik. "I certainly didn't expect to play like we played today, but the reality of it is, today we did all of the things you can't do and win, and we know that. Offensively, you can't turn the ball over five times, and this is the result that you get. We missed big opportunities. Eight sacks. Offensively, one of the most poor performances I have seen in a long time, just point blank. Defensively, we started out slow and for three quarters defended the field pretty well, made some big third down stops. Again, when we needed a stop, when we pulled the game to a 10-7 game, we couldn't quite come up with a stop there. But again, I thought it was all around, it was a team loss. Again, we are going to go back to work, and we are going to continue to figure out how to fix it. The bottom line is that the Auburn fans and the Auburn Family, they did not deserve this today, and I apologize to anybody who came to the game to watch it. It was a good football team talent-wise, but we certainly have plenty of opportunities to play much better. We just didn't get it done. So, it is no excuses, and that is about as simple as I can put it."
Emory Blake paced the Auburn offense with 10 catches for 118 yards and Auburn's only score. During the game, he hauled in his 100th career reception, becoming the eighth Auburn player to reach that mark, and now has 1,573 receiving yards for his career to move into a tie for 10th all-time at Auburn.
The Tigers used three quarterbacks for the first time this season. Kiehl Frazier earned the start and finished 9-of-14 for 118 yards and one interception, but was sacked four times in the game. Clint Moseley saw his first game action of the season, finishing 13-of-21 for 163 yards and a touchdown, but he also threw two picks and was sacked four times. Jonathan Wallace did not attempt a pass but rushed twice for 11 yards.
Mike Blakely led the Auburn rushing game with 38 yards on seven carries, and Tre Mason carried six times for 32 yards. McCalebb also had seven carries for 24 yards.
Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson finished 20-for-27 for 216 yards, and Dennis Johnson rushed 17 times for 76 yards and two touchdowns. Cobi Hamilton led the Razorback receivers with five catches for 72 yards.
The Razorbacks struck first, taking their second possession of the game 80 yards in 10 plays, capped by a two-yard touchdown run from Dennis Johnson to take a 7-0 lead with just over a minute left in the first quarter.
Arkansas took advantage of an Auburn turnover deep in Tiger territory midway through the second quarter and increased its lead to 10-0 on a 27-yard field goal from Zach Hocker with 6:33 to play in the half; the score would remain 10-0 at the half.
After neither team could generate much offense throughout the third quarter, Auburn mounted a 5-play, 68-yard scoring drive late in the period, cutting the deficit to 10-7 on a 21-yard touchdown pass from Moseley to Blake with 0:33 left. All five plays on the scoring drive went for positive yardage, including a 22-yard completion to Tre Mason and a 13-yard rush by Mike Blakely.
But Arkansas would answer on its next possession, moving 75 yards in five plays and pushing the advantage back to 10 points on a trick play, resulting in a 26-yard touchdown pass from Brandon Mitchell to Javontee Herndon with 13:30 left in the game. It marked the first time this season for the Hogs to score in the second half of an SEC game.
Arkansas would then put the game out of reach after Auburn's third turnover of the game gave the Razorbacks a short field. Seven plays and 40 yards later, Johnson went over left guard for his second touchdown of the day to make it 24-7 with 8:20 to play.
The Tigers would put together two more drives into Arkansas territory, but two interceptions in the end zone late in the fourth quarter would end Auburn's comeback chances.
Auburn will hit the road next week, traveling to Oxford, Miss., for an SEC showdown with Ole Miss. Kickoff is set for 11:21 a.m. on the SEC Network.
