ARLINGTON, Texas — A 457-yard offensive performance was not enough Saturday afternoon as the Texas A&M Aggies defeated Arkansas, 50-43, in overtime at AT&T Stadium.
Austin Allen capped a seven-play 65-yard drive with a six-yard touchdown pass to Jared Cornelius on the first possession of the game for the Razorbacks. Cornelius finished the day with 35 yards on three receptions.
After Texas A&M tied the game in the first quarter, Arkansas responded with its second long drive of the day. With redshirt freshman Cole Kelley in the game, the Razorbacks were able to take a 14-7 lead off of a 2-yard pass to David Williams. It was the only completion of the day for Kelley, as he went 1-for-2 for two yards and a touchdown through the air. The young quarterback also had 21 yards on four rushes.
David Williams scored for the third time Saturday afternoon, this time from 3-yards out to give Arkansas the lead once again. Williams finished the afternoon with two rushing touchdowns and one receiving, marking the first time Williams has had three touchdowns in a single game in his career. The graduate transfer finished with 68-yards on 11 carries while also having 28 yards receiving.
Arkansas returns home to face New Mexico State in Razorback Stadium at 11 a.m. on the SEC Network.
