Georgia wins wild one over Arkansas

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Joe Cox threw for 375 yards and five touchdowns, and No. 23 Georgia pulled away for a wild 52-41 win over Arkansas on Saturday night.

The Razorbacks (1-1) led 35-34 in the third quarter, but the Bulldogs' struggling defense held Arkansas to two short field goals the rest of the way. It was the second straight high-scoring win for Georgia, which edged South Carolina 41-37 last weekend.

Ryan Mallett set two school records for Arkansas, throwing for 408 yards and five touchdowns.

The teams fell short of the Southeastern Conference record of 104 points in a non-overtime game, set when South Carolina beat Mississippi State 65-39 in 1995.
