#21 Arkansas beats Ole Miss 38-24

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Knile Davis ran for 176 yards and

three touchdowns, and No. 21 Arkansas weathered two delays to beat

former coach Houston Nutt and Mississippi 38-24 on Saturday.

The Razorbacks (5-2, 2-2 SEC) also got a 97-yard punt return for

a touchdown from Joe Adams in rebounding from a loss to Auburn last

week. The game was delayed twice by lightning that sent fans and

both teams scurrying for cover.

Arkansas led throughout the game, but the Rebels (3-4, 1-3)

twice pulled within a touchdown in the fourth quarter after a two

scoring passes from Jeremiah Masoli to Markeith Summers.

Both times, however, Davis answered with touchdown runs for the

Razorbacks - the first from 71 yards out and the second from 22.

Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett, returning from a concussion

sustained last week, finished 13-of-24 passing for 196 yards before

leaving the game in the second half.
