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.
