first quarter lead. But Vanderbilt only gained 13 yards the rest of

the game.

Mallett broke the school record for yardage on a 17-yard

completion to Greg Childs early in the fourth quarter. Two of his

touchdowns went to junior receiver Jarius Wright, who finished with

6 catches for 87 yards.

Arkansas outgained the Commodores 555 yards to 153 in the win.
