#15 Arkansas routs UTEP 58-21

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Ryan Mallett threw for a school-record

five touchdowns and ran for another as Arkansas defeated Texas-El

Paso 58-21 on Saturday.

Knile Davis added a career-best 182 yards rushing on just 11

carries for the No. 14 Razorbacks (8-2, 4-2 Southeastern

Conference), including a 70-yard touchdown run in the first

quarter. Arkansas ran for a season-best 321 yards in the win.

In what could be his final home game at Razorback Stadium,

Mallett tied the school record for touchdown passes for the fourth

time in his career. The junior has now set or tied 35 school or

stadium records at Arkansas in less than two full seasons at the

school.

The Miners (6-5, 3-4 Conference USA) took a 14-7 lead early in

the first quarter after Marlon McClure's 100-yard kickoff return

for a touchdown. The Razorbacks then took control, scoring 45

unanswered to take a 52-14 lead.
