FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas fans have gotten their second extended look at the Razorbacks' likely replacement for record-setting quarterback Ryan Mallett.
Tyler Wilson produced mixed results Saturday in leading his White team to a convincing 45-14 victory over the Red in Arkansas' spring game at Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound junior from Greenwood, Ark., completed 12-of-25 passes and threw for 242 yards and three touchdowns.
His main competition, sophomore Brandon Mitchell, had a rough afternoon before an announced crowd of 42,000.
Mitchell's receivers dropped at least seven of his passes, but the 6-4, 230-pounder still struggled, finishing 11-for-28 with 85 passing yards and three interceptions. Senior safety Tramain Thomas snagged two interceptions, and sophomore Darrell Smith had a 40-yard interception return for a score.
