LUBBOCK (AP) — Jonathan Williams ran for four touchdowns and Alex Collins added two more to lead Arkansas past Texas Tech, 49-28, on Saturday in a matchup of two former Southwest Conference foes.
Williams finished with 145 yards on 22 carries for the Razorbacks (2-1). He scored on rushes of 6, 13, 12 and 6 yards.
Collins finished with a career-high 212 yards on 27 carries, the longest an 84-yard TD in the fourth quarter to seal the win.
Arkansas quarterback Brandon Allen also added 5-yard touchdown run.
The win gave the Razorbacks back-to-back wins for the first time in more than a year.
Arkansas chewed up more than 13 minutes on back-to-back, 13-play drives in the second half, leaving the defense of the Red Raiders (2-1) spent.
Texas Tech’s Davis Webb completed 27 of 45 passes for 252 yards and three touchdowns. He rushed for TD and threw two interceptions.
