Much of the talk since December regarding Arkansas wide recievers was howthe Razorbacks could replace Treylon Burks.
The short answer was, well, they couldn’t. Not directly, anyway.
But Matt Landers and Jadon Haselwood arrived from Toledo and Oklahoma via the transfer portal and were both starters in their first game in an Arkansas uniform. Landers was quarterback KJ Jefferson’s favorite target in the first half.
But it was Haselwood who put the spark in the Hogs offense.
Immediately after Cincinnati cut Arkansas’ 14-0 lead to 14-7, Jefferson led the Razorbacks down the field on an eight-play, 75-yard drive. It was capped by a 19-yard touchdown pass – Jefferson’s second of the game – to Haselwood, whose adjustment at the goal line allowed it to happen.
So, no, maybe there isn’t another Burks. But at this rate, that conversation should settle quickly.
The Sooners' loss
JADON HASELWOOD!!! Former Sooner making big time plays for the Hogs! His first TD as a Razorback outs Arkansas up 21-7.

So far, so good
Jadon Haselwood beat nickel Sammy Anderson on a go from the slot, two other DBs collide at the goal line as Haselwood jumps for the catch and bows with the 19-yard TD catch, his first as a Hog. It's 21-7, 8:00 | 3rd
