The comeback is on in Fayetteville.
After falling behind 17-0 midway through the second quarter, Arkansas has woken up. Touchdowns on back-to-back drives from Rocket Sanders and the gem below to Jadon Haselwood have Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium alive again.
KJ Jefferson hit 237 yards passing on the touchdown strike to the transfer from Oklahoma. Haselwood’s grab gave him three for the game for 76 yards.
Things were quiet inside the stadium until Sanders’ first touchdown. Occasionally boos were heard, actually.
But when Jefferson found Haselwood on the far sideline and he scampered home, the place exploded.
Arkansas still trailed at the half, 17-14, but it’s looking less likely Bobby Petrino will break Razorbacks Country hearts for a second time.
Right now, anyway.
Watch out, Arkansas has woken up

In fairness, the game still has a half left. But things are looking up for the Hogs.
Razorbacks are predators, after all

Pittman said KJ can take over a game when he wants
Idk maybe you never take the ball out of KJ Jefferson's hands. That's just me though. Let's go Haselwood! https://t.co/9W8HoZnCup
