WATCH: Arkansas goes up by two scores on Penn State in Outback Bowl

·1 min read

Rocket Sanders ran for his second touchdown of the game with 2:08 left in the third quarter to lift Arkansas ahead of Penn State, 24-10, in the Outback Bowl.

Sanders’ one-yard touchdown run was the capper of a 4-play, 79-yard drive that took 1:38. And like the drive that came before it when quarterback KJ Jefferson scored from eight yards, Arkansas didn’t throw a pass on the series.

Jefferson started the drive by going 34 yards on the ground up the middle. He came down hard on the sideline, though, and sat for the rest of the drive. Sanders ran for 12 on the next play, then back-up quarterback Malik Hornsby went around the left side for 32 yards to set up Sanders’ second score.

Arkansas has run for 281 yards on 43 carries through Sanders’ third-quarter touchdown. Jefferson leads individually with 108 yards.
