With no time left in the first quarter, Arkansas running back Rocket Sanders was celebrating.

His three-yard touchdown run as time expired was the first touchdown in the Razorbacks’ Outback Bowl against Penn State.

Arkansas had a chance at points a couple plays earlier when it was fourth down from the Penn State 6. But instead of attempting a field goal, coach Sam Pittman elected to go-for-it. Sanders went three yards to the left on 4th-and-2.

One play later, he was into the end zone, capping a 12-play, 61-yard drive that took 5:42 off the clock.

Sanders had five carries for 30 yards and the score in the first quarter. Quarterback KJ Jefferson had another 19 yards on six carries and running back Dominique Johnson added 37 on five as Arkansas dominated on the ground in the opening 15 minutes.
