KJ Jefferson had already ran for two touchdowns in the first half. When he found Jadon Haselwood over the middle in the third quarter, it was proof.
Auburn has no answer.
Jefferson’s 11-yard touchdown strike to Haselwood in the middle of the end zone with 6:02 left in the frame gave Arkansas a 24-13 lead. Jefferson ran for a one-yard score in the first quarter and a 13-yard one in the second to help the Razorbacks to a 17-13 lead at the break.
Haselwood, for his part, had five catches for 61 yards and the score to the point of the touchdown. Jefferson was 14 of 22 passing for 210 yards and he had 15 yards on the ground, a number that was lowered by three sacks for a loss of 18.
Offensive coordinator Kendal Briles has split the difference halfway through the third quarter. Arkansas has had 25 rushes and 22 passing attempts.

The photo isn't of KJ Jefferson
@SECNetwork keeps putting the wrong guy on KJ Jefferson’s bio strip. You’d think they’d catch that after the first time, but…

Jadon Haselwood deserves love
Jadon Haselwood was never going to be Treylon Burks 2.0, but he brought a similar toughness to that receiver room to help keep the Arkansas passing game afloat.
