FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. â€” The Arkansas Razorbacks' defense showed up for the second straight week as the Hogs trounced the Kentucky Wilcats 49-7 at Frank Broyles Field at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium Saturday night, despite more than an hour lightning delay in the first quarter. The game was finally called with 5:08 to go in the third after a second storm delay.
Facing a Kentucky team decimated by injuries, the Hogs (3-4 overall, 2-2 in Southeastern Conference play) scored 28 points in the first quarter, not even letting the Wildcats breathe. Arkansas limited Kentucky (1-6, 0-4) to just 48 yards in the first quarter, compared to its 307. Running back Jonathan Williams had almost half of the Hogs' total. He scored on plays of 74 and 77 yards, and the defense yielded only two first downs in the quarter.
