BYU Goes into SEC Country, Beats Arkansas

BYU overcame a terrible start and delivered with clutch possessions late to beat Arkansas 38-31 Saturday night in Fayetteville.

Arkansas jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead 3 minutes into the game on a long run and punt return TD, but BYU tied it back up and kept it close the rest of the way. BYU lost the yardage battle 424-281, but timely plays and forced turnovers on both sides of the ball were the difference.

Arkansas took the lead 31-21 with 11:41 left in the third quarter, but BYU’s defense held the Razorbacks to zero points the rest of the way on the final six possessions.
