Record Breaking Crowd for Red-White Game

The Razorbacks held their annual Red-White spring scrimmage Saturday in front of 51,088 fans. This was a record attendance for the game, beating last year's previous record of 42, 250.

Head coach Bret Bielema made things interesting by playing the No. 1 offense against the No. 1 defense.

The offense finished with 540 total yards. Brandon Allen and Brandon Mitchell split most of the snaps at the quarterback position. Allen finished 11-16 for 158 yards and one touchdown. Mitchell finished 12-17 for 138 yards and one touchdown. AJ Derby also completed a touchdown pass.

Patrick Arinze led the rushing game with nine carries for 66 yards. Jevontee Herndon had 85 yards on 6 catches. Demetrius Wilson, D'Arthur Cowan and Jeremy Sprinkle also had touchdown catches.

Field goal competitions were held at the end of the first quarter and third quarter. After the first quarter, Zach Hocker was 3-3 kicking from 27, 37, and 52 yards. Henson recorded a 22-yard field goal.

After the third quarter, Zach Hocker went 3-4 kicking from 27, 37 and 49 yards. Henson went 2-3 kicking from 22 and 32 yards.

Tiquention Coleman and Will Hines both recorded two defensive interceptions. Coleman was the leading tackler along with Ray Buchanan Jr. with nine tackles. Taiwain Johnson had two sacks. Trey Flowers, Deatrich Wise and Brandon Lewis each had one sack.

After a disappointing season last season, the Hogs fans haven't given up yet and have faith in Bielema to put this program right back to where Petrino had it.
