The Razorbacks held their annual Red-White spring scrimmage
Saturday in front of 51,088 fans. This was a record attendance for the game,

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.

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,

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
