Arkansas OL looking for short-yardage improvement after loss

The calling card for the 2016 Aggies - who defeated No. 17 Arkansas 45-24 on Saturday at AT&T; Stadium - is a bona fide elite defense. A&M; really had three goal-line stands Saturday since in the second quarter a third-down penalty gave Arkansas a first down at the 2, but the Razorbacks still had to settle for a field goal.

On yet another occasion - the drive after Arkansas had to settle for that second-quarter field goal - Williams busted through the line for what was destined to be an 9-yard touchdown on first-and-goal, but instead, Texas A&M; safety Armani Watts ripped the ball from Williams at the 1 and recovered it, killing the Hogs' scoring chance.

Knight also took advantage of an Arkansas defense that was focused on A&M;'s other rushing weapons. Now 4-0 to start a season for the fourth straight year, the Aggies looked like the real deal and could prove to be the one remaining threat for Alabama in the SEC West.

Bret Bielema had much to keep him awake after his team's first loss, but the shabby performances of his offensive and defensive lines surely must trouble the Razorback coach, now 0-4 against the Aggies.

Austin Allen said, "He was running great routes all week in practice". I'm not saying that we're a three-yards-and-a-cloud-of-dust team, but we'd like to get better in the red zone.

A Southwest conference classic.

After Saturday, the Razorbacks play a stretch of games against No. 1 Alabama, No. 16 Ole Miss, Auburn, LSU, and No. 23 Florida that's as hard on paper as the program has ever faced.

An Aggies team that held off UCLA in overtime in its opener and escaped an average Auburn team on the road came to Arlington and did what it always does: Wipe the field with Arkansas, its personal punching bag, which extended A&M;'s SEC record to 2-0 with a gimme of a game at hapless SC next weekend.

The Aggie defense came up with timely stops to hinder Razorback possessions.

He stressed that the water moves slowly, 1,000 feet per month, and that no wells in the area have been impacted by the leak. The company should have issued a news release, but the county also should have taken a more proactive role, Bell said.

"Our ability to be able to run it in the second half when we needed to run it is a big step for this team", Sumlin said after the win Saturday night.

It's been an interesting journey for this Texas A&M; squad.

"Do we want it to be as exciting as it has been?" Alabama continues to get the majority of the first-place votes with Ohio State and Clemson claim two and one, respectively.

Arkansas holds the longest winning streak in the series between the schools that dates to 1903.

If No. 11 Tennessee wins at Georgia and No. 9 Texas A&M; wins at SC on Saturday, CBS could have a shot at broadcasting a top 10 matchup of unbeaten teams the following week. He also threw for 225 and two scores.

It seems like Knight is getting more comfortable in College Station and had by far his biggest game with the Aggies.

Sure, by the numbers, the Razorbacks did alright - offensively at least. The ball wasn't catchable at the point Coley chose to make contact with Aggies WR Speedy Noil but that didn't stop him from lowering the boom on Noil.

"I pulled up my Twitter account and I took a picture with him two weeks ago", Bielema said.

Since returning from a broken neck suffered previous year against Auburn, Williams, a sophomore, leads the SEC in rush attempts (71), and he's topped the 100-yard mark in each of the last two games - including a 137-yard performance in the win over TCU. The last two teams were filled with freshmen and sophomores on the depth chart, part of Kevin Sumlin's recruiting classes that were expected to pay immediate dividends.
