TCU Leaps Past Razorbacks, 28-7

TCU running back Kyle Hicks is tackled by Arkansas defender Mc Telvin Agim as he runs the ball in the first half of an NCAA college football game in Fayetteville Ark. Saturday Sept. 9 2017

Frogs O' War: This was a game that felt like it should have been a comfortable TCU win at several points, but missed opportunities and mistakes kept Arkansas hanging around until the fourth quarter.

-RB David Williams, a graduate transfer from SC, made an impact in his first game for the Razorbacks.

"We understand that if you want to be a Top 25, Top 10 team, you've got to win big games in non-conference, and we consider Arkansas a big game", Patterson said.

"You've got to be able to play people, like Arkansas, that can come right at you", Patterson said. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. CT on CBS. Though it's not as bad as what Texas A&M's head coach Kevin Sumlin had to deal with last week, Bielema can not have many more games like this going forward at Arkansas.

Off last week's Arkansas' 49-7 season-opening suffocation of Florida A&M, and TCU's 63-0 season-opening shutout last Saturday over Jackson State, the defensive staffs of both teams should have rested well this week. They also controlled the time of possession with 195 yards rushing as a team, led by a career-high 106 on the ground from sophomore Darius Anderson. Arkansas senior Austin Allen was 9-for-23 for 138 yards and a touchdown.

Patterson's Horned Frogs arrived displaying their customary accelerated uptempo offense and closed playing the smash mouth ball-control that's supposed to be the trademark of Arkansas fifth-year coach Bret Bielema.

"Defensively, they play his scheme very well".

While TCU brings in a risky passing attack with Hill at quarterback and a stable of talented receivers - 14 TCU players caught passes in the victory over Jackson State - Bielema's blueprint at Arkansas, and before that at Wisconsin, has been to control the ball with a powerful running game anchored by a big offensive line.

The Razorbacks, an SEC team at home as an underdog, is in an interesting situation here. Three came via the legs of Kenny Hill, who completed 21 of 31 passes but would have had an even better stat line had it not been for two drops, including one by freshman Jalen Reagor in the end zone. However, if Hill has time to sit in the pocket to throw darts to his receivers or run for yards as needed to keep the chains moving, the Horned Frogs could leave Fayetteville with a big non-conference victory.

Quarterback Kenny Hill threw for 206 yards and made four touchdowns helping TCU take a comfortable lead early on in that game.

John Scott, Arkansas' first-year defensive line coach, was in the National Football League on the New York Jets staff last season but implied he may have lost two years' sleep sending a not all that experienced defensive front in Arkansas' new 3-4 defense up against Hill protected by a huge, veteran offensive line starting four seniors at its five positions. Hill had one interception in 56 pass attempts in the three-point loss. "We'll really take self-inventory".
