Arkansas snaps 4-game skid, 24-7 over Auburn
ARKANSAS 24, AUBURN 7

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) -- Dennis Johnson rushed for two touchdowns and
the Arkansas defense had eight sacks to help the Razorbacks snap
a four-game skid with a 24-7 victory over Auburn on Saturday.



Arkansas (2-4, 1-2 Southeastern Conference) had been blasted by
a combined score of 110-10 in its first two league games.



The Tigers (1-4, 0-3) were left at the bottom of the SEC West
after a second-half quarterback change failed to provide much of
a spark to an offense that committed five turnovers.



Tyler Wilson completed 20 of 27 passes for 216 yards. The
Razorbacks scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to pull
away before Auburn scored again in the final minutes.



Auburn coach Gene Chizik replaced struggling starter Kiehl
Frazier with Clint Moseley in the second half, seeking a spark
for a sputtering offense. Moseley threw a pair of interceptions
in the end zone during the fourth.



Auburn was shut down by the nation's 116th-rated defense until
late in the third quarter. Then Moseley found a wide open Emory
Blake, who stretched it across the goal line for a 21-yard
touchdown with 33 seconds left to make it 10-7.



The Razorbacks then pushed it back to a two-score margin with
some trickery. Receiver and former backup quarterback Brandon
Mitchell fired a 26-yard touchdown on a reverse pass to Javontee
Herndon with 13:30 left.



Johnson then ran for his second 2-yard touchdown midway through
the fourth. That was too much for Auburn to overcome.



Frazier was 9-of-14 passing for 118 yards with an interception
late in the first half with Auburn driving.



Moseley completed 13 of 21 passes for 163 yards with the two
picks. They were sacked four times apiece by a defense that had
collected seven sacks in the first five games combined.



Johnson had 17 carries for 76 yards for Arkansas as both
offenses often plodded along. Arkansas outgained Auburn 372-321
in total yards but held the Tigers to 40 yards on 32 rushes,
thanks largely to the sacks.



Blake did catch 10 passes for 118 yards and a touchdown for an
offense missing suspended starting receiver Quan Bray. He also
lost a fumble.



Arkansas receiver Cobi Hamilton was mostly held in check, with
five catches for 72 yards, all in the first half, after racking
up 465 yards in the last two games.



The Razorbacks bullied an Auburn offense struggling nearly as
badly as their defense.



The Tigers had the ball in Arkansas territory five times without
scoring before finally getting points on No. 6, and both
quarterbacks were swallowed up for big losses to stall drives.



The Razorbacks took a 10-0 lead into halftime despite two missed
field goals, a big turnaround for a team that had been outscored
65-20 in the first half of its last three games. Auburn also
missed a long attempt.



At first, it seemed like more of the same for Arkansas. The
Razorbacks cruised down the field on their opening drive and had
first-and-goal from the 6. Then Zach Hocker bounced a 25-yard
field goal off the right post.



The Razorbacks had to settle for a Hocker field goal in the
second quarter after taking over at the Auburn 29 following
Blake's fumble. They rediscovered the end zone late, though.
