Arkansas scored 21 in each of the first three quarters Saturday to run away with a 63-27 victory in Fayetteville, Ark.
Former Michigan quarterback Ryan Mallett (above) was 14-of-16 passing for 248 yards and three touchdowns. He didn’t play the fourth quarter. Arkansas (4-4) had 589 yards total offense, while EMU (0-8) had 348.
“They are all right,” EMU coach Ron English told The Arkansas Traveler about the Razorbacks. “I don’t think they are great. (Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino) is going to try to score as much as he can. That’s what he does.”
Alex Gillett (left) and Kyle McMahon played quarterback for EMU. McMahon was 10-of-19 passing for 231 yards and three touchdowns and an interception. Gillett was 3-of-7 for 28 yards.
“(Our players) didn’t do what they were supposed to do,” English told The Arkansas Traveler. “We’re building a program. We’re building trust. When they start trusting, then we will have success.”
