Whaley & Arkansas Fall to TCU

Devwah Whaley and his Arkansasí teammates offense was unable to move the ball against No. 23 TCU, managing just 274 yards of offense while scoring seven points, they fell 24 - 7 to TCU.

Whaley had 10 carries for 46 yards

The Razorbacks wasted little time responding after TCU took an early 7-0 lead in the first quarter. Junior Jonathan Nance took his first reception of the afternoon 49 yards into the end zone to bring Arkansas even with TCU. Nance finished with three receptions for 75 yards, marking the second consecutive week heís led the team in receptions.

The 49-yard score was Austin Allenís longest touchdown pass since Oct. 15, 2016 when Dominique Reed took a 51-yard pass from Allen to the house against then No. 12 Ole Miss.

Junior captain Santos Ramirez came up with his third career interception on TCUís last drive of the first quarter. Ramirez picked off TCU QB Kenny Hillís throw deep down the middle, wrestling it away from the wide receiver and returning 16 yards.

The Arkansas defense capitalized on a mistake by TCU, as redshirt freshman Briston Guidry recovered a fumbled snap to give the Razorbacks possession and keep it a 7-point margin early in the second half. The Hogs forced two turnovers, the first of which was an interception by Junior Santos Ramirez in the first quarter.

Junior Dre Greenlaw led the defense Saturday afternoon with a career-high 17 tackles. The defense was strong most of the afternoon, holding the high-powered TCU offense to 14 points through the first 55 minutes of game time.
