Devwah Whaley and his University of Arkansas teammates defeated Portland State 20 - 13, at Donald W. Reynolds Stadium.
Touchdowns on the ground from Whaley and Rakeem Boyd, along with three Hog interceptions, were enough to grab a win in the season opener.
Senior Running Back Whaley scored Arkansas’ first touchdown of the 2019 season, punching it in from one yard out with 3:19 left to play in the first quarter. It was Whaley’s 13th-career touchdown, and his first since Arkansas played at Colorado State (9/8/18) last season.
Whaley finished the game with 9 carries, for 26 yards with the touchdown.
