FAYETTEVILLE (AP) - Alex Collins and Jonathan Williams combined to rush for 231 yards as Arkansas overcame an injury to starting quarterback Brandon Allen to defeat Southern Mississippi 24-3.
Allen injured his right shoulder on a 5-yard touchdown run in the first quarter on Saturday. The sophomore, who took over as the starter this season for Tyler Wilson, went for X-rays following the run and was replaced by junior AJ Derby.
Williams had 116 yard rushing while Collins had 115 for the Razorbacks (3-0). Collins became the first freshman in Southeastern Conference history to top the 100-yard mark in his first three games, the first player overall since Oklahoma's Adrian Peterson in 2004.
The loss was the 15th straight for the Golden Eagles (0-3), the longest losing streak in the country.
