ARKANSAS 19, TULSA 15:
Hogs defense strong late in win
4th-quarter stops quell Hurricane
Running back Dennis Johnson (33) scores Arkansas’ first touchdown, an 8-yard run in the first quarter, as tight end Alex Voelzke (46) and wide receiver Javontee Herndon (19) celebrate. Johnson, who rushed for 109 yards on 22 carries, also scored Arkansas’ final touchdown from a yard out to seal the 19-15 victory over Tulsa. Johnson, a fifth-year senior from Texarkana, has consecutive 100-yard games for the first time as a Razorback.
On a bright homecoming afternoon that featured a revival of the Arkansas defense, it was fitting defensive end Chris Smith finished off Tulsa with a sack and a forced fumble.
