HOGS 61 V 8 CHIEFS
The Chiefs won the coin toss, electing to defer, a small win on an otherwise miserable outing.
Starting QB Benjamin was lost to injury on their first series of the game (already down 7-0) as the Hogs continued to move the ball with ease.
Welbourn threw 5 scores (Morton with three, Renney with two). Morton the first half star, helping the Hogs pile on 35 in the first two frames.
Edwards was under pressure all day but did manage to generate a handful of wow plays, which should provide comfort moving forward. Ball security being an issue, the Chiefs giving the Hogs too many opportunities, including a pick six.
The Chiefs will look to regroup during the bye, hopefully get healthy and see if they can find a way to generate scoreboard pressure.
The Hogs now look toward Friday night, can their D shut down the Spartans league leading rushing attack? Will the Spartans be able to slow the explosive Hogs passing attack (10 passing TD’s V zero points allowed in two common opponent games)?
RAZORBACKS: Welbourn 5 passing. Ryan 1 passing, 1 receiving. Stewart 1 passing. Morton 3 receiving. Renney 2 receiving. Olive 1 receiving. Headding 1 rushing. Smith INT return for TD.
CHIEFS: Edwards 1 passing. Riach 1 receiving.
