The Ole Miss rushing attack was out in full force on a cold night in Fayetteville, but early success from the Razorbacks proved too big of a hill to climb as Arkansas came away with the 42-27 win on Saturday night.
Despite Ole Miss receiving two huge 200-yard nights on the ground from Quinshon Judkins and Zach Evans, a high-scoring Razorback offense and three defensive takeaways helped Arkansas pull away early and hold on late as the Rebel ground attack heated up.
Both Judkins (214 yards, one touchdown) and Evans (207 yards, one touchdown) carried the load for the Rebel offense, marking the first time in school history that two Rebel rushers eclipsed 200 yards in the same game.
Saturday’s offensive performance ranks 3rd all-time in program history in terms of team rushing yards (463), while the team’s total yardage of 703 on the night ranks fifth all-time.
Ole Miss head football coach Lane Kiffin met with the media following the game to discuss the loss, answer questions about his future, and much more.
