No 3. As promised by Sam Pittman, there was no Georgia hangover in this Ole Miss game

When Arkansas football head coach Pittman spoke to the media leading up to the Ole Miss game, he told reporters that he would not let the bad loss to Georgia affect this game against Ole Miss.

Pittman was good to his word, evident by the lack of similar mistakes that they made against Georgia.

The penalties remained low throughout the entire game for the Arkansas Razorbacks. They committed just four penalties for 25 yards. If you contrast that with the 13 penalties for 101 yards they made against Georgia, that’s excellent improvement.

Additionally, the Hogs couldn’t get anything going on the ground against Georgia last week. However, against Ole Miss, the offense appeared to be firing on all cylinders. The team rushed for 350 yards total, led by Raheim Sanders who accounted for 139 yards on 17 carries.

Treylon Burks had a spectacular game with seven catches for 136 yards and one touchdown.
