Mark Harrison: Just two plays following Hamilton’s long score, Harrison responded with one of his own, beating Will Hines to extend Rutgers’ lead to 35-26.

Juwan Jamison: Arkansas downed a punt at the 1-yard line, but couldn’t corral Jamison on the next play. After bottling him up for what appeared to be a safety, Jamison escaped for a 24-yard gain
