The Arkansas football team took a step forward last week, but took a step back against the Gators on Saturday.
The Razorbacks (3-3) suffered a 30-10 loss to the #18 Florida Gators (4-1) Saturday in a uninspired game by the Hogs. Arkansas is still winless in The Swamp and now 1-8 all-time against Florida.
A fumble by quarterback Brandon Allen gave the Gators prime field position early in the first, but Florida couldn’t capitalize as freshman Dan Skipper got his hand on the field goal attempt for his second block of the year.
The first quarter of the game looked incredible for the Razorback offense and it looked like the Hogs would give the Gators a tough game. Arkansas rushed for 81 yards in the first quarter which is about 15 yards more than Florida’s defense has given up in an entire game all season.
Jonathan Williams went in for a nifty 4-yard touchdown in which he reversed field and scored giving the Hogs the early 7-0 lead.
