Top 25: TCU Horned Frogs wear down Arkansas Razorbacks

TCU running back Kyle Hicks slips past Arkansas defender Armon Watts to score a touchdown in the first half of an NCAA college football game in Fayetteville Ark. Saturday Sept. 9 2017

He missed his first kick Saturday, the 23-yarder, from the left hash, reminiscent of the attempt he failed to convert at TCU a year ago and one that nearly cost the Razorbacks when the Horned Frogs rallied. Previous year the Hogs were outgained 572-403 in total yards by the Frogs but still went on to win the game in overtime. But not because it would help the Big 12. The Horned Frogs improve 2-0 this season while the Razorbacks are now 1-1. Arkansas has gone 10-22 in the last four SEC seasons. The Hogs struggled on the all-important third-down, converting just 4-of-14. Hill accounted for almost 500 yards of total offense in that game, but he was content to let TCU's remarkable defense control the game for much of Saturday.

The Arkansas defense capitalized on a mistake by TCU, as redshirt freshman Briston Guidry recovered a fumbled snap to give the Razorbacks possession and keep it a 7-point margin early in the second half. Hayden rushed for 120 yards on 14 carries, including a 5-yard touchdown in the third quarter, to become just the third Razorback to cross the 100-yard bar on the ground in his freshman debut. Hicks, who is expected to play against Arkansas, was TCU's leading rusher last season with 1,042 yards and also had a team-high 47 receptions out of the backfield. Even with a comfortable opening win, Arkansas had plenty of things to work on in practice this week before kicking off against TCU.

Basically, the tide is starting to turn on Bielema.

Arkansas true freshman cornerback Kamren Curl made his first start Saturday. Kenny Hill has throw for just 95 yards on 18 attempts.

The Horned Frogs respect Allen.

16 - Number of games with an interception for Kenny Hill in his last 20 appearances.

Razorbacks senior receiver Jared Cornelius was back returning punts Saturday after Henre Toliver handled those duties against Florida A&M. Robinson, a true freshman who led DeSoto to a state title previous year, looked particularly good in his first action in relief of Hill, throwing a 56-yard TD on his second career attempt. Hicks sat out TCU's opener against Jackson State due to an undisclosed injury suffered in August camp.

"I am excited to play a non-conference big time game and TCU is as good as it gets". He threw one interception and was occasionally under pressure.

TCU: The Horned Frogs had lost 31 of their last 34 games to Arkansas dating to 1959, and they felt as if they let a win slip away in Fort Worth last season.

Arkansas' Austin Allen was 9 of 23 for 138 yards, a year after accounting for four touchdowns in the Razorbacks' double-overtime win at TCU. TCU fell to Arkansas 41-38 in two OTs last season in their first meeting in 25 years.
