Arkansas vs. Rutgers top performers


COBI HAMILTON: The senior from Texarkana, Texas, set a school record for receiving yards in a game with 303, surpassing Jarius Wright’s 281 in the comeback victory last year against Texas A&M. Hamilton recorded three touchdowns, including an 80-yarder in the fourth quarter that put Arkansas within two of the Scarlet Knights. A two-point conversion attempt failed and Rutgers scored on its next possession. Hamilton had another reception good for 57 yards. He averaged 30.3 yards per catch.

GARY NOVA: The Rutgers quarterback had his way with the Arkansas defense Saturday night. By the end of the third quarter he was 25 of 35 for 397 yards and five touchdowns. Brandon Coleman had six receptions for 89 yards and two touchdowns, but Nova spread it around, completing throws to eight different receivers.

TYLER WILSON: Wilson became the sixth Razorback in school history to amass 5,000 career passing yards, although it was in a losing effort. Wilson, who was coming off a concussion that kept him out of the second half against ULM and the entire Alabama game, was 20 of 40 for 419 yards. He surpassed the mark in the first quarter against Rutgers and ended up with 5,360 after Saturday’s performance. The fifth-year senior from Greenwood was knocked out of the ULM game. He is 11-4 in games he has started. Wilson owns 11 school records and ranks in the top 10 in school history in career passing touchdowns with 39.

JAWAN JAMISON: The sophomore running back did not have his usual night against Arkansas, but he escaped a safety when Arkansas had the Scarlet Knights penned back at the 1 in the fourth quarter and turned it into a 24-yard gain. For the night, Jamison had 93 yards on 28 carries, an average of 3.3 yards a try. Jamison was averaging 5.4 yards per carry and 124.3 yards per game heading into the Arkansas game. He had rushed for more than 100 yards in four straight games. The sophomore from Starke, Fla., also owns the school record for number of carries in a game — 41 against the University of South Florida. The record of 40 was set by J.J. Jennings against Colgate in 1972.
