DENNIS JOHNSON: The senior Razorback running back had a 100-yard rushing day for the second straight week, marking the first time he’s hit that mark in consecutive games. It was the fifth time he had rushed for 100 yards or more and the first time against a non-Southeastern Conference opponent. He turned in 100-yard performances against LSU in 2008, against Florida in 2009, and against Ole Miss last season and this year. Johnson ended the day with 109 yards on 22 carries, for an average of 5 per rushing attempt. He also caught three passes for 43 yards.
COBI HAMILTON: It was a record-setting day for the senior from Texarkana, Texas. He moved into first place in school history for single-season number of receptions with 69, moving in front of Jarius Wright, who set the record of 66 last year. His 177 yards on 11 receptions was good enough to win the Crip Hall Award given to the outstanding senior in the homecoming game. He also moved into third place on the Arkansas career receiving yards list after his second reception against Tulsa, giving him 2,456 yards after that catch. At the end of the day, he had 2,596. Second on the list is Anthony Lucas (2,879). Hamilton moved to No. 5 on the all-time career receptions list with 154, moving ahead of George Wilson, who had 144. Hamilton went into the game averaging 16.9 yards per reception in his career, so his 16.1 average per catch Saturday was just below normal for him. He is the only SEC player averaging more than 100 yards a game in reception yardage.
CHRIS SMITH: The junior defensive end from Mount Ulla, N.C., led all Razorback tacklers Saturday with eight, including four unassisted and a sack. The sack of quarterback Cody Green was good for an 8-yard loss and forced Tulsa to punt. Smith also broke up two passes around the line of scrimmage and was credited with two quarterback hurries. Smith started much of the 2011 season and has been in the lineup for every game this year.
TYLER WILSON: The senior quarterback from Greenwood had a good day, just not an outstanding day. He completed 21 of 31 for 272 yards and had an interception, but no touchdowns. His quarterback rating was a better-than-respectable 135. Wilson entered the game leading the SEC and ranked third in the nation in average yards per completed pass with 15.23 yards this season. His average Saturday was 12.9. Wilson’s has had four 350-plus yard passing games this season, which leads the conference and is second in the NCAA. He is the only player in the SEC averaging more than 300 yards passing per game — 322 going into the Tulsa game. Wilson is 15-6 as a starter and moved up to sixth on the UA single-season passing yards list with his performance against the Golden Hurricane.
DYLAN BREEDING: The senior punter made the best of his three opportunities Saturday, averaging 58.3 yards. He had a long punt of 69 yards to pin Tulsa back to its own 3 in the first half. Breeding went into the game ranked third among SEC punters and 11th in the nation with a 45.2 average. He is third on the UA punting yardage and career punts list.
ZACH HOCKER: The Arkansas kicker missed a fourth-quarter field goal that would have put Arkansas up by seven, but was true on two others. He grazed the left upright on a 31-yard field goal in the first quarter and nailed a 46-yarder in the second. He went into the Tulsa game averaging 7.9 points per game in his career, leading all active SEC kickers. He also is third in the nation in touchback percentage for kickoffs and leads the SEC in that department. His career field goal percentage (77.2 before the Tulsa game) is a school record.
