09/30/17 - Senior quarterback Austin Allen passed for 264 yards and three touchdowns, and Arkansas gained 461 yards in a 42-24 victory over New Mexico State at Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville, Ark., on Saturday. Allen completed 19 of 26 passes. The Razorbacks (2-2) scored touchdowns on six of their first seven possessions. New Mexico State (2-3) trailed 28-7 with 1:34 left in the second quarter but got a 27-yard field goal from Dylan Brown on the final play of the half. The Aggies opened the second half with an 80-yard touchdown drive, capped by a 9-yard pass from Tyler Rogers to O.J. Clark, to cut Arkansas' lead to 28-17 with 11:21 left in the third quarter. Arkansas responded with a 16-play, 63-yard drive that used 8:50 of game clock. Allen finished the drive with a 3-yard touchdown pass to Jonathan Nance. New Mexico State fumbled away the ensuing kickoff at its own 22 to set up a 1-yard touchdown run by Arkansas freshman running back Chase Hayden on the first play of the fourth quarter for a 42-17 lead. - The Sports Xchange
09/28/17 - QB Austin Allen has struggled to match the numbers he posted as a junior. In three games this season, Allen has completed 35 of 67 passes for 502 yards and four touchdowns, with two interceptions.
09/21/17 - Arkansas quarterback Austin Allen emerged as one of the top quarterbacks in the Southeastern Conference last season, and he entered this year as the league's leading returner in passing efficiency. So far, the senior's encore has yet to live up to the lofty expectations he set a year ago in his first season as the starter for the Razorbacks (1-1). Arkansas faces Texas A&M (2-1) in the Dallas Cowboys' AT&T Stadium on Saturday, doing so after a 28-7 loss to No. 16 TCU two weeks ago. The Razorbacks failed to score in the second half against the Horned Frogs, the third time in four games that's happened under coach Bret Bielema.
Allen has thrown for 135 and 138 yards in the first two games, the two lowest totals of his career as a starter. He's been plagued by an overhauled group of wide receivers and a struggling offensive line, but more than anything the Fayetteville native has looked uncomfortable and uncertain. "I'm looking for things to get open instead of throwing it open," Allen said. "Last year, I was just letting it rip." Allen averaged nearly 264 yards passing per game a year ago, throwing for 25 touchdowns and 15 interceptions and finishing with a passing efficiency rating of 146. He also completed 61.1 percent of his passes last season, a number that has fallen to 54.8 percent through two games this year — while his passing efficiency has dipped to 120.3. - AP College Football
07/11/17 - 2017 Preseason Maxwell Award Watchlist: QB Austin Allen, Arkansas,...Last year in his first season as the Razorbacks' top signal-caller, Allen immediately made his mark by leading the SEC with 3,430 passing yards, including a league-best 2,291 in conference play, in 2016. He finished with 25 touchdown passes, which ranked second in the conference, completed 61.1 percent of his passes (245 of 401) and boasted a 146.04 passer rating. His 3,430 passing yards and 25 touchdown passes each ranked fifth in single-season school history. Of his 25 touchdown passes, 19 came inside the red zone, which led the SEC and tied for 10th in the FBS. The Fayetteville product threw for 200-plus yards in 11 games, including four 300-plus yard performances in SEC play. - Arkansas Football
10/16/16 - Bret Bielema did his best to remind anyone who was listening throughout the week that Arkansas' only losses this season were to No. 1 Alabama and No. 6 Texas A&M. That included the No. 22 Razorbacks, who clearly took their coach's message to heart in a 34-30 win over No. 12 Mississippi on Saturday night. The win didn't have quite the suspense of Arkansas' (5-2, 1-2 Southeastern Conference) thrilling overtime win over the Rebels (3-3, 1-2) a year ago, but it was every bit as important - especially following a deflating 49-30 loss at home to the Crimson Tide a week ago. "I told the guys, 'Let's do whatever we have to do to protect this house,'" Bielema said. "They never wavered and needed help from the crowd, and they delivered." Austin Allen was at his usual best on Saturday night, completing 19 of 32 passes for 228 yards and three touchdowns. The junior now has an SEC-best 18 touchdown passes for the season, and he had plenty of help in the form of Rawleigh William's career-best 180 rushing yards on 27 carries. - AP Sports
