No. 8 Arkansas 49, Tennessee 7

Arkansas standouts Jarius Wright, Joe Adams, Dennis Johnson and their teammates big-play Tennessee to death as the No. 8 Razorbacks drill the Volunteers 49-7 Saturday night before a crowd of 72,103 fans in the last home game at Reynolds Razorback Stadium.

Dennis Johnson accounted for 140 total yards and a pair of touchdowns to help No. 8 Arkansas beat Tennessee 49-7 for its sixth consecutive victory.

The Razorbacks (9-1, 5-1 Southeastern Conference) kept alive their hopes for a second-straight BCS bowl game - and possibly more.

They also earned their seventh straight win against an SEC East opponent while getting the win in the last home game at Reynolds Razorback Stadium for 17 seniors

Johnson led Arkansas with 97 yards rushing, including a 71-yard touchdown run in the first half. He also had 43 yards receiving.

Jarius Wright added five catches for 94 yards, setting the school record for career receptions. Wright now has 154 catches, moving ahead of Anthony Eubanks' previous record of 153.

Senior Joe Adams - who is now tied with Eubanks - had a dazzling 60-yard punt return and also caught a 40-yard touchdown pass.

Rajion Neal had an 11-yard TD run for the Volunteers (4-6, 0-6).

Jarius Wright works on hauling in a spectacular catch on a night when he took over the top spot on the career catches list at Arkansas.

Joe Adams finishes off a simply amazing 60-yard punt return in which six Tennessee players missed tackled and he outran the other five on the field.

Dennis Johnson had touchdown runs of 71 and 15 in the win.

Jake Bequette pressured Tennessee quarterback Justin Worley all night long.

Ronnie Wingo had a 20-yard scoring dash nullified because of a blocking-in-the-back penalty at the 1.

Bobby Petrino's team is now 9-1 and 5-1 in SEC action.
