Recap


Arkansas 19, Tulsa 15: Dennis Johnson ran for 109 yards and two scores while Cobi Hamilton added 177 yards on 11 catches as the host Razorbacks withstood the Golden Hurricane.

Arkansas (4-5) sealed its 18th consecutive victory in the series with a strip sack and fumble recovery in the final minute. Tulsa quarterback Cody Green, who sat out the team's last game against Rice on Oct. 20 with a shoulder injury, returned and went 22-of-37 for 222 yards but could not rally the Golden Hurricane (7-2), whose seven-game winning streak ended.

Johnson, who rushed for a career-high 161 yards last week against Ole Miss, opened the scoring with an 8-yard touchdown run and added the go-ahead 1-yard plunge in the fourth quarter that gave the Razorbacks a 19-15 lead.

Daniel Schwarz's 29-yard field goal had given the Golden Hurricane a 15-13 lead in the third quarter, capitalizing after Tulsa recovered a fumble. Arkansas' Zach Hocker missed a 26-yarder with 3:35 to play and the Razorbacks nursing the 19-15 edge, and they gave Tulsa the ball back on downs at the Golden Hurricane's 17 with 1:07 remaining.

Alex Singleton added to his school record with his 35th rushing touchdown early in the second quarter while Trey Watts scored on a 29-yard scamper with 2:49 to go as Tulsa pulled within 13-12 at halftime.

GAME NOTEBOOK:
Arkansas played without RB Knile Davis (hamstring) and TE Chris Gragg (knee), who were injured during last week's loss to Ole Miss. … Schwarz missed an extra point and had another one blocked, and also missed a 42-yard field goal - all in the first half. … Tulsa, which entered with an NCAA-high leading 35 sacks, got to Arkansas QB Tyler Wilson only once. … Trailing 15-13, the Razorbacks made a fourth-down stop at their 5-yard line.
