Recap: Arkansas vs. Louisiana

Fayetteville, AR (Sports Network) - Head coach Bret Bielema notched his first win with the Razorbacks as Arkansas earned a 34-14 win over the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.

Bielema, who arrived in Fayetteville after a successful run with the Wisconsin Badgers, watched quarterback Brandon Allen complete 15-of-22 passes for 230 yards and three touchdowns. Hunter Henry caught five passes for 75 yards, while Javontee Herndon managed three receptions for 73 yards and a pair of scores.

Arkansas (1-0) was dominant on the ground with Jonathan Williams rushing for 151 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries and Alex Collins adding 131 yards on 21 attempts.

Louisiana (0-1) signal-caller Terrance Broadway completed 15-of-28 passes for 171 yards and a score, but was intercepted once and sacked three times. Jacob Maxwell was his key target with six catches for 77 yards and the lone touchdown reception.

Alonzo Harris led the way for the Ragin' Cajuns in the run game with 56 yards and a score on 10 carries, although the team as a whole gained just 85 yards on 32 attempts in the setback.

The Razorbacks struck first with a six-yard touchdown pass from Allen to Herndon, capping an impressive 11-play, 75-yard drive which lasted over six and half minutes to start the contest.

The Ragin' Cajuns responded in the beginning of the second quarter when they finished off a 10-play, 71-yard drive with a two-yard touchdown run by Harris.

Arkansas answered right back with Allen hitting Herndon for a 49-yard touchdown pass. Zach Hocker knocked through two field goals, including a 34- yard effort to close out the first half. To make it 20-unsanswered points for the Razorbacks, Allen threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Kiero Small midway threw the third quarter to give the hosts a 27-7 lead.

Louisiana needed just 2:19 to cover 75 yards in eight plays midway through the third to get back on the scoreboard, the drive culminating with an 11-yard TD pass from Broadway to Maxwell.

On the very first play of the ensuing drive for Arkansas, Williams raced 75 yards to the end zone. That score put the Razorbacks up by 20 points again, 34-14, and from there Arkansas maintained its distance from the Ragin' Cajuns to pick up the lopsided victory.

The Arkansas offense simply outplayed Louisiana's as the Razorbacks recorded 522 yards of total offense compared to just 274 from the Ragin' Cajuns.

In another move that bucks tradition, the Sharks completely revamped their on- ice leadership structure not by selecting new players to wear the precious singular letters on their uniforms, but by stripping the captaincy from Joe Thornton, removing the alternate tag from Patrick Marleau and leaving the other "A" vacant after Dan Boyle signed as a free agent with the Rangers.
