Recap: Arkansas vs. Southern Miss

Fayetteville, AR (Sports Network) - Another 100-yard rushing effort from both Alex Collins and Jonathan Williams paved the way for Arkansas to claim a 24-3 win over the Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles in non-conference play from Razorback Stadium.

Williams ran for a game-high 116 yards and a touchdown, while Collins finished with 115 yards and a score to help the Razorbacks (3-0) remain unbeaten under first-year coach Brett Bielema. It marked the third straight game to open the season that Collins and Williams have each eclipsed 100 yards rushing.

The Golden Eagles (0-3) suffered their 15th consecutive loss. Jalen Richard had 94 yards on 14 carries, but Southern Miss finished with only 254 yards of total offense for the game.
