Two Razorbacks win SEC Player of the Week honors
The Razorbacks walked away with more than the Golden Boot Trophy this weekend, as two players emerged from the 31-14 victory over LSU honored with individual SEC player of the week awards.
Junior lineman Dan Skipper walked away as the league's most recognized offensive lineman:
• Arkansas ran the ball on 40 of 56 offensive plays, rushing for a season-high 299 yards with three touchdowns - most rushing yards against LSU since Sept. 20, 2014.
• Sixth time this season, including five of six SEC games, Arkansas has rushed for over 200 yards compared to five times in 2014 and once in SEC action.
• Arkansas leads the SEC with five 200-yard rushing games in SEC play and is second yards per game (204.3).
• Arkansas' 299 yards rushing at No. 9 LSU were its most in an SEC game since it had 385 at LSU on Nov. 23, 2007.
• Arkansas had three runs of 25-plus yards by three different players in its win at No. 9 LSU.
• Running back Alex Collins reached the 100-yard plateau for an SEC-best eighth time this season, while three players rushed for over 70 yards.
While linebacker Dre Greenlaw was named as the best rookie in the conference last weekend:
• Led Arkansas in tackles for the fifth time since entering the starting lineup in week three.
• His 12 tackles at LSU marked his fourth double-digit performance in the last six games.
• Forced a fumble on his first career sack at No. 9 LSU which led to a touchdown and a 21-0 Arkansas lead.
