Williams, Tretola pace Arkansas past UAB 45-17
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- Jonathan Williams rushed for a career-high 153 yards and had two touchdowns, and even 350-pound offensive lineman Sebastian Tretola had a part in the fun as Arkansas rolled to a 45-17 win over Alabama-Birmingham on Saturday.
The win snaps a three-game losing streak for the Razorbacks (4-4), who led 35-0 at halftime and outgained the Blazers 484-195.
Tretola, the heaviest player on the Arkansas roster, provided the biggest highlight for the Razorbacks with his 6-yard touchdown pass to Alan D'Appollonio in the second quarter.
Williams topped his previous best of 151 yards rushing, set last year against Louisiana-Lafayette, while Brandon Allen added 205 yards passing and a pair of touchdowns.
Alabama-Birmingham (4-4), which had a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by J.J. Nelson, played without injured quarterback Cody Clements.
