It looked like Arkansas was running away with the biggest win in the Bret Bielema era. Instead it was another defeat in the end.

Arkansas led 28-14 and Jonathan Williams broke a run heading into the Texas A&M red zone. The play was called back due to penalty and then the Aggies came back.

Scoring plays of 86 and 59 yards tied the game in regulation then Kenny Hill hit Malcolme Kennedy on the first play of overtime for a 25 yard score as Texas A&M rallied for the 35-28 win.

"A lot of things that caused us to lose this game today came from within. Our own locker room," Arkansas coach Bret Bielema said. "I'm not getting down on my guys. A certain part of our process to get to where we need to be. I think we made a lot of positives and steps forward but we can't win with eight penalties. I know that. The good news is we can correct those things. I thought our guys did several things throughout the course of the game to get excited about but obviously not enough to close it."

Arkansas rushed for 286 yards but the Razorbacks were stopped on a fourth-and-one on their overtime possession.

Hill finished the game 21-of-41 for 386 yards and four touchdowns. Edward Pope led the Aggies with four catches for 151 yards and two scores, including  an 86-yard score in the early part of the fourth quarter.

Arkansas led 21-14 at halftime thanks to a 51-yard touchdown run by Sam-Irwin Hill on a fake punt around the left end. The Hogs then pushed that advantage to 14 points on a 44 yard touchdown pass from Brandon Allen to A.J. Derby with 5:02 left in the third.

    Arkansas should have won this game no excuse, but Brandon Allen and his stupid running game, and all about him attitude, and Coach B threw the game away. I blame these two guys, and now I have lost confidence in the team. They had the Aggies whipped no excuses shame on you Brandon Allen.

      You’re still a mouth that knows little to nothing about college football. And two of us told you that before and you didn’t have the knowledge to respond. Unfortunately, you only mouth when others are down.

    Idiots… Yes we lost but I am seeing a lot of great things beginning to take shape with this team. We were not expected to win nor are we expected to win many games this season. This game was promising. A couple of errors toward the end cost us the game but all in all. I am happy with what I am seeing!!!! Go Hogs…
