Hogs show signs of running the ball
By Chris Low
AUBURN, Ala. -- Other than the nice play call on Ryan Mallett's 7-yard touchdown pass to Van Stuman to give Arkansas an early 7-0 lead, what stood out about the Hogs’ scoring drive was that they were able to run the ball a little bit.
Knile Davis got the drive off to a good start with a 7-yard run. Making yards on first down will be key for both teams.
But even more important was Broderick Green's surge up the middle on third-and-1 from the Auburn 9.
The Hogs came into the game last in the SEC in rushing offense, and running the ball more effectively has been a big push in practice the last few weeks.
