Both Quarterbacks Soaring
The Razorbacks have been getting excellent play from Allen who was the SEC Player of the Week after throwing for 233 yards and three TDs in the Week 2 win over TCU. He didn’t have to do much last week in a 42-3 rout of Texas State but he still threw for 241 yards and two touchdowns. He has completed 67.1% of his passes this season and has 7 TDs and two interceptions.
“Austin does a lot of things very well,” head coach Bret Bielema said. “I think he throws on the move very well, and he throws well to the left and to the right which you’ve seen a little glimpse of. He can run the football, but I wouldn’t say we want to make a heavy dose of it. That jump cut he gave to his left wasn’t quite as good as our running backs, but it sufficed. I’m just excited to watch him continue to grow.”
Trevor Knight is a graduate transfer from Oklahoma and he is now leading the Aggies. Knight has thrown for 830 yards and five touchdowns this season. Knight has also run for 151 yards in the three games on 28 carries.
“I think he’s a deceptive big man with speed,” Bielema said. “He’s got good size. They list him at 6-foot-1 and 215. To me he looks a lot taller than that, and moves.”
