Flashes and dashes

Hogs find safe haven in end zone

Arkansas safety Ross Rasner (right) sacks Kentucky quarterback Jalen Whitlow in the first quarter of the Razorbacks’ storm-shortened 49-7 victory Saturday at Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville. Arkansas had two sacks in the game, which was delayed once in the first half and a second time in the third quarter. During the second stoppage, with 5:08 left in the third quarter, a decision was made to call the game.

Arkansas knew blustery wind, rain and lightning would impact the playing conditions late Saturday, so the Razorbacks created their own kind of storm from the outset against Kentucky.
