Question of the Day
The Razorbacks (4-1) failed to take advantage of three fumbles recovered inside the Aggies’ 40. They got just one field goal out of the turnovers.
Mallett threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Joe Adams on his first series and hit Cobi Hamilton on a pinpoint 71-yard touchdown pass for another score later in the first quarter. When he stretched the lead to 21-7 with 53 seconds left.
But Jarrod Johnson led A&M (3-2) for a quick touchdown before the half, then a field goal in the third quarter to get within 21-17. Meanwhile, the Aggies’ defense took away the deep routes and pretty much everything else for Mallett.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) _ Jarrett Lee tossed a 3-yard touchdown pass to Terrence Tolliver with 6 seconds left after LSU kept its final drive alive with a successful fake field goal, and the Tigers pulled out another wild victory.
With 35 seconds remaining, LSU (6-0, 4-0) lined up for a game-tying, 52-yard field goal, but holder Drew Alleman threw a no-look pitch over his head to place-kicker Josh Jasper. The ball bounced, Jasper scooped it up on a hop and ran for the first down.
The play was reviewed to determine if it was a forward pass, which would have been incomplete and ended LSU’s hopes, but the ruling on the field stood.
Lett hit Tolliver for a 28-yard gain on the next play to get down to the 3 and on the second fade to the corner, Tolliver grabbed the game-winner.
The TD reception was also reviewed to see if Tolliver had a foot down in bounds with control of the ball. It was upheld and Les Miles and the Tigers handed the Gators (4-2, 2-2) a second straight loss.
No. 20 Wisconsin 41, Minnesota 23
MADISON, Wis. (AP) _ John Clay ran for three touchdowns and freshman James White added two more to help Wisconsin to keep Paul Bunyan’s Axe for the seventh straight year.
Clay ran for 111 yards and White had 118 in another lopsided victory for Wisconsin (5-1, 1-1 Big Ten) in the most played rivalry in major college football, a series dating to 1890.
Clay has scored seven touchdowns in his three matchups with the Gophers and White has been hot recently with eight TDs in his last three games.
