FAYETTEVILLE, ARK. (AP) - Ryan Mallett went 21 of 24 for 301 yards and three touchdowns to lead No. 17 Arkansas to a 44-3 victory over Tennessee Tech on Saturday night.

The Razorbacks, sporting their highest preseason ranking since 1990, recovered quickly from a sloppy start as Mallett threw an 85-yard touchdown pass to Joe Adams in the second quarter. It was the longest completion of his Arkansas career, and the Hogs led 23-3 at halftime.

Mallett threw for 30 touchdowns a season ago and became an immediate Heisman Trophy candidate when he decided to pass up the NFL for another season with the Razorbacks. He began the game 16 of 18, with the only blemishes a deflected pass that was intercepted and a dropped ball by a receiver that should have been a touchdown.
