FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) Arkansas might never lead the Southeastern Conference in passing yards with coach Bret Bielema's balanced approach to offense.

Led by senior Brandon Allen, the Razorbacks could just have the conference's most efficient aerial attack this fall.

Allen was once again at his experienced best on Saturday, finishing 17-of-21 passing for 230 yards to highlight Arkansas' end-of-spring Red-White game. The third-year starter added three touchdown passes in leading the predominantly first-team Red to a 62-18 win - including a 65-yard strike to Keon Hatcher.


Kansas QB Cummings helped off field

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) David Beaty's first spring game as coach at Kansas could have gone better.

Senior quarterback Michael Cummings, who is fighting for the starting job, had to be helped off the field early in the second quarter after hurting his knee. Even though he was wearing a red jersey to prevent getting hit, Cummings was tackled by senior safety Michael Glatczak.


WVU defense dominates Gold-Blue game

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) With the top two running backs sitting out, West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen wondered who would step up in the annual Gold-Blue spring football game.

Receiver-turned-tailback Jacky Marcellus and redshirt freshman Dontae Thomas-Williams filled the void Saturday at Milan Puskar Stadium.


Arnett stands out again for Michigan St.

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) After falling short of expectations for three years, DeAnthony Arnett looks like a different football player, like the one he has always known he could be.

It showed for the third straight weekend, as Arnett's White team defeated the Green 9-3 in the Spartans' spring game Saturday before a record crowd of 48,000.


UCLA freshman QB Rosen impresses Mora

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) Josh Rosen had to wait his turn in his first appearance at the Rose Bowl as a UCLA quarterback on Saturday. When the Bruins return on Sept. 5 for their season opener, the true freshman might be the first man up.

Rosen was 13 of 17 with two touchdowns and one interception to close out spring practice, earning a positive evaluation from UCLA coach Jim Mora.


K-State starting QB job still wide open

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) Kansas State coach Bill Snyder has been on the sidelines for enough spring games to know the difference between a crisp showing and a sloppy one.

The Wildcat's game Saturday, which was moved to Sporting Park in suburban Kansas City due to renovations at Bill Snyder Family Stadium, fell into the latter category.


Wisconsin backup QBs get extended work

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Perhaps the best way to measure how firmly Joel Stave has taken control of the quarterback reins at Wisconsin is to underscore how little he needed to display at Saturday's spring game.

The fifth-year senior led the Badgers' starting offense to a touchdown on his only series of the day before ceding the field to a host of underclassmen vying for the backup role.


Sutton defensive TD gets Orange by White

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Tennessee coach Butch Jones still doesn't know quite what to make of his team as it exits spring practice.

Cam Sutton scored on a 20-yard fumble return as the Orange team defeated the White 54-44 on Saturday in an Orange & White Game noteworthy for all the players missing due to injury.


3 TD runs highlight Hokies' spring game

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) Michael Brewer threw a touchdown pass, and Travon McMillian, Trey Edmunds and J.C. Coleman each scored on short runs to lead Team Medal of Honor to a 24-21 victory in Virginia Tech's spring game on a rainy Saturday.

"We've really had a good spring practice," Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer said. "I think we've got a lot of good character guys and a lot of good football players. I like where we are right now and we've got to keep going in a positive direction."


Defense stands out in Iowa spring game

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Akrum Wadley scored the lone touchdown of Iowa's spring game on Saturday as the defense shined.

The lack of offensive fireworks didn't concern Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz, saying it's par for the course during spring practice.
