(247SPORTS.COM)– After a couple of frustrating weeks, Arkansas (6-5, 3-4 SEC) reversed course and erupted offensively in Saturday’s 42-27 win over No. 14 Ole Miss, and sophomore running back Raheim Sanders led the charge on what was a cold night inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville (Ark.).
After being limited to 106 yards on 29 carries with no touchdowns over the last two games combined, Sanders had a much-needed breakout performance against the Rebels with 24 carries for a career-high 232 yards and three touchdowns, while also leading the team with five receptions for an additional 29 yards.
“I was proud of him,” said quarterback KJ Jefferson.
“Early on, I just told him ‘Just trust yourself. It’s going to happen.’ So, it just happened. He trusted himself, and the O-Line created lanes for him. He hit the hole and just played the ball from that point. Extremely proud of his patience, just running the ball and also just believing in himself and keeping his confidence throughout the game.”
