FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas ended a chaotic spring caused by the firing of coach Bobby Petrino with a scrimmage that showed the Razorbacks still have reasons to be hopeful for a good season.
Tyler Wilson was 31-of-41 passing for 467 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Red team to a 65-0 win over the White in the spring game.
Petrino was fired April 10 following the revelation that he hired his mistress to a position in the football program and had paid her $20,000. Arkansas did its best to put Petrino behind it Saturday, taking the field in front of an announced crowd of 45,250 — besting last season's previous best of 42,000.
Wilson threw for 404 yards in the first half. He connected on two touchdown passes to Chris Gragg.
