FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Paul Petrino couldn't have been happier with Arkansas' offensive output against Texas A&M last week, at least on the surface.
The offensive coordinator watched as the Razorbacks gained 515 yards on 98 plays, putting together five drives of more than 50 yards — all coming against an Aggies' defense that entered the game allowing an average of 279.7 yards per game.
So, what was Petrino's problem with all that offense?
It came in a 58-10 loss, one in which Arkansas' season-long struggles at finishing drives was again on display. The Razorbacks (1-4, 0-2 Southeastern Conference) scored on just one of their five trips inside Texas A&M's 20, a first-half field goal, causing the former offensive powerhouse to fall to 109th nationally in red zone offense heading into this week's game at Auburn (1-3, 0-2).
