Tennessee 63, Arkansas 20 -- Final


KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ Casey Clausen threw five touchdown passes, three to Cedrick Wilson, as Tennessee beat Arkansas 63-20 on Saturday.

Travis Henry ran for a career-best 214 yards on 25 carries and scored one touchdown for the Volunteers (6-3, 3-3 Southeastern Conference), who won their last two games with last-minute scores.

Arkansas (4-5, 1-5) has lost four straight for the first time since 1997 and has not won on the road this season.

Tennessee won its fourth straight by jumping out to a 35-0 lead in the first quarter. Arkansas never got closer than 35-14 even though tailback Fred Talley picked apart the nation's second-best rush defense (68.25 yards per game) for 142 yards.

After leading Tennessee to a 42-14 halftime lead, Clausen threw his final TD of the game, a 30-yarder to Wilson with 10:17 left in the third quarter. Clausen completed 16 of 27 pass for 191 yards.

Talley came back with a 30-yard touchdown run with 8:45 to go, but the extra-point kick failed, leaving it 49-20.

Henry was a one-man show on the ensuing drive, running for 65 yards to set up his own 16-yard touchdown that gave the Vols a 56-20 lead with 7:01 remaining in the third quarter.

The Vols got started in the first quarter with two quick TDs and a fake field goal before the defense got into the act. Clausen hit David Martin on a 2-yarder for the first TD with 12:43 left in the quarter, and he hit Eric Parker on a 30-yarder on the next drive.

Stalled at the Arkansas 2, the Vols came out to attempt a field goal on fourth down. Holder Seth Reagan grabbed the snap and took off through a big hole into the end zone to put Tennessee ahead 21-0.

Arkansas' first fumble led to Tennessee's fourth TD of the quarter. Clausen threw a 12-yard TD pass to Wilson with 1:21 left. The Tennessee defense struck again 23 seconds later. This time DeAngelo Lloyd forced Hampton to fumble and then grabbed the ball and ran it back 34 yards for a touchdown.

Arkansas held Tennessee scoreless until 1:01 left in the second quarter, but it was too late.
