McFadden, Jones too much for Troy; Arkansas wins 46-26

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Darren McFadden has started his Heisman Trophy campaign in style.

He ran for ran for 151 yards and a touchdown today and also threw for a score in Number 21 Arkansas' 46-to-26 victory over Troy.

McFadden was last year's Heisman runner-up and he helped the Razorbacks pull away in the third quarter.

Arkansas led only 23-17 at halftime, but Felix Jones scored on a 44-yard run and McFadden tossed a 42-yard touchdown pass to Crosby
Tuck to make it 37-17.

Freshman Alex Tejada added four field goals for Arkansas which was the most by a Razorback since 2003.

Omar Haugabook went 15-of-43 for 204 yards and a touchdown with an interception for Troy before walking off slowly with an apparent injury in the fourth quarter.

The Trojans' running game also struggled. Kenny Cattouse was held to 44 yards on 15 carries.
