Wilson leads Arkansas past Auburn, 38-14

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Tyler Wilson threw for 262 yards on Saturday night, completing 19 straight passes at one point, leading No. 10 Arkansas to a 38-14 win over No. 15 Auburn.

Wilson, who set a school record with 510 yards passing in a win over Texas A&M last week, ended the first half against the Tigers by completing 18 straight passes. That included a 5-yard touchdown pass to Jarius Wright in the second quarter that gave the Razorbacks (5-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) their first lead at 21-14.

Wilson extended his streak to 19 in the third quarter before an incompletion ended the streak, which is the third-longest in SEC history.

Joe Adams also had a 92-yard touchdown run on Arkansas' first play of the second half to push the lead to 28-14. Michael Dyer led Auburn (4-2, 2-1) with 112 rushing yards, including a 55-yard scoring scamper in the first quarter.
