Razorbacks run past Vols, 49-7

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- Dennis Johnson accounted for 140 total yards and a pair of touchdowns to help No. 8 Arkansas beat Tennessee 49-7 for its sixth consecutive victory.

The Razorbacks (9-1, 5-1 Southeastern Conference) kept alive their hopes for a second-straight BCS bowl game -- and possibly more. They also earned their seventh straight win against an SEC East opponent.

Johnson led Arkansas with 97 yards rushing, including a 71-yard touchdown run in the first half. He also had 43 yards receiving.

Jarius Wright added five catches for 94 yards, setting the school record for career receptions. Wright now has 154 catches, moving ahead of Anthony Eubanks' previous record of 153.

Rajion Neal had an 11-yard TD run for the Volunteers (4-6, 0-5).
