    FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. Panthers Hoodies Jerseys Sale . -- Austin Allen connected with tight end Jeremy Sprinkle for a fourth-down touchdown pass in the fourth quarter and Arkansas rallied for a 21-20 win over Louisiana Tech on Saturday.The game-winning pass was from four yards out and came after the Razorbacks (1-0) trailed for much of the second half.Making his first start at quarterback for Arkansas, Allen finished 20-of-29 passing for 191 yards and a pair of touchdowns along with two interceptions. Rawleigh Williams led the Razorbacks with 96 yards rushing on 24 carries, including a touchdown.Freshman JMar Smith, playing in place of suspended starter Ryan Higgins, finished 19 of 31 for 212 yards passing for the Bulldogs (0-1).Louisiana Tech took a 20-14 lead in the third quarter after a 20-yard field goal by kicker Jonathan Barnes.Arkansas -- after struggling to slow the Bulldogs pass rush for much of the game -- then righted itself and put together a 13-play, 67-yard touchdown drive midway through the fourth quarter. Allen capped the drive by finding Sprinkle on a throwback to the left side of the end zone on fourth down.Im glad (Arkansas coach Bret Bielema) called it, Allen said. Wed been practicing that play all week, everybody knew what they were doing and we did it perfectly. It worked out for us.After opening last season 2-5, including a loss to Toledo, Arkansas had stressed the need for a faster start to the season entering Saturdays home opener.However, a pair of first-half turnovers by the Razorbacks led to two touchdowns by the Bulldogs -- who settled for a 14-14 tie at halftime after kicker Barnes 54-yard field goal attempt went wide right to end the half.Barnes missed another kick off the left upright from 39 yards that would have put Louisiana Tech up 23-14 in the fourth quarter.Arkansas then went ahead on the Sprinkle touchdown and then sealed with win with another fourth-down conversion late, this one on a run on fourth-and-inches by Kody Walker.You make the fourth-down decision looking to have success, Bielema said. The last one, its just a gut feel. I just had a feeling we were going to have a nice push, and it ended up sealing the game.THE TAKEAWAYLA. TECH: Minus 13 starters from a year ago, and with Higgins on the bench, the Bulldogs looked every bit as good as its teams that have won nine games in each of the last two seasons. Smith had little problem picking apart Arkansas defense, with wide receiver Trent Taylor leading the Bulldogs with eight catches for 78 yards.I think we have an awful lot of positive things to build on, but I dont think this a game we wanted to be close, Louisiana Tech coach Skip Holtz said. We dont want to be close, we want to win.ARKANSAS: The Razorbacks entered the season with three new starting offensive linemen, and their inexperience showed on Saturday. Arkansas allowed four sacks of Allen in the close victory, and it managed only 106 yards rushing on 40 carries.UP NEXTLA. TECH: The Bulldogs take a break from Power 5 conference competition when they face South Carolina State in their home opener, a week before traveling to face Big 12 Conference member Texas Tech.ARKANSAS: Life doesnt get any easier for the Razorbacks, who travel to Texas to take on No. 13 TC Marquis Haynes Hoodie . According the Toronto Star, a knee injury will keep Sundin out of the lineup, which includes former teammates Gary Roberts, Darcy Tucker, Tie Domi and Curtis Joseph. Jermaine Carter Jr. Hoodie . -- Arizona raced out to a big lead and did not back off, hitting the accelerator instead. . The Browns coaching search remains incomplete. PITTSBURGH -- As a general rule, Pittsburgh kicker Chris Blewitt tries to steer clear of social media. He logs onto Facebook only occasionally, joking he likes something every couple of months so people know hes still alive. Twitter is pretty much out. Consider it an act of self-preservation to avoid the all-too-convenient puns that pop up whenever one of his kicks sails wide of the mark.Funny how all those puns vanished when Blewitt drilled a last-second 48-yard field goal that lifted the Panthers over then second-ranked Clemson 43-42 and sent shockwaves throughout the College Football Playoff picture.Its always fun to be able to shut people up, Blewitt said.Something Blewitt and the Panthers (6-4, 3-3 ACC) did with one frantic fourth-down fourth-quarter stop and one final sweep of Blewitts right leg in what by any stretch is the programs biggest victory in nearly a decade, Septembers thriller over Penn State included.Based on my phone blowing up, it was bigger than the Penn State win, coach Pat Narduzzi said.Now comes the hard part: backing it up. As cathartic as holding off the Nittany Lions felt in the renewal of a rivalry that was dormant for 15 years, the momentum didnt last. Pitt went on the road and dropped its next two games, narrow losses to Oklahoma State and North Carolina.Doing the same while wrapping up the regular season at home against Duke (4-6, 1-5) and Syracuse (4-6, 2-4) and all the joy will fade quickly. And the Panthers know it.At 3 p.m. on Saturday afternoon, nobody cares what you did last week, coach Pat Narduzzi said.True, though if theres one hallmark Narduzzi has tried to imprint on the Panthers during his two seasons on the job its this: be resilient. Its why he gave Blewitt a kiss (literally) after an early extra point attempt was blocked. Yes, really.Id say it definitely was a first, Bleewitt said. Panthers Hoodies Shop. I do appreciate the message, but the gesture caught me off guard.Narduzzi understood there would be a point later in the game when Pitt would need Blewitt to come through again and rather than have Blewitt spend 15 minutes on the bench beating himself up, Narduzzi opted to take a more optimistic approach. For all of Narduzzis sideline histrionics, he makes it a point to never publicly chastise his players. Thats what practice is for, not the games.I could tell he was down a little bit, Narduzzi said. He just had that look on his face. I told him, `Wipe that off. Theres not a player on offense, defense, that didnt make a (mistake).Blewitt atoned -- and then some -- by nailing the kick that served as the tipping point of a wild Saturday in which the Nos. 2, 3 and 4 teams in the College Football Playoff ranking lost. Seeing the replay, the one in which Blewitt raised his arms to signal good almost the instant the ball left his foot, was cool. Yet it was one step in the process.I wouldnt say, `I did it, Blewitt said. Id say our team definitely came through.It also allowed the Panthers to head home without the pressure of trying to become bowl eligible. Pitt, however, is quick to avoid the notion that it has finally arrived. Celebrating on the field in Death Valley was a sweet moment to be sure, but also a fleeting one if it doesnt turn into something more.Its great to knock off the No. 2 team in the country, Narduzzi said. If were capable of coming to Heinz Field and getting it done, its just as big. Other people might not think it but (we do). ...
