At some point, the world should recognize Arkansas wide receiver Treylon Burks as the best wideout in the country.
The Razorbacks junior scored his third touchdown of the day, a career high, on a 39-yard pass from quarterback KJ Jefferson. Burks ran for a 49-yard score in the first quarter and caught a 19-yard touchdown pass earlier in the second. Jefferson has thrown for four touchdowns in the first half.
Arkansas led Arkansas-Pine Bluff after the first half, 45-0.
