FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Austin Allen threw for 241 yards and a pair of touchdowns in less than three quarters of action as No. 24 Arkansas made easy work of Texas State in a 42-3 win on Saturday night.The win is the ninth in the last 10 games for the Razorbacks (3-0), and it follows last weeks double-overtime win at TCU.Rawleigh Williams topped the 100-yard rushing mark for the second straight game for Arkansas, finishing with 121 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries. The Razorbacks outgained the Bobcats (1-1) 350-26 in total yardage in the first half.Texas State finished with just 105 yards of offense, and quarterback Tyler Jones was 11-of-26 passing for 83 yards and an interception that was returned by Arkansas Ryan Pulley for a touchdown.Texas State is not a (Southeastern Conference) football team, but we wanted to make the game about how we prepared and how we executed, Arkansas coach Bret Bielema said. I thought our defensive guys locked into that right away with a nice game plan.With Arkansas ahead 42-3 after three quarters and inclement weather nearing the area, both coaches agreed to shorten the game by five minutes and play only a 10-minute fourth quarter.In addition to Pulleys interception, Arkansas defensive lineman Jeremiah Ledbetter had 1 1/2 sacks and a pair of pass breakups. The Razorbacks held Texas State to 22 yards rushing on 26 carries.They were big and physical, just like we thought they would be, first-year Texas State coach Everett Withers said. ... Theyre deserving of a Top 25 spot, I believe.THE TAKEAWAYTexas State: The Bobcats put together an impressive performance in their season-opening triple-overtime win over Ohio, but they were outmatched against Arkansas. Texas State can look ahead, however, to an easier Sun Belt Conference schedule and count on improvement from the experienced Jones, who made his 33rd career start on Saturday.Arkansas: As convincing as the win was for the Razorbacks, it also came with an element of relief -- particularly after they struggled in a one-point win over Louisiana Tech two weeks ago. Now Arkansas can enter next weeks SEC opener full of confidence, and with thoughts of starting the season 5-0 before its next home game against No. 1 Alabama on Oct. 8.POLL IMPLICATIONS:Arkansas: A week after returning to the Top 25 following a double-overtime win over TCU, the Razorbacks are all but assured of moving up after their dominating performance on Saturday -- setting up an early Southeastern Conference showdown against Texas A&M next week.UP NEXTTexas State: The schedule doesnt immediately get any easier for the Bobcats, who once again faced a ranked opponent when they host No. 6 Houston next week.Arkansas: The Razorbacks return to Texas for the second time in three weeks when they face the No. 17 Aggies in the annual Southwest Classic at AT&T Stadium.---AP college football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org Wholesale Panthers Jerseys .

Phyllis Francis (49.94) and Natasha Hastings (50.17) will join Felix in Rio after finishing second and third.Two months ago, I couldnt even walk, Felix said. To be here and have everything still come together, I dont know quite how it happened.Felix now has a few days off until Friday, when the 200-meter preliminaries begin. She is trying to become the third woman in history to complete the 200-400 double.Justin Gatlin qualified for his third Olympic Games by winning the mens 100-meter final later Sunday. Gatlin, who was the only American man to medal in the sprint races four years ago at the London Games, with a bronze in the 100, finished in 9.80. Trayvon Bromell (9.84) and Marvin Bracy (9.98) finished second and third and will join Gatlin in Rio.Tyson Gay, who was trying to qualify for his third Olympics, missed the cut after finishing fifth overall (10.01).In the womens final, English Gardner, Tianna Bartoletta and Tori Bowie finished 1-2-3, all separated by 0.04 seconds.Earlier Sunday at trials, the womens Olympic high jump team was sealed, with Vashti Cunningham, Chaunte Lowe and Inika McPherson making the cut. At age 18, Cunningham, the daughter of former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham, will be the youngest U.S. track and field Olympian in 36 years.Im very appreciative for my placing. Just to be able to go to the Olympics, Im more thankful than disappointed, Cunningham said. It was a relief to qualify and know I was within the top three. But I still wanted to win. I always want to win.Cunningham said she lost some steam heading into her last set of jumps.My legs felt like they lost a little energy and strength, she said. Ill keep working toward Rio so that doesnt happen -- strengthen myself where I need more strength and strengthen my mentality.Lowe, who made her fourth Olympic team with a jump of 6 feet, 7 inches, and Cunningham staged quite a show for the fans.God blessed that girl, that little, tall girl, said Randall Cunningham, who coaches Vashti.

Joining him in Rio will be Gil Roberts (44.73) and David Verburg (44.82).People always say they look at my film to tell their athletes, This is how youre supposed to run the last part of the race, Merritt said. They havent been loooking at it lately.dddddddddddd I had to give them something to look at.Yet another world-best mark came from Lowe in the high jump. Her jump of 6 feet, 7 inches beat Cunninghams by 1 1/2 inches. Lowe is on the way to her fourth Olympics, seeking the medal that has always eluded her. Stoked by her performance and the others she saw on this breezy, sunshine-filled day in Eugene, she was thinking bigger, which was not hard to do on a day such as this.It felt so easy, she said. I think Ill be ready. Just keep training, fine-tuning. I think we could see a sweep of the podium.Other happenings on Day 3 at track trials:GARDNER IS A GO: Gardner ran a personal best 10.74 seconds in the 100 to put herself on a list of Olympic track-and-field newcomers that now numbers 25. She edged out Bartoletta, who will be going for a sprint-long jump double, and Bowie, another first-timer and the bronze medalist at last years world championships. Bartoletta and Bowie both finished in 10.78 and, according to a stat keeper for the IAAF, this was the first wind-legal womens 100 with three times of under 10.8.BACK TO CAMP: Marquise Goodwins dream of skipping training camp with the Buffalo Bills is over. The receiver/long jumper finished seventh and didnt qualify for the Olympics. He said he strained his hamstring during qualifications Saturday and couldnt recover in time for the final. Now, he will take a few days off and get ready for camp. Just a switch. Got to hit it, he said of the quick changeover.THIRD TIME IS A CHARM?: Gays chances of making a third Olympics now rest in either the 200 meters or a slot in the relay pool. Both Gay and Mike Rodgers were beaten for the third spot in the 100 by Bracy, a three-time national indoor champ at 60 meters who used to be a wide receiver at Florida State. Bracy is an Olympic newcomer, as is Bromell, the second-place runner who finished behind Gatlin in 9.84.PUNCHING TICKETS: Qualifying for long jump were 2014 national champion Jeff Henderson and Jarrion Lawson. Will Claye, the bronze medalist at the London Games, finished third but did not have a non-wind-aided Olympic qualifying standard. The other two will make their Olympic debuts. Finishing in the two spots behind Eaton were Jeremy Taiwo and Zack Ziemek.QUOTABLE: The one thing I love about the athletes I coach, they love running for the United States. She wants to make this Olympic team. That was something that, like you saw, she was willing to pull every muscle in her body. -- Allyson Felixs coach, Bob KerseeInformation from ESPNs Jim Caple and The Associated Press was used in this report.
