Early in the fourth quarter, Texas passed up an almost-certain field goal and Rice held Texas on fourth down just inches from the goal line. Texas' first touchdown came on a 1-yard plunge by A.J. "Jam" Jones, the nation's fourth-leading rusher, after a pass interference call in the end zone gave Texas a first down at the Rice 1 late in the first quarter.

Arkansas rallies to nip TCU, 16-13 FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Kevin Scanlon's 51- yard pass to tight end Darryl Mason set up Ish Ordonez' 44-yard field goal with seven seconds to play and gave 13th-ranked Arkansas a come-from-behind 16-13 victory Saturday night over winless Texas Christian. Linebacker Mike Massey picked off Kevin Haney off- balance pass and returned it 30 yards for a touchdown that pulled Arkansas to within one point, 13-12, midway through the final period. Arkansas disdained the two-point conversion try and tied it on Ordonez' extra- point kick. Two 53-yard punts by TCU's Cameron Young kept the Razorbacks in poor field position after that, but Scanlon dropped back from his own 18 with 2:31 remaining and found Mason alone at midfield a step behind two TCU defenders. The slashing running of senior Craig Richardson led the Horned Frogs in their valiant upset bid. He gained a careerhigh 110 yards in 20 carries.

The Razorbacks took the opening kickoff and moved to the TCU 41 on a pair of first downs and Scanlon's 9- yard pass to Gary Stiggers, who finished the day with six receptions for 55 yards.
