FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (WTVA/AP) - Alex Collins and Jonathan Williams combined to rush for 231 yards as Arkansas overcame an injury to starting quarterback Brandon Allen to defeat Southern Miss 24-3.

Allen injured his right shoulder on a 5-yard touchdown run in the first quarter on Saturday. The sophomore, who took over as the starter this season for Tyler Wilson, went for X-rays following the run and was replaced by junior AJ Derby.

Williams had 116 yard rushing while Collins had 115 for the Razorbacks (3-0). Collins became the first freshman in Southeastern Conference history to top the 100-yard mark in his first three games, the first player overall since Oklahoma's Adrian Peterson in 2004.

Jalen Richard rushed for 94 yards in the losing effort.

The loss was the 15th straight for the Golden Eagles (0-3), the longest active losing streak in the country.
