LITTLE ROCK, Ark. Kolton Browning spent most of the night throwing — but he ended the game by running.

Browning’s 16-yard touchdown run on fourth and 1 gave Louisiana-Monroe a 34-31 overtime win over No. 8 Arkansas on Saturday. It was the Warhawks’ first win over a Southeastern Conference team since defeating Alabama in 2007.
Browning was 42 of 67 passing for 412 yards and three touchdowns, and he had 69 yards rushing in 16 carries — his last the winding, game-winning scramble in overtime around and through the Arkansas defense.
The Razorbacks played the second half without quarterback Tyler Wilson, who suffered a head injury after taking several big hits in the first half. Wilson, who missed the second half against New Mexico last season because of concussion-like symptoms, threw for two touchdowns before leaving the game at halftime.
The Razorbacks led 28-7 midway through the third quarter after freshman quarterback Brandon Allen connected with MeKale McKay for a 13-yard touchdown.
Louisiana-Monroe tied the game when Browning hit Brent Leonard on a 23-yard touchdown pass on fourth and 10 with 55 seconds remaining in regulation.
Arkansas took a 34-31 lead in overtime on a 37-yard field goal by Zach Hocker.
