A game that produces 11 scoring opportunities should expect to produce about 50 points or so. Arkansas-Toledo produced 28. If either team had been capable of turning opportunities into actual production, it would have run away with the game. Instead, Toledo won because the Rockets were less bad at finishing.
That's probably not much of a consolation for Arkansas, which both ran the ball poorly and probably didn't run the ball enough. But this all goes down as a frustrating win with one more conversion. (And I assume quarterback Brandon Allen has had nightmares about missing Hunter Henry open in the end zone in the final seconds.)
By the way, that's four straight losses for Arkansas in Little Rock. How about you sit it out for a couple of years, War Memorial Stadium?
