Tyler Wilson and Jarius Wright shattered school records for passing and receiving, and Broderick Green ran 3 yards for the go-ahead touchdown with 1:41 left as No. 18 Arkansas gave No. 14 Texas A&M a rude preview of what it can expect from the SEC next season in a 42-38 victory Saturday.

The Razorbacks (5-1) trailed by 18 at halftime, and hadn't led before Green squeezed through the left side of the line.

This makes two straight weeks the Aggies (2-2) have thrown away a huge halftime lead. They were up by 17 at home against Oklahoma State last week.

Wilson was 30 of 51 for 510 yards and three touchdowns, and ran for a 2-point conversion that tied the game at 35.

Wright caught 13 passes for 281 yards and two touchdowns. He also made a head's up recovery of a loose ball rolling into the end zone on the touchdown capped by Wilson's conversion.

Christine Michael ran for 230 yards and three touchdowns for A&M, but was stuffed on a fourth down to end his team's last chance.
