Maxwell Football Club announced Thursday that Arkansas running back Alex Collins has been named the Maxwell Award Player of the Week for his 212-yard and two-touchdown performance at Texas Tech.

Collins rushed for 212 yards, the ninth-highest single-game total in Arkansas football history, in the Razorbacks’ 49-28 win at Texas Tech. The sophomore also rushed for two touchdowns, including an 84-yard fourth quarter score that gave Arkansas a 21-point lead and put the game out of reach.

The 212 rushing yards were the most by a Razorback since running back Darren McFadden matched the SEC single-game rushing record with 321 yards against South Carolina on Nov. 3, 2007.
This is the first time a Razorback has been recognized as the Maxwell Award Player of the Week.
