Highlights from Bret Bielema’s post-game presser following Arkansas’ 21-20 win over Louisiana Tech in Fayetteville:

Bielema commented on the disappointment of squeaking out a close win in what many considered a favorable matchup.

The Razorbacks faced a 20-14 deficit in the fourth quarter before rallying for the win. Bielema joked that the Razorbacks wanted to keep their fans in the stadium for the entire game.

Bielema credited his team’s resiliency and maturation process. He said wasn’t sure if his past three teams would have been able to mount the comeback.

Bielema’s teams have used a run-heavy scheme. Despite rushing 40 times, the coach said he intended to take more attempts, especially with freshman Devwah Whaley, who was limited to just two carries for one yard.

Bielema said Jeremy Sprinkle’s game-winning touchdown was a “pure gut” feeling, yet was still impressed with the result.

Bielema credited Louisiana Tech’s defense for pressuring quarterback Austin Allen, who made his first career start on Saturday.

Bielema credited his own offensive line as well for a strong effort in Saturday’s win.

However, he was less impressed by his defense, who allowed a 40 percent third down efficiency.

Bielema also said he didn’t know the extent of three players who were injured on Saturday.
