NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Zach Hocker kicked a 42-yard field goal with 6:53 left, and eighth-ranked Arkansas rallied yet again to beat Vanderbilt 31-28 Saturday for the Razorbacks' fourth straight win.

This was the third time this season the Razorbacks (7-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) trailed by double digits. They didn't trail by 18 as they did against Texas A&M or 17 last week before beating Mississippi. This time, Vanderbilt led by 21-7 with 1:39 left in the first half.

The Commodores (4-4, 1-4) also had the ball at the Arkansas 5 in the fourth quarter leading 28-20 when Zac Stacy fumbled, and Jerry Franklin picked it up and ran it 94 yards for a touchdown. Tyler Wilson found Jarius Wright in the end zone for the tying 2-point conversion with 13:25 left.

Vanderbilt missed a chance to force overtime when Carey Spear's 27-yard field goal went wide right with 8 seconds left.
