FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., Sept. 2 (UPI) -- Chris Gragg scored two touchdowns on eight catches Saturday and 10th-ranked Arkansas rolled over Jacksonville State 49-24.

Gragg picked up 127 yards, while Tyler Wilson completed 16-of-20 passes for 248 yards and two scores as the Razorbacks (1-0) won in their first game under new Coach John L. Smith.

Smith replaced Bobby Petrino, who was fired in April following a scandal involving a female athletic department employee.

Knile Davis compiled 69 rushing yards on 15 carries in his first game back after missing the entire 2011 season with a broken ankle.

The Gamecocks (0-1) were led by Marques Ivory, who completed 14-of-26 passes for 160 yards and two touchdowns.

Alan Bonner compiled 107 yards and a touchdown on eight receptions for Jacksonville State.
