Solomon Patton turned two short receptions into touchdowns, helping No. 18 Florida beat Arkansas 30-10 Saturday night.

The 5-foot-9 senior nicknamed “Solo” was pretty close to being a one-man show in the Swamp.

Patton finished with six catches for a career-high 124 yards. He also ran for a first down. But his longest gains went the distance and were key to Florida (4-1, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) winning its ninth consecutive game in the series and 10th in a row at home.

Tyler Murphy, making his first start at Florida Field, completed 16 of 22 passes for 240 yards and three scores _ another efficient and effective outing from a fourth-year junior who somehow couldn’t get on the field the last three years.

The Razorbacks (3-3, 0-2) ran the ball well early _ against the league’s best defense _ but fell behind on Loucheiz Purifoy’s interception return in the second quarter for a touchdown and faded from there.
