• Scott pinned seven of his eight punts inside the Razorbacks 20-yard line, including six that were downed at the 15-yard line or better.
• He is averaging 46.7 yards per punt this season, ranking him fourth nationally and first in the SEC
• Scott has placed 12 of his 19 punts (63.2 percent) inside the 20 while allowing just two punts to be returned all season for a total of eight yards
• He has averaged 47.5 yards per punt (14) in the last two games with 10 placed inside the 20-yard line.
