SEC Football Schedule, Week 12: Arkansas Outlasts Mississippi State In Double-OT, 38-31

After Mississippi State erased a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter to send the game to overtime, the Razorbacks and Bulldogs traded fruitless possessions in the first extra period. MSU’s Vick Ballard rushed all the way down to the Arkansas 1 before fumbling the ball out of the end zone for a touchback; Arkansas then stalled at the MSU 21 and watched Zack Hocker miss a 38-yard field goal wide left.

In the second set of OT possessions, Arkansas went first and moved swiftly down the field, with the drive culminating in a 7-yard TD pass from Ryan Mallett to a wide-open Knile Davis. Mississippi State moved down to the Arkansas 12 on their ensuing possession but stalled at 4th-and-7, and Chris Relf was sacked on the final play to seal the win for the Razorbacks.

Now 9-2, Arkansas has an outside chance at an at-large BCS berth if they can upset LSU in Fayetteville next week.
