SEC Football Scores, Week 12: Arkansas, MSU Headed To OT; Tennessee Toying With Vandy

Arkansas Razorbacks at Mississippi State Bulldogs: Arkansas grabbed a 10-point lead with two touchdowns in the second half — the first an 88-yard catch-and-run from Ryan Mallett to Jarius Wright late in the third quarter, the other a 1-yard Knile Davis rush — but Mississippi State answered with a Vick Ballard touchdown run late in the fourth, and then Derek DiPasquale tied the game with a 25-yard field goal with four seconds left in regulation. Mississippi State gets the ball first in overtime.

Tennessee Volunteers at Vanderbilt Commodores: Tennessee took a 14-3 lead into halftime and hasn’t done much since, but fortunately for the Vols, Vanderbilt hasn’t either. The Commodores have started drives at the Tennessee 20 (after a fumble) and the Vandy 47 (after Tyler Bray’s second interception of the game) but had nothing to show for it; Vandy’s evening can be pretty well summed up by a fourth-quarter sequence in which VU appeared to score a touchdown but had it called back due to an illegal touching penalty — and then tossed an interception to Tennessee’s Janzen Jackson just a few plays later. If the Vols hold on, it won’t be a pretty win, but they’ll take it, particularly considering that it’ll bring them within one win of bowl eligibility after a painful 2-6 start.
