The Bulldogs (8-0, 5-0 SEC) remain undefeated on the season after two close
calls against some of the SEC’s weaker teams. Mississippi State, which is the
No. 1 team in the first ever College Football Playoff rankings, earned a tough
45-31 road win over Kentucky last week before narrowly beating the Razorbacks,
with Will Redmond’s interception in his own end zone with 15 seconds remaining
preserving the win on Saturday.
Arkansas (4-5, 0-5), meanwhile, continues to search for its first conference

haven’t won in conference since a home victory over Kentucky on Oct. 13, 2012.
Brandon Allen threw for 238 yards with an interception and Alex Collins rushed
for 93 yards with a score in the setback.
