Arkansas is still in the running in the SEC West and, in theory, the national championship hunt. The Razorbacks are playing like it today against Mississippi State, even if the halftime score, 24-10 in their favor, doesn't reflect their statistical dominance.
Tyler Wilson has thrown for 267 yards and two touchdowns, and Dennis Johnson has another 72 yards on the ground, as the Razorbacks have moved the ball at will on Mississippi State's defense. The Hogs outgained the Bulldogs, 339 yards to 106 yards, in the first half.
But Arkansas had one Zach Hocker field goal blocked thanks to Fletcher Cox, and Cox forced a Wilson fumble and returned it to the Arkansas 28 to set up the lone Mississippi State touchdown drive. That's why the lead is just a two-touchdown advantage.
