GAME OF THE WEEK

Mississippi State (7-3, 3-3) at Arkansas (6-4, 4-2)

Saturday, 6:00pm (CT) – ESPN

The Razorbacks head into Saturday’s game against Mississippi State riding a four game winning streak after defeating LSU 31-14 last weekend in Baton Rouge. Arkansas’ pass rush unit played a big role in the win by sacking LSU QB Brandon Harris five times. The Razorbacks will look to keep the pressure on Mississippi State QB Dak Prescott, who was sacked nine times in the Bulldogs loss to Alabama. Prescott, the 2013 AutoZone Liberty Bowl MVP, has completed 64.7 percent of his passes this season with 18 touchdowns and just two interceptions. He’s also rushed for 432 yards and seven touchdowns. Expect the Razorbacks to pound the ball with Alex Collins, who racked up 141 of the Razorbacks’ 299 yards on the ground against LSU. This will be the 26th meeting between Arkansas and Mississippi State. The Razorbacks lead the all-time series 15-9-1.
