MISSISSIPPI STATE 45, ARKANSAS 14:
Hogs (4-7) play giveaway in worst loss to Bulldogs
Arkansas Coach John L. Smith (left) reacts as Mississippi State’s Darius Slay (9) intercepts a fourth-quarter pass from Tyler Wilson intended for Cobi Hamilton (11). Slay’s 15-yard return was nullified by a Mississippi State personal foul, but Nick Griffin scored on a 60-yard run on the next play, giving the Bulldogs a 45-14 lead.
Arkansas didn’t put up much of a fight with its postseason hopes on the line Saturday.
