Arkansas beats Mississippi State 42-21

By Jeff Shepard – bio | email

LITTLE ROCK, AR (AP) - Ryan Mallett threw for 313 yards and five touchdowns to lead Arkansas over Mississippi State 42-21 on Saturday.

Mallett's final touchdown pass was his 28th of the season, a school record. Clint Stoerner held the old mark of 26.

Anthony Dixon rushed for 176 yards for Mississippi State, which was eliminated from bowl contention.

The Bulldogs (4-7, 2-5 Southeastern Conference) ran all over the Razorbacks (7-4, 3-4) in the third quarter, cutting the Arkansas lead to 28-21 after Dixon's 70-yard scoring run. Mississippi State had the ball near midfield toward the end of the period, but Dixon fumbled and Elton Ford recovered for the Razorbacks.

Mallett threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Greg Childs to make it 35-21 early in the fourth.
