FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) _ Quarterbacks Matt Jones and Zak Clark are competitors, but most of all they are Arkansas teammates. After Jones threw a critical interception that put Mississippi State in position to win, he headed for the sideline with his head down. ``Zak came over to me and told me to keep my head up and make something happen,'' Jones said. ``That really helped a lot.'' Jones made up for the interception by running 43 yards on a draw play to set up Cedric Cobbs' third touchdown with 1:20 to play as Arkansas beat Mississippi State 24-21 on Saturday. Down 10 midway through the fourth quarter, Mississippi State (2-7, 1-6 SEC) took the lead on Kevin Fant's 20-yard pass to Justin Jenkins, and Dicenzo Miller's 25-yard touchdown run. Miller's score, with 2:07 to play, came three plays after Josh Morgan intercepted Jones' forced pass on third-and-18. From the Arkansas 25, Jones _ who ran 45 yards to set up a touchdown and completed a 61-yard pass that led to a field goal _ got loose on the draw to the Mississippi State 32. ``Their quarterback made the biggest play of the game with the long run at the end,'' said Mississippi State coach Jackie Sherrill. ``We missed enough tackles to last an entire year. The defense gave us a chance to win at the end with the interception, but we can't let them make a play like that run.'' Jones said Cobbs blocked a blitzer and there was nobody in the middle of the field. ``After that, all I had to do was run,'' said Jones, who added that he was surprised he went back in after the interception. Winded, he was relieved by Clark, who completed an 8-yard pass to George Wilson and a 9-yarder to Decori Birmingham, who broke a tackle. ``Matt Jones is a threat every time he touches the ball, but let me tell you, it took two quarterbacks to win the game,'' said Arkansas coach Houston Nutt. ``Zak came in and pulled out the victory.'' Jones returned and handed the ball to Cobbs, who scored from the 15 as the Razorbacks (7-3, 4-3 SEC) recorded their sixth straight victory and moved into position for their fourth consecutive bowl under Nutt. The Bulldogs did little until Fant, making his first start, found Jenkins with a perfect throw on a deep corner route with 5:07 to play. After a holding penalty, Morgan intercepted Jones. Morgan also returned a fumble 23 yards for the Bulldogs' first touchdown. ``The first thing I thought about was the seniors,'' Nutt said. ``I couldn't look them in the eyes. I had to come up with something to get the ball in the end zone.''
