Mississippi State appears to be hitting its stride with wins in three of its last four outings heading into a Southeastern Conference matchup at Arkansas. The Bulldogs’ (5-3, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) hot streak includes wins in their last two (Vanderbilt, Kentucky) games and a victory at No. 13 Texas A&M. The only loss in the stretch was a 49-9 defeat to Alabama.

Arkansas dives back into conference play in Fayetteville coming off a rout of an overmatched FCS foe and an open date. The Razorbacks (5-3, 1-3) also have a win over Texas A&M, but are 1-3 since then. The only win was a 45-3 over Arkansas-Pine Bluff.

The Bulldogs are coming off an impressive 31-17 thumping of then-No. 12 Kentucky as quarterback Will Rogers set an SEC single-game record for completion percentage (36 of 39, 92.3 percent). He has a 75.2 completion percentage for the season and has passed for 2,890 yards, third in the FBS.

The Bulldogs managed only 94 yards against the Wildcats on 35 rushes, the most runs they have had under coach Mike Leach. Last year K.J. Costello (43 of 59) passed for 313 yards against Arkansas, but the Bulldogs lost 21-14.
