OT: Hogs Clinch SEC West Title

The fifth-ranked Arkansas Razorbacks (10-1) clinched the SEC Western Division Title this afternoon with a 28-14 victory over Mississippi State (3-8) in Starkville, Mississippi. The 14-point spread is somewhat deceiving because Mississippi State played a great game. They held one of the best running tandems in college football to just 139 yards.

Defense and special teams made the difference as Chris Houston intercepted a pass in the first quarter and ran 87 yards for a TD. Also in the first quarter Darren McFadden returned a kickoff 92 yards for another TD. Arkansas' other touchdowns came on Casey Dick passes, a 29-yarder to Damian Williams in the second quarter and a 35-yarder to Marcus Monk in the third quarter.

Next Friday at 1:30 pm CST, Arkansas hosts LSU at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock. The game will be televised on CBS.
