Two games are left on the schedule, and time is running out for the Arkansas Razorbacks to avoid a winless season in the SEC, something that hasn't happened to the Hogs since joining the conference.
With a trip to LSU for the final game of the year, seemingly the only way Arkansas can avoid going 0-8 in the SEC is by beating the Mississippi State Bulldogs this Saturday at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock.
The Bulldogs are currently in a tailspin themselves, losing their last three games. They played hard at home versus Alabama last week, falling 20-7. Sitting at 4-6 (1-5 SEC), head coach Dan Mullen and Mississippi State have had a very disappointing 2013 campaign.
The Razorbacks also gave a valiant effort in their last game, a 34-24 loss to Ole Miss two weeks ago in Oxford. But, good efforts don't show up in the win-loss column. It's still a loss on paper, and head coach Bret Bielema and his team know that finishing the year without a conference win is becoming a very real possibility, making this game all the more important for Arkansas.
Both teams are desperately searching for a win, so this gridiron matchup should be physical and hard fought. Here's everything you need to know about Saturday's game.
