The streak is over: Arkansas upsets Mississippi State, ends 20-game SEC skid
The streak is over, Arkansas has finally won a conference game.
It’s been 1,071 days since the Razorbacks can say that but it happened on Saturday night as Sam Pittman’s team went on the road and beat Mississippi State 21-14.
The previous SEC win for Arkansas came all the way back on Oct 28, 2017 — the Razorbacks beat Ole Miss in Oxford that day.
The Razorbacks won thanks in large part to an outstanding showing from Barry Odom’s defense. Arkansas intercepted K.J. Costello three times, one for a Pick 6 and “limited” Mississippi State to 313 passing yards.
That’s still a high number but nothing close to the 623 passing yards the Bulldogs put up on LSU last weekend.
After the win, Arkansas was happy to finally celebrate a win in conference play.

THE STREAK IS DEAD.
Arkansas beats RANKED Miss State on the road, without Boyd, Burks, Brown, and so many others.
