Here are some quick thoughts from Arkansas’ 21-14 loss to No. 17 Missouri:

What it means: Arkansas wasted too many opportunities on the offensive side of the ball. The Razorbacks controlled the majority of the game, but Missouri put together two long scoring drives in the fourth quarter to ice the game. The Tigers won the time of possession battle, leaving the Hogs’ defense on the field for nearly 80 snaps. Robb Smith’s defense looked gassed late in the final period leaving Maty Mauk, Marcus Murphy and company a chance to steal the game.

What I liked: Special teams play. Arkansas blocked a field goal, converted on a fake punt and pinned the Tigers back deep a couple times. The Hogs put themselves in good positions due to special teams, but failed to convert with the extra opportunities.

Who’s the man: Trey Flowers. The senior played lights out on defense, harassing Maty Mauk all afternoon, batting down passes and forcing fumbles. Missouri had trouble blocking Flowers off the edge in the first half, as he continued his torrid pace.

Key play: An Alex Collins fumble late in the fourth quarter sealed the game for the Tigers. On a drive in which the Razorbacks abandoned the run, Markus Golden forced a fumble on a Collins draw and ripped the football away from the Arkansas tailback. Officials ruled Collins down on the field, but the play was reviewed and overturned, icing the game for the Tigers.

What’s next: Arkansas awaits its bowl destination as a 6-6 team.
