#6 Arkansas routs Mississippi State 44-17

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Tyler Wilson had a school-record 32

completions as No. 6 Arkansas defeated Mississippi State 44-17.

Wilson finished 32 of 43 for 365 yards and three touchdowns.

The win is the seventh straight for the Razorbacks (10-1, 6-1

Southeastern Conference), who travel to No. 1 LSU next week for a

game with conference and national title implications.

It also clinched the first back-to-back 10-win seasons since

1988-89 for Arkansas, which completed its first undefeated season

at home since 1999.

Chris Gragg led the Razorbacks with a career-high 119 yards

receiving on eight catches. The tight end also had a 2-yard

touchdown catch in the third quarter that put Arkansas up 31-10,

and the Razorbacks outgained the Bulldogs 539-211.

All six of Mississippi State's (5-6, 1-6) losses this season

have now come against teams currently ranked in the BCS standings.

The Bulldogs were held to six three-and-outs.
