Russell leads Mississippi St. past Arkansas 45-14

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) -- Tyler Russell threw for 274 yards and
four touchdowns to lead Mississippi State to a 45-14 victory
over Arkansas on Saturday.

The win snaps a three-game losing streak for the Bulldogs (8-3,
4-3 Southeastern Conference). It also ends a three-game losing
streak against the Razorbacks.

Arkansas (4-7, 2-5) turned the ball over five times, failing to
capitalize such on its 359 yards of total offense.

Russell completed 19 of 32 passes, including a 13-yard touchdown
pass to LaDarius Perkins on the game's opening drive. Perkins
finished with 131 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns.

It wasn't all pretty for the Bulldogs early, though. Tyler
Wilson and the Arkansas offense moved the ball with ease on
their first two possessions, and after back-to-back touchdown
passes to Cobi Hamilton and Dennis Johnson, the Razorbacks led

Wilson finished the game 23 of 29 for 225 yards with two
touchdowns and two interceptions.

Arkansas held the momentum until a botched punt reception with
10 minutes left in the first half led to a Mississippi State
field goal. After a defensive stop, the Bulldogs drove 78 yards
in five plays and Russell hit Chad Bumphis for his SEC-leading
ninth touchdown, giving the Bulldogs a 17-14 lead at the half.

Bumphis finished with 6 catches, two for touchdowns, setting a
single-season school record.

In the third quarter, Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen
gambled on a fourth-and-one inside the Arkansas 5-yard line, and
backup quarterback Dak Prescott ran it in for a touchdown to put
the Bulldogs up 24-14.

Arkansas's offense continued to struggle in the second half. The
Hogs failed on a fourth down conversion in Bulldog territory
late in the third quarter and then, after forcing a
three-and-out, fumbled their first play from scrimmage. Two
plays later, Russell hit Perkins again for a 24-yard score.

After another Arkansas turnover, Russell hit Bumphis for another
score to start the fourth quarter. Three minutes later, after a
Darius Slay interception, Nick Griffin broke a 60-yard touchdown
run to give the Bulldogs its final margin of victory.

The Bulldogs finished with 505 yards of total offense, 302
through the air. Arceto Clark and Perkins caught 3 passes each.

For Arkansas, Johnson led the team with 88 yards rushing.
Hamilton finished with 7 catches, also for 88 yards. Javontee
Herndon caught 6 passes for 84 yards.
