FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — After a 58-42 victory at Mississippi State, Arkansas remained No. 7 in the latest SEC Country Power Poll.
The Hogs (7-4, 3-4 SEC) dropped from No. 5 to No. 7 in last week’s poll. The poll consists of 23 media members from SEC Country and around the nation.
Arkansas did not reenter the AP Poll or coaches’ poll, but received 10 votes in each. The Hogs have been out of both polls since a 56-3 loss at Auburn last month. The College Football Playoff rankings, which Arkansas was not in last week, will be released Tuesday.
Saturday was Arkansas’ first win over Mississippi State (4-7, 2-5) since 2011. The Hogs had lost each of the previous three games in the series by seven points or less.
The victory was led by the Razorbacks’ best offensive output of the season. They amassed 661 total yards — 357 rushing and 304 passing — and the 58 points is a program record in regulation against a SEC opponent.
Arkansas will close out the regular season at Missouri (3-8, 1-6) on Friday (2:30 p.m. ET, CBS). The Tigers were defeated 63-37 at Tennessee on Saturday and are No. 14 in the SEC Country Poll.
The Razorbacks opened as a 7½-point favorite over the Tigers. It’s the first time this season Arkansas has been a favorite against a SEC opponent.
Check back next Sunday to see where Arkansas stands in the Week 13 SEC Country Power Poll.
