    Arkansas beats Miss State in double OT 38-31

    It seemed to me that Arkansas could have turned on the jets and score every time they had the ball but it looked like they were working on their preseason running game. Once they got behind they cut Mallet loose and they scored two quick TD’s to take the lead. Then they ran about 12 out of 15 plays allowing Miss State to tie the game. Even on third and seven where a first down would have ended the game, they handed off and Knile Davis fumbled allowing the Bulldogs to tie. In overtime after Miss State fumbled their turn, Arkansas never threw the ball and they missed a long field goal. You would have thought Mallet was a true freshman the way they called plays. In the second overtime they allowed Mallet to throw and two passes later they had a touchdown and the eventual victory after the Bulldogs failed to score. This is the reason Arkansas loses so many leads late in games on the road as coach Petrino plays not to lose instead of trusting his team to win.
