Alex Collins ran for three touchdowns and Jefferson City native Kody Walker added another score as Arkansas dominated Missouri 28-3 on Friday. The Tigers drop to 5-7 on the year, making it likely Missouri will miss out on a bowl game for the first time since 2012.
The loss marks a disappointing end for Gary Pinkel, who coached his last regular season game. Pinkel announced he will step down at the end of the season due to health reasons. He leaves Missouri with 118 wins, the most in school history.
Arkansas had 208 yards on the ground, 130 of those came from Alex Collins. Mizzou allowed Collins to score three touchdowns, the most allowed they have allowed in the first half all season. Walker scored his touchdown on a 9-yard run in the third quarter.
The Razorbacks controlled the ball for more than 40 minutes. Missouri only had the ball for 19 minutes and 45 seconds.
Mizzou quarterback Drew Lock finished the day with 83 passing yards and one interception.
MU Punter Corey Fatony punted the ball eight times on Friday, setting the school’s single-season record for punts in a season (81).
There is a small chance Missouri could get a bowl invitation, even though they do not have the six wins required to be “bowl eligible.” There may not be enough six-win teams around the nation, which could open up the possibility for a bowl selecting a 5-7 team.
