The Razorbacks dropped the regular season finale 29-27 to the Missouri Tigers, falling to 6-6 on the season. Here is how it happened:

First quarter

9:34 - The Razorback defense continues to bend rather than break, but the Tigers strike first on Harrison Mevis' 40-yard field goal.

5:26 - Arkansas responds with a nine-play, 75-yard touchdown drive. KJ Jefferson scores on a quarterback keeper, and Cam Little's extra point makes it 7-3.

2:56 - Missouri needs just 2 1/2 minutes to respond, marching 75 yards in seven plays to retake the lead. Running back Cody Schrader punches it in from 3 yards out.

Second quarter

14:56 - Missouri quarterback Brady Cook sees Jefferson's rushing touchdown and raises him 6 yards. The Tiger lead is 10 points.

9:26 - Matt Landers wins a 50-50 ball in the end zone for a 27-yard touchdown, capping off the second 75-yard scoring drive of the day.

5:26 - The Razorback defense stiffens up after a 37-yard Cook rush, holding the Tigers to their second field goal of the day, a 27-yarder to make it 20-14.

1:35 -Jefferson completes to Rocket Sanders on a wheel route for an 8-yard touchdown. Little puts the Hogs ahead with the PAT.

Third quarter

10:09 - With the aid of a fourth down conversion, the Tigers mount their third touchdown drive of the afternoon. Wide receiver Luther Burden breaks a Quincey McAdoo tackle and takes it 23 yards to the house. The two-point try fails, so the margin remains at five points.

8:51 - Jefferson halfheartedly throws it away on third-and-15, and Daylan Carnell picks it off. First down Missouri at the Arkansas 29.

5:32 - The Tigers cash in on the interception, but the Razorbacks hold them to a 29-yard field goal. The Hogs still trail by one possession.

1:43 - Little cuts the deficit back to five points with a 46-yard field goal to cap off a 10-play drive.

Fourth quarter

12:43 - Arkansas fails to finish the drive with a touchdown after a first-and-goal from the 2-yard line. Little connects on another field goal to make it a two-point game.

6:26 - Missouri deflects Reid Bauer's punt from deep in Arkansas territory and takes over at the Hogs' 35-yard line.

4:15 - Once again, the Razorbacks hold Missouri to a field goal attempt, but Mevis' 55-yard kick is wide right. First down Arkansas at the 37-yard line.

0:00 - The Hogs fail to execute a hook-and-lateral miracle at the end of the game, and they fall 29-27 to the Tigers.
