STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) -- A three-game losing streak has knocked Mississippi State out of the national rankings and out of contention for a Southeastern Conference Western Division title.
The Bulldogs hope to turn things around against Arkansas.
Mississippi State (7-3, 3-3 SEC) will be favored to win when it hosts the Razorbacks (4-6, 2-4) on Saturday. The Razorbacks were considered a national championship contender at the beginning of the season, but haven't come close to those expectations.
Still, Bulldogs' coach Dan Mullen isn't expecting to host the Arkansas team that's limped through most of its schedule.
Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson has managed to have a solid season despite the disappointment that surrounds him. He's completed nearly 61 percent of his passes for 2,803 yards, 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions this season.
