 The Arkansas Razorbacks (7-4, 3-4 SEC) and Tigers (3-8, 1-6 SEC) will be facing off for the eighth time.

• It will be the third game between the schools since Missouri joined the SEC in 2012. Missouri holds a 4-3 advantage in the all-time series.

 The Tigers won the inaugural meeting of the Battle Line Rivalry 21-14 in Columbia in 2014. The Razorbacks evened the rivalry series last season with a 28-3 victory in Fayetteville.

 With the win at Mississippi State last week, Arkansas has won 10 consecutive games following an SEC loss dating back to 2014.

 Arkansas and Missouri each recorded 300 yards passing and rushing last Saturday. The Razorbacks and Tigers are two of just three SEC schools to accomplish that feat this year.

Five Key Storylines
 After a 58-42 win at Mississippi State last Saturday, the Arkansas Razorbacks are 13-5 in their last 18 games dating back to last season, which is tied for the third-most wins in the SEC during that span.

 Arkansas has a 4-2 record (.667 win pct.) in true road games in SEC play over the last two seasons, which ranks third in the conference over that span. It is the first time Arkansas has closed the regular season with back-to-back road games since 1982.

 Sophomore running back Rawleigh Williams III reclaimed the SEC rushing lead (1,209) last Saturday night, thanks to career highs in yards (205) and TDs (4) on the ground on 16 carries, while also adding a TD pass. Williams became the first non-QB in college football this season to rush for four TDs and pass for a TD in a game. He is just the second player in Arkansas history to run for over 200 yards and four TDs and the first to do so in an SEC game.

 Junior quarterback Austin Allen threw for 303 yards and two TDs last Saturday to take over the SEC passing lead in conference games (1,943) and tie Tyler Wilson (2012) and Ryan Mallett (2009) for second in single-season school history with three 300-yard passing games against SEC opponents. The SEC’s leader in passer rating at 148.4, Allen is 196 yards shy of becoming just the fourth Arkansas QB to throw for 3,000 or more yards in a season.

 With 357 yards on the ground and 304 yards through the air last Saturday, Arkansas became one of just 16 FBS teams to rush for 300 yards and pass for 300 yards in a single game this season and is one of just five FBS teams with both a 300-yard passer and 200-yard rusher in a single game this season. Arkansas’ 661 yards of total offense was the fourth-highest output in program history and the most ever in an SEC game.
