Bielema Walks Out with Class

Missouri waits to find out its bowl destination. Neither team had much in the way of stakes, and both of its fates past Saturday seemed sealed even at kickoff: The Tigers will make their first bowl game since 2015, and the Razorbacks will embark on a coaching search.

This game was really the start of the collapse for Bielema at Arkansas. After Arkansas tied it with a field goal, the Tigers regained the lead on tucker McCann's boot with five seconds left. The Razorbacks are coming off one of the worst seasons in recent memory under Bret Bielema and after yet another underachieving season, the program has chose to go in a new direction.

Lock completed 25 of 42 passes and threw his 43rd touchdown pass of the season to set the SEC's single-season record for touchdown passes in the win. In a first half shootout with the Razorbacks, Lock found wide receiver Emanuel Hall for the other two touchdowns. He never won more than eight games in a season and only had a winning conference record one time.

Jose Mourinho admits Marouane Fellaini could leave next summer
Mr Mill said in January Mr Robson had asked: "Is the fit feel of the boots good?" - and Fellaini had replied: "Perfect for the boots".

After a tough loss to Missouri to end the season on Friday evening, the university chose to cut ties with the head coach, according to reports.

Ish Witter rushed 39 times for 170 yards and a touchdown for Missouri, and J'Mon Moore added 10 catches for 160 yards. Sure, Arkansas dealt with a rash of injuries this season, but no matter the attrition, it didn't play up to expectations under Bielema this year-or in recent ones.
