Lock, Witter help Missouri earn late win over Arkansas

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP)   Tucker McCann made a 19-yard field goal with five seconds remaining, and Missouri extended its winning streak to six straight games with a 48-45 victory over Arkansas on Friday.

The win caps a remarkable turnaround from a 1-5 start to the season for the Tigers (7-5, 4-4 Southeastern Conference), who were led by quarterback Drew Lock's 448 yards passing and five touchdown passes.

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. The previous record was 40 and set in 2007 by Kentucky quarterback Andre Woodson.

Ish Witter rushed 39 times for 170 yards and a touchdown for Missouri, and J'Mon Moore added 10 catches for 160 yards.

David Williams accounted for three touchdowns for the Razorbacks (4-8, 1-7), who fell to 29-34 overall and 11-29 in the SEC under fifth-year coach Bret Bielema. Austin Allen was 14-of-29 passing for 313 yards and a pair of touchdowns in his final collegiate game.
