Arkansas fires former Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema

Arkansas fires former Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema

Arkansas played like one at the end of a lost season. It fired him right after the 48-45 loss in Fayetteville.

Four Arkansas opponents piled up 500 or more yards this season: 501 by Texas A&M, Auburn's 629 yards, 566 yards by Ole Miss and Missouri's big game on Friday.

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. Still, the Tigers were able to edge out Arkansas in large part thanks to a highlight-reel 24-yard catch by J'Mon Moore with 8:14 remaining in the game.

The Arkansas Razorbacks will fire head football coach Bret Bielema at a press conference tonight, according to Thomas Murphy of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

"I've never been let go of in my entire life, so this is a first for me", Bielema said while holding back tears several times. Bielema ends his tenure with the Razorbacks with an overall record of 29-34 overall, including 11-29 in the ultra-competitive SEC. The Missouri offense entered Friday scoring 40 or more points in each of its last seven games, a stretch in which Lock had thrown three or more touchdowns in each.

Witter's 39 carries were a career best, topping the 31 he had against Tennessee two weeks ago and giving the senior 992 rushing yards for the season - well within reach of his first 1,000-yard rushing season heading into a bowl game.

Missouri waits to find out its bowl destination.
