The Razorbacks finished the season with a suffocating defensive performance, beating Missouri 28-3 to close out the regular season. Arkansas surrendered only eight first downs and held Mizzou below 90 yards in both rushing and passing for the game. 

To honor a monster individual performance from defensive end Deatrich Wise, the SEC named the junior defender SEC Co-Defensive Lineman of the Week:

Via the SEC’s Week 13 Players of the Week statement:

• Now has a sack in four straight games, piling up seven over that stretch.

• Forced a fumble for the second straight game and third time this season on his first sack against Missouri.

• Leads the SEC with eight sacks in league play. • Only SEC player with at least 1.5 sacks in three straight conference games this season.

• His eight sacks on the year have all come in SEC action and are tied for 10th-most in Arkansas single-season history.

• One of two SEC players with multiple sacks in two straight conference games this season.

• Registered a sack in five of eight SEC games.
