Arkansas punctuated the win with a 22-yard field goal by Jeremy Davis with 3:53 left. That sent Auburn fans scurrying for the exits. After the game, Razorbacks wideouts Chris Baker and London Crawford relieved the cheerleaders of the giant Arkansas gonfalons and circled the field with them, as McFadden cruised along the railing, slapping hands with fans. Later, outside the visitors' locker room, Parker was asked about the SEC title game. "That's the goal," he said. "That's what all the blood, sweat and tears have been for."

Just then, defensive coordinator Reggie Herring walked past the celebrating players and provided a dose of perspective: "We've still got seven games to play. Get on the bus."
