Bret Bielema fired within an hour of Arkansas' season-ending loss

In the end, his team got five seconds after a Missouri field goal in which it fielded a squib kick and threw an incomplete pass before losing, 48-45. "You dream about that as a quarterback ..."

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

Lock's third touchdown pass - a 10-yard pass to Albert Okwuegbunam - broke the SEC single-season record and tied the game at 28-28.

"I was actually thinking about it a couple of days ago, I'm playing with one of the best quarterbacks in history, not only for Mizzou or the SEC, but in general", Missouri wide receiver Emanual Hall said. 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. He had the final five rushes for the Tigers to set up McCann's game-winning kick.

Bielema won the Big Ten three times as coach at Wisconsin. 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. That came after blowout losses to South Carolina, Purdue, Auburn and Georgia during their 1-5 start to the season.

It was a back-and-forth game.

Missouri played like a team that had qualified for a bowl the week before.
