Possibly, but I don't know that it matters in the context of Notre Dame's fate in terms of a BCS bid anyway. Arkansas was seen as having little to no chance of passing Michigan or USC to get into the championship game given that they beat Florida next week.

Notre Dame will most assuredly get a BCS bid. As long as they win 9 games and finish in the top 12 they are eligible for a bid and since they have 10 wins they are almost assured of a bid unless USC plasters them to the point where they would be voted out of the top 10.

Arkansas losing helps them in the sense that there is one less one loss team jockeying for position in the BCS but I doubt Notre Dame has too terribly much to worry about as the BCS bowls want Notre Dame in their game as they are still a huge TV draw.
