Final Score: Arkansas Razorbacks 31 – #9 LSU Tigers 14

The Arkansas Razorbacks are now bowl eligible with 2 home games left in the season after winning back to back road games against ranked SEC opponents. Just let that sink in. The Razorbacks knocked off the LSU Tigers 31-14, and the game was never really that close, and get to bring the Golden Boot back to Fayetteville. The Hogs came out and dominated the entire first half until the final drive. LSU would score going into the locker room, but trailed the Hogs 21-7.

LSU would score to open the second half and cut the lead to 7 for Arkansas, but they would never get into scoring position again until late in the 4th quarter, when a DJ Dean interception in the end zone sealed the win for the Hogs. Led by a dynamic rushing attack, the Arkansas offense was just as impressive as it was last week. However, instead of a passing demonstration, Arkansas absolutely pounded the ball up the middle against the Tigers. Alex Collins, Jared Cornelius, and Kody Walker combined for over 300 yards on the ground. Brandon Allen was efficient, but not as explosive. The senior QB had 141 yards passing and 1 touchdown.

  • Alex Collins – The junior running back was apparently throwing up on the sideline at one point, and had a definite injury that plagued him in the second half. After fumbling on the opening drive, Collins turned in a fantastic performance. 16 carries, 141 yards, and 2 touchdowns. He also had his longest career touchdown run of 80 yards tonight.
  • Dominique Reed – The JUCO transfer has certainly lived up to his billing. The All-American and Camden native has EXPLODED for Arkansas down the stretch, and had an amazing 52 yard touchdown catch and run in the first quarter. Reed finished with 3 catches for 82 yards.
  • Deatrich Wise, Jr. – I don’t have the official stats, but to my knowledge, Wise had 3 sacks tonight. The Hogs only had 8 sacks coming into this game as a team. Wise and Jeremiah Ledbetter got pressure on Brandon Harris all night, and also helped contain Leonard Fournette, who was held to under 100 yards rushing for just the second time this season.

Next: Hogs Create their Own Opportunities

What an amazing game, and an amazing turnaround by Bret Bielema and the Arkansas Razorbacks. I think it’s safe to say that the early season injuries cost us HUGE against Toledo, Texas Tech, and TAMU. As Harvey put it up in the tweets, “I’m glad we played Arkansas early.” So is the rest of the SEC. Now the Hogs get 2 home games, and they have a chance to polish off a season that could go down as one of the biggest turnarounds in recent college football memory.
