No. 3 The defense kept the Razorbacks in the game

The Hogs defense had one of their best games of the season, forcing three turnovers against LSU, including an interception in the endzone in overtime by Montaric Brown.

That was Brown’s third interception of the season and his first since he snagged one against Texas A&M in Week 4 of the college football season.

Cornerback Greg Brooks, Jr. recovered a fumble in the second quarter that gave the Hogs a big burst of momentum.

Defensive back Myles Slusher recorded his second interception of the season when he picked off LSU QB Garrett Nussmeier late in the third quarter.

The Razorback defense did everything you could have asked for and more. They never gave up any big plays and held LSU to it’s fewest points in a game since Nov. 28, 2020 when they only mustered 7 points at Texas A&M.
