Arkansas comes up short against LSU

We were yelling our heads off at my house when raced out to a 14-0 lead, and we were excited in the 3rd quarter when the razorbacks intercepted a pass at the ten and then followed that up with a 60 yard gain a few plays later with a chance to tie the score. However, LSU rose up and stopped us inside the 10 and we had to settle for a field goal.

Still a great year and it was super to be in the national championship conversation this late in the year. Our only two losses have to the two best teams in the nation. That reminds me of 2006 when we finished 10-4 and our four losses came to teams who finished in the top 5 (USC, LSU, Wisconsin, and Florida).

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP)—Tyrann Mathieu returned a punt 92 yards for a score, LSU punished third-rankedArkansas with 286 yards rushing, and the top-ranked Tigers secured a spot in the SEC championship game with a 41-17 victory Friday.

Kenny HilliardSpencer Ware and Jordan Jefferson all scored on the ground for LSU (12-0, 8-0 SEC), which is 12-0 for the first time and will play No. 13Georgia next weekend in Atlanta.

A win over the Bulldogs would assure the Tigers their third trip to the BCS title game in nine seasons. Though at this point, LSU might be able to get there even if it loses.

Arkansas took a surprising 14-0 lead on Tyler Wilson’s TD pass to Jarius Wright and Alonzo Highsmith’s 47-yard fumble return, but LSU stormed back by scoring 41 of the next 44 points in the game.
