Challenges for LSU

LSU lost a heartbreaker last game at Alabama. You have to tip your hat to the Tiger players and Ed Orgeron for fighting tooth and nail until the final horn. Now LSU must put behind them the anguish of losing a close one to the defending national champions. To stop Arkansas you have to stop the Razorback running attack. The Hogs are fourth nationally and No. 1 in the SEC running the ball. Quarterback K.J. Jefferson is the Tiger’s leading rusher, averaging 5.2 yards per carry. Arkansas has a large stable of running backs with five different players that have run for 300 or more yards this season. The Tigers have to slow that running game down and force some passing.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 6:30 PM CT (7:30 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the SEC Network.
