Challenges for LSU

LSU was humbled at home on Saturday by a very good Alabama team, a team that may be better than any college team from the past 25 years. The Tigers can’t afford to let this one loss turn into two losses. Chad Morris, a respected, seasoned head coach and offensive guru, has had two weeks to get ready for the Tigers. You lose to Alabama, you join a large club, you lose to Arkansas and you may miss out on a New Year’s bowl game.

Challenges for Arkansas

The Hogs appeared to be making progress after nearly being Ole Miss and then shutting out Tulsa. Then Vandy rolled into town brought them back to earth. With two weeks to prepare and get healed up, Arkansas might be able to make things interesting against a disheartened LSU squad.

Saturday’s game kicks off at 6:30 pm CT and can be seen on the SEC Network.
