Tiger Stadium, Baton Rouge, LouisianaTV Schedule:
No. 9 LSU and Leonard Fournette look to bounce back from last week’s loss to Alabama by hosting Arkansas. The Tigers find themselves a half-game back of the Crimson Tide in the race for the SEC West title while the Razorbacks are looking for their first four-game winning streak since 2011.
Players to watch
- In last week’s win over Ole Miss, Alex Collins joined Darren McFadden and Herschel Walker as the only SEC running backs to rush for 1,000-plus yards in each of their first three seasons. The Razorbacks junior has 12 touchdowns this season.
- Fournette looks to rejuvenate his Heisman hopes after last week’s disappointing 31-yard rushing performance. The nation’s leading rusher is three rushing touchdowns shy of tying the Tigers’ single-season record (19, LaBrandon Toefield in 2001).
- Arkansas has scored 50-plus points in its last three games for the first time since 1916.
- The Razorbacks have won three of their last six games against ranked opponents.
- Arkansas quarterback Brandon Allen has thrown 11 touchdowns over the last three games and is now eight touchdowns away from setting a new school record (Ryan Mallet, 62).
- The Razorbacks offense has gone 26 consecutive possessions in regulation without a three-and-out.
- LSU is 27-2 following a loss under head coach Les Miles.
- The Tigers are 11-1 when Fournette rushes for 100 yards.
- LSU has allowed a meager 10 first quarter points and is outscoring opponents 63-10 in that frame.
- The Tigers are 61-0 under Miles when rushing for 100 yards and holding opponents under that mark.
- LSU’s Trent Domingue is one of the country’s two perfect field goal kickers this season (10-for-10).
- LSU fullback John David Moore is out for the season after re-injuring his knee last weekend.
