Upset alert: Can Arkansas beat LSU?
Arkansas at LSU, 7:15 p.m. ET, ESPN — LSU is a 7-point favorite entering the game, so Arkansas is a medium-sized underdog.
The Tigers should be ready, playing in Death Valley with winning the SEC West title and receiving a College Football Playoff berth possible. The Razorbacks are riding three straight wins, including an overtime thriller last week against Ole Miss while LSU comes into the game after a disappointing lose at Alabama.
The Tigers defense was dismantled by Derrick Henry, who dashed for 210 yards and three touchdowns. Arkansas’ Brandon Allen is one of the best QBs in the SEC, but the Razorbacks prefer to give the ball to RB Alex Collins, who rushed for more than 100 yards in all but two games this season.
Now that LSU has finally shown a weakness, Arkansas may try to exploit it. The Razorbacks should put up a solid fight.
