Kelly has amassed $575,000 in bonuses this season.
LSU held Arkansas scoreless for the final 13:17 to claim its 8th victory of the season. Freshman linebacker Harold Perkins Jr. sealed the victory with a strip sack and also added 2 forced fumbles, 4 sacks and 8 tackles. Mekhi Wingo scooped up the forced fumble.
LSU limited Arkansas to 249 total yards. After the victory, Kelly declared that the best is yet to come for an LSU squad that will get a crack at No. 1 Georgia in 3 weeks.
“We are far from a finished product,” Kelly said via The Associated Press. “I don’t think anybody in that locker room thinks we have arrived.”
Next up for LSU is a home contest against UAB on Saturday. Kickoff is slated for 9 p.m. ET and will be televised on ESPN2.
The all-time series is tied at 1 between the programs, with both meetings in Baton Rouge. LSU took the last matchup 56-17 in 2013. UAB won the inaugural meeting 13-10 in 2000.
