Arkansas Razorbacks vs LSU Tigers 11/23/2019
After starting the 2019-2020 season with a 2-1 win-loss mark, Arkansas went on a seven-game losing skid, highlighted by 41-point losses against No5 Alabama (7-48) and No15 Auburn (10-51). Their last game against the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers saw the Arkansas Razorbacks allow 31 unanswered points between the first and third quarters en route to a 19-45 setback. Quarterbacks KJ Jefferson and John Stephen Jones were miserable in playcalling as the duo combined for nine completions in 25 attempts for a measly 87 passing yards and two interceptions. The lone bright spot for the Razorbacks was running back Rakeem Boyd, who ran for 185 yards and recorded two touchdowns against the Hilltoppers.

The Ed Orgeron-mentored Tigers are a win away from clinching the SEC West championship and the Razorbacks are the only team standing in the way of snaring the coveted title and keep their top ranking intact. In their first nine matches, LSU ran through SEC gauntlet and defeated three Top 25 teams in No11 Florida, No15 Auburn and No5 Alabama. As a team, they averaged 47.8 points, which is 23rd-best in the tournament, and allowed 23.8. But what stands out in the Tigers’ rampage to the SEC West mountain is their passing ability, norming 390.3 yards per game, which is No2 in the league. In their 58-37 win against Ole Miss, quarterback Joe Burrow completed 32 passes out of 42 attempts, threw for 489 yards and recorded five touchdowns.
