Football defeats Arkansas in Fayetteville, 24-17
Nothing was pretty about Saturday’s win over Arkansas, but nonetheless the Tigers leave frigid Fayetteville adding to the win column.
Coming off the worst offensive performance of the year vs. Alabama, Burrow and company didn’t do much to impress vs. a below average Razorback defense either. The only positive, however, was LSU’s running game with Nick Brossette, who rushed for 90 yards and a touchdown.
Up 24-3 in the third quarter, Arkansas scored 14 unanswered points to make it a one score game late in the fourth. But, Burrow and the offense put the nail in the coffin, running out the last 5:27 on a 58-yard drive to claim victory. Nick Brossette could have scored twice on the final drive, but slid before the goal line to run out the clock.
Burrow went 15-for-21 for 195 yards and a touchdown.
Jefferson caught six passes for 117 yards and a touchdown.
“I feel like we came out and were dominant, but I don’t feel like we finished it,” said Devin White.
Next, the Tigers return home and host Rice in Tiger Stadium at 6:30. The game will be televised by ESPNU.
