The Arkansas Razorbacks return home this week to face the LSU Tigers in the annual Battle for the Boot.
The Razorbacks are out of bowl contention and are playing for the pride of their team and their fans that endured a season of hardships that began when former head coach Bobby Petrino wrecked his motorcycle and his team’s chances at a national title last spring.
Seniors Tyler Wilson, Cobi Hamilton and Dennis Johnson will be playing their last college game in a Razorbacks uniform. Emotions will be running high.
Razorback Nation will be hoping for a result similar to the trophy game in 2007 when unranked Arkansas upset No. 1 LSU 50-48 in Baton Rouge.
LSU is out of the national championship picture but still has hopes of winning an SEC title if a few other results in the conference this week go its way.
Here is the complete game preview to the Battle for the Boot.
