Well, this is it. Friday's road trip to the LSU Tigers is the Arkansas Razorbacks' last chance to avoid not winning a single SEC game, which would be a first in the program's history.

The Battle for the Golden Boot is usually a close-fought rivalry, but it's going to take a near-perfect game for the Razorbacks to even have a chance.

LSU is coming off a 34-10 drubbing of the Johnny Manziel-led Texas A&M Aggies in Death Valley. The Tigers shut down Manziel and the Aggie offense, holding them to just 299 yards of total offense. The Razorbacks on the other hand lost a heartbreaker, 24-17, to Mississippi State in Little Rock, despite playing much better football than they had been.

This game has a lot more meaning for LSU, which can improve its bowl status with a win. It has some meaning for Arkansas, too, which would love to avoid capping off a disastrous 2013 campaign with a history-making loss.

And of course, every time the Hogs and Tigers meet there is meaning because it's a border state rivalry and a series that has seen 58 meetings between the two programs dating back to 1901. Even if one of the teams has had a miserable season, such as Arkansas, it can be somewhat salvaged by lifting the 100-pound Golden Boot trophy. 

Here's everything you will need to know for Friday's gridiron matchup.
