The previous 2011 “game of the century” between No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama will be an afterthought Friday night when No. 3 Arkansas travels to Death Valley to take on No. 1 LSU. In a season full of upsets, the Razorbacks look to add one more team to the list.
Arkansas vs. LSU has quietly become one of the best SEC rivalry games and one of the best throughout college football. Since 2005 Arkansas and LSU have split their series 3-3. 21 total points separates the winning team from the losing team, with Arkansas having the largest winning margin, winning by 8 points in 2010 in Little Rock, Arkansas. That’s a 3.5 average margin of victory between the two schools.
This year’s winner not only receives the Golden Boot trophy but should end up in the BCS National Title Game. Thankfully, CBS put this game back on the schedule the Friday after Thanksgiving before a college football hungry crowd.
