Arkansas 17 LSU 41 Final

LSU was supposed to coast to the BCS national championship game after defeating Alabama a few weeks ago, but Arkansas had different plans.

The Razorbacks lost to Alabama back in September, but they have fought their way back towards the top of the BCS standings. They currently stand at No. 3 behind the other two SEC West powerhouses, but a win over top-ranked LSU can change that.

Meanwhile, LSU has been rolling throughout the season. Considering they have already beaten six teams in the Top 25, including No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Oregon, the Tigers will not be scared of facing a ranked team.

The average college football fan knows all about the Tigers by now, but Arkansas has a lot more to prove in this game.

It does not have the impressive offensive or defensive numbers that the other top teams have, it was blown out in the second half by Alabama and its best win was against a South Carolina squad that had already lost quarterback Stephen Garcia and running back Marcus Lattimore for the season.

However, a win over LSU would change everything.
