    Arkansas had some huge plays on offense and their running game is getting stronger every week. They are finally a balanced team keeping the pressure off of Ryan Mallet to do it all. The play that ended the first half seemed to hurt LSU more than expected as they are a resilient team normally. With 6 seconds left in the half deep inside their own territory Mallet threw a seemingly harmless 25 yard slant that after two LSU defenders collided turned into a 79 yard TD giving Arkansas a 21-14 lead they would never relinquish. Don’t even know why they threw it as with one play left most teams kneel down to avoid a disaster. Well the play worked and after that Arkansas played with as much physicality as LSU and earned the victory. LSU could never really get going in the second half as Arkansas always seemed to be in control. Les Miles now has no argument about his one loss team making the big game as they are out of contention.
