Confident Razorbacks eye third straight win against LSU

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) Arkansas has good reason to be confident when it hosts No. 19 LSU on Saturday, especially after defeating the Tigers in each of the last two seasons.

The Razorbacks (6-3, 2-3 Southeastern Conference) rebounded from a blowout loss to Auburn with a 31-10 win over Florida a week ago, keeping their hopes alive of improving their win total for a fourth straight season under coach Bret Bielema.

Arkansas won eight games last season, including its second straight victory over LSU (5-3, 3-2).

The Tigers, meanwhile, lost for the first time in four games under interim coach Ed Orgeron last week against No. 1 Alabama, and they are trying to avoid dropping three straight to the Razorbacks for the first time since 1927-29.
