Live Updates: Arkansas 16, LSU 13 FINAL

The No. 25 Arkansas Razorbacks will look to bring the Golden Boot back to Fayetteville for the first time since 2015.

Arkansas (6-3, 2-3 SEC) is set to take on LSU (4-5, 2-4) in a rivalry game that will certainly impact their chances at a New Years Day bowl bid. The Tigers have been on a roller coaster this season and are currently dead last in the SEC West standings.

Several weeks ago it was announced that LSU mutually agreed to part ways with head coach Ed Orgeron. Since that announcement, the Tigers have lost two straight and stumble into Saturday's Golden Boot game below .500.

Arkansas enters the game on a two-game winning streak and is hoping to increase their chances at a quality bowl bid. The last time the Razorbacks played in a post-New Years Day bowl game was the 2011 Cotton Bowl.

The last time Arkansas won in Baton Rouge was the 2015 season, when they defeated the No. 9 LSU Tigers, 31-14, in a prime-time matchup at Tiger Stadium.
