Razorbacks fall to LSU 13-10, Hogs move to 5-5

The Razorback football team struggled offensively against the Number one team in the SEC West.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The Arkansas football team dropped their second game in a row with a 13-10 loss to the LSU Tigers.

The Razorbacks took on LSU on Saturday without starting quarterback KJ Jefferson, backup QB Malik Hornsby made the start for the Hogs. 

As it snowed the night before in Fayetteville, the defense sent out a hail storm early in Arkansas vs LSU matchup by freezing the LSU offense. 

With 11:29 in the first quarter, LSU quarterback Jayden Daniels threw only his second interception of the season by throwing it right into Latavious Brini's hands, the Hogs took over at the 43-yard line. 

However, the Razorbacks wouldn't score until 4:48 left in the first quarter with a Cam Little field goal, which made it 3-0 Arkansas. 

Still in the first, Arkansas's Jordan Domineck forced a Daniels fumble and Brini came up clutch again to recover it. However, Arkansas wouldn't be able to capitalize off of that. 

LSU took the lead with two minutes left in half to take a 6-3 lead.  

In the third quarter, the Razorbacks continued to struggle offensively. 

On 4th-and-3, Hornsby was sacked at the Arkansas 40, which would cause a turnover on downs and led to a Josh Williams one-yard touchdown run that put LSU up 13-3.  

In the fourth quarter, another backup QB Cade Fortin would come in. With 13:17, left in the game Fortin found Matt Landers for a 40-yard touchdown pass to make it a closer game at 13-10 LSU. 

The Razorbacks would get the ball back with 1:35 and no timeouts, but Fortin would fumble and the Tigers recovered and that was the end of it.

The LSU defense was too strong with a Razorback offense depleted with injuries. 

LSU Freshman Harold Perkins led the Tiger defense with four sacks, two forced fumbles, and eight tackles. 

The LSU Tigers will now hope to punch their ticket to the SEC Championship if Alabama defeats Ole Miss tonight.

As for the Hogs, they will continue their journey to bowl eligibility when they take on Ole Miss next week.
