The No. 7 LSU Tigers face the Arkansas Razorbacks in Fayetteville this Saturday, Nov. 12 with kickoff set for noon ET. Two-loss LSU is fresh off a huge overtime win over Alabama in which a risky two-point conversion paid off big-time. Arkansas looked like they might be back on a winning streak, but lost in a close one to Liberty in Week 10.

The Pick

LSU -3.5

LSU looked like an elite team against Alabama, and they’ve looked like an elite team in the past several weeks with wins over Florida and Ole Miss. Barring a hangover from the Alabama excitement, LSU should be able to shut this roller coaster of a Razorbacks offense down, especially considering both their quarterbacks are injured. This spread seems like a lock.
