BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - LSU head coach Les Miles met with the media for the final time Wednesday night, before his team celebrates Thanksgiving on Thursday and plays football on Friday.
The Tigers face Arkansas (3-8, 0-7 SEC) in the midst of a school record eight-game losing skid.
While Razorbacks first-year coach Brett Bielema has had a rough go of it in his first SEC season since leaving Wisconsin of the Big 10, he said he's looking forward to what he calls a trophy game.
LSU (8-3, 4-3 SEC) will celebrate senior day, but according to Miles, in order to truly enjoy the festivities, his defense that looked so good against Texas A&M will have to hold off the Hogs' running game, which has been the real strength for Bielema's team, compared to the passing game with first-year starter Brandon Allen.
"They're a talented offensive line, (with) backs that can make a change of direction and have good size," Miles said. "We're going to have to play well, going to have to play physical."
Kickoff for LSU and Arkansas from Tiger Stadium is scheduled for Friday at 1:30 p.m. The game can be seen on WAFB.
