FAYETTEVILLE, AR - LSU missed two field goals and fumbled inside the Arkansas redzone, as the Tigers lost to Arkansas on Saturday in frigid Reynolds Razorback Stadium, 17-0.

LSU (7-4, 3-4 SEC) held the Hogs to a season-low 264 yards of total offense but couldn't take advantage of limited opportunities on offense. The Tigers - who played without offensive guard Vadal Alexander and running back Kenny Hilliard, and lost center Elliott Porter in the first half to an injury - found little running room against the Razorbacks and weren't able to piece together a consistent passing attack.

Arkansas (5-5, 1-5 SEC) snapped a 17-game SEC losing streak dating to 2012. The Razorbacks were 10-of-17 on third down and outgained LSU, 264-123.

LSU quarterback Anthony Jennings was 12-of-22 passing for 87 yards, while Terrence Magee had a team-high 24 rushing yards. Travin Dural's five catches for 46 yards were a team-high.

Razorbacks quarterback Brandon Allen led his team to victory by completing 16-of-27 passes for 169 yards. Junior running back Jonathan Williams rushed 18 times for 55 yards while sophomore Alex Collins added 16 carries for 46 yards. Each scored a touchdown. Hunter Henry was Allen's top target with four catches for 54 yards, while AJ Derby added 36 yards on four catches.
