For No. 15 LSU, elite status at stake vs. Arkansas
BATON ROUGE - LSU running back Terrence Magee says the 15th-ranked Tigers have to beat Arkansas convincingly this Friday to prevent college football observers from labeling their recent triumph over Texas A&M a fluke.
Magee says last Saturday's 34-10 victory was no accident, and that the Tigers are peaking as they seek to finish 2013 by beating the Razorbacks in their regular season finale and winning a bowl game.
Beating Arkansas would keep alive LSU's chance at reaching double-digit wins for a fourth-straight season and maximize their bowl possibilities, which still include the Sugar Bowl, Cotton Bowl, Capital One Bowl, Outback Bowl and Gator Bowl.
Arkansas is trying to end an eight-game skid, and coach Bret Bielema is urging the Razorbacks to make their final week together a memorable one.
