Top-ranked LSU travels to Arkansas
BATON ROUGE - The top-ranked LSU Tigers are in Razorback country to take on No. 10 Arkansas in a three game series starting tonight at Baum Stadium in Fayetteville.
LSU (32-2, 11-1) has won 14 straight games and is tied with Vanderbilt for the overall SEC lead. They're also on a nine-game SEC streak, the longest league win streak since LSU's 2008 team won 12 straight conference games.
"We're looking forward to the challenge of playing at Arkansas - it's a tough environment and we certainly respect their program, but we're not going to be in awe of anyone," said LSU coach Paul Mainieri. "We've had some tremendous ball games with them over the years, and this weekend should provide the same type of excitement."
The Tigers lead the all-time series with Arkansas, 54-26, and LSU won seven of their last eight SEC regular-season series versus the Razorbacks. The only series win for Arkansas in the past eight seasons happened in 2011, when the Razorbacks swept three games at Baum Stadium.
The game is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. CT tonight.
