Tigers take dramatic 31-27 win on late touchdown toss
BATON ROUGE - Trailing by four points and missing four starters, the LSU offense fired a missile down field on third down from their own 49-yard line for the go-ahead score late against Arkansas.
Backup quarterback Anthony Jennings entered the game when starter Zach Mettenberger went down with a knee injury.
Jennings made the biggest throw of his young career as he found a wide open Travin Dural streaking down the sideline for the go ahead score.
LSU took the lead 31-27 in the final minute and a half, and the LSU defense forced a fumble on Arkansas' final possession to lock up the once-in-doubt victory.
The Tigers improve to 9-3 on the season and now await their bowl fate, which they will learn a week from Sunday.
