Tigers hope to go Hog wild in season finale

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, La -

LSU and Arkansas face each other Friday in Tiger Stadium as two teams going in different directions.  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.

Arkansas' season will come to an end this week at LSU.

This game also marks the end of the tradition which has had LSU and Arkansas end their regular seasons against each other every year since 1992, when Arkansas joined the SEC.  Starting next year LSU will end its regular season against Texas A&M on Thanksgiving while Arkansas will end its season against Missouri.

First-year Razorbacks coach Bret Bielema hopes to make the most of the season's final days -- and possibly put an end to the longest losing streak in school history.  Arkansas (3-8, 0-7 Southeastern Conference) lost its eighth-straight game last week against Mississippi State, a difficult one in which the Razorbacks led before falling in overtime.

Bielema, who was hired away from Wisconsin last December, has yet to win an SEC game in his first year in the league. He'll have his final chance this season against the No. 15 Tigers (8-3, 4-3), who are coming off a 34-10 win over Texas A&M.
