Arkansas Vs. LSU Final Score: SEC Championship Awaits Tigers

The LSU Tigers have punched their tickets to the Georgia Dome. That's the kind of thing people say, though they probably haven't even printed those tickets yet. LSU crushed the Arkansas Razorbacks, 41-17, in the de facto SEC Western Division title game, and will advance to play the Georgia Bulldogs in Atlanta.

LSU dominated on the ground and won the special teams battle while keeping Tyler Wilson largely bottled up. Kenny Hilliard broke 100 yards, Michael Ford and Spencer Ware combined for 143, and Wilson mustered only 199.

Tyrann Mathieu gets the game ball, because if you tried to give it to anybody else he'd just take it anyway. He peeled off a 92-yard punt return touchdown that gave LSU the momentum for good, forcing two fumbles and adding seven tackles.

The Tigers will be favored against UGA and are now 60 minutes away from playing for the national championship. They're probably already in the title game no matter what happens, but a win against the Dawgs would make it official.

Arkansas Vs. LSU Score: Fourth Quarter Lead Builds For Tigers

The LSU Tigers have found their game plan, finally: just keep running the ball. The Arkansas Razorbacks have no answer for Kenny Hilliard, Spencer Ware, and Michael Ford, giving up a seven-yard Ware touchdown to make it 31-17 with about 11 minutes left. Then Morris Claiborne picked off a Tyler Wilson overthrow, and this one might just about be wrapped up.

Go here for Arkansas-LSU scores and conversation.

The three-headed backfield has put together 198 yards on the ground, so many of them gruelers up the middle. That might not be a word. Either way, it's time to start looking up the Georgia Bulldogs run defense's stats. (They're pretty good, actually!)

Rueben Randle has also added 119 yards through the air, not to be outdone. He's been just about the entire passing attack for the Tigers.

Arkansas Vs. LSU Score Update: Hogs Hanging Tough In Third

The Arkansas Razorbacks aren't going quietly, now trailing only 21-17 to the LSU Tigers. Tyler Wilson hit Cobi Hamilton for a 60-yard catch-and-run up the sideline, putting the Hogs in prime scoring position while notching something like a fourth of their total yardage on the day so far.

Go here for Arkansas-LSU scores and conversation.

CBS aired a graphic showing Wilson leads the SEC in times being knocked down, with 60. Moments before, he was drilled in the chin, earning a roughing-the-passer call. The Hogs sent in dual threat Brandon Mitchell to spell Wilson. He did not get to deploy either of his threats, bobbling a snap and forcing a field goal try.

Wilson and Jordan Jefferson have both thrown for right around 175 yards now. A quarterback duel it is!

Arkansas Vs. LSU Halftime Score: Baton Rouge Deluge

The LSU Tigers now lead the Arkansas Razorbacks, 21-14, after trailing, 14-0. The Hogs are probably the only team in the SEC and one of the very few teams in the country capable of coming back from that kind of deficit against LSU -- as ridiculous as it sounds to call that "that kind of deficit" -- but Les Miles and company have completely taken this game over.

Go here for Arkansas-LSU scores and conversation.

Jordan Jefferson and Rueben Randle have been the offensive keys for LSU, with the former putting up 126 yards through the air and handing Arkansas a tough matchup overall. Kenny Hilliard has led the ground game with 47 yards.

The Razorbacks' explosive offense has been limited to 160 yards, 62 of them on their lone touchdown drive. The Hogs are averaging 3.3 yards per carry, and it looks like it'll be up to Tyler Wilson to restore momentum.

VIDEO: Tyrann Mathieu Return Touchdown Equalizes Arkansas-LSU

Remember when the Arkansas Razorbacks led the LSU Tigers by 14 points and the entire BCS was about to crumble and the SEC Championship Game was going to be Mississippi State-Clemson somehow and Alabama was already claiming the 2011 national title?

The Honey Badger has occurred, running back a punt from deep inside his own 20 to tie it up at 14-14 in the second.

Video via @cjzero:

That's Tyrann Mathieu, perhaps the best player on the country's best team, completely changing a game that at one point looked to be full upset alert-worthy. Each team now has a long offensive scoring drive and a non-offensive touchdown. Considering the rest of the game is either strength-on-strength or Jordan Jefferson-on-Arkansas' defense, it very well could come down to special teams plays.

(And, yes, he followed it by forcing a fumble that LSU recovered.)

That's good news for LSU, if you're just now joining us.

Arkansas Vs. LSU Game Update: It's A SEC West Shootout

The Arkansas Razorbacks aren't the only team in The Game Of The Century Part II capable of scoring points. This is newsworthy, since LSU Tigers games usually only involve one.

Go here for Arkansas-LSU scores and conversation.

It's now 14-7, Razorbacks, thanks to a six-yard Kenny Hilliard rush that capped a 14-play clanger of a drive. Jordan Jefferson is now eight-of-11 for 60 yards, but the key play might've been an incompletion.

Bottled up in the backfield for a sack, Jefferson kept his feet long enough to get the ball out of bounds, preserving all sorts of field position. He kept his feet long enough to stand and watch it land, but still. Jefferson's been an interesting matchup for the Hogs, and has had success running the option, even if some of that came on a forward-fumbled pitch that went for a first down somehow.

Arkansas Vs. LSU Update: Alonzo Highsmith Touchdown Sounds Uh-Oh Alert

The Arkansas Razorbacks have officially given the LSU Tigers their first scare of the year. It's 14-0, Hogs, after a touchdown by Alonzo Highsmith, who gathered up a Michael Ford fumble and scampered 47 yards.

Is LSU built to battle back from behind? And I mean behind by more than, like, three, as they were against Bama? We'll find out! 

The Tigers are averaging 2.9 yards per carry, and Jordan Jefferson's only had the chance to throw five passes. If LSU's defense can hold, there's still time for the Tigers offense to play its game.

Its game: Jefferson bobbled the first snap after that touchdown. That was followed by a false start. Safe to say LSU's shook for the first time since some point last year?

Arkansas Vs. LSU 2011 Score: Hogs Outscore Alabama, At Least

The Game Of The Century Part II saw the Arkansas Razorbacks surpass the Alabama Crimson Tide's showing against the LSU Tigers defense -- and doing it in only 15 minutes, too. If you're just now joining us, yes, scoring on LSU is a big deal, whether it's just one score or not.

Go here for Arkansas-LSU scores and conversation.

It's 7-0, Hogs, after an 11-play drive that ended with Tyler Wilson finding Jarius Wright in the middle of the field for a 13-yard touchdown. The Razorbacks have five first downs after one quarter, topping LSU's mere two. They also held the ball for two thirds of the opening period.

Seven points matches or exceeds what LSU gave up in six of its games so far this year. Three other opponents came in at 11 points or fewer.
