LSU Holds Off Arkansas Rally for 20-13 Victory

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Jarvis Landry made a spectacular one-handed touchdown catch and LSU (No. 7 BCS, No. 8 AP) kept its BCS hopes alive with a 20-13 win over Arkansas on Friday.

Zach Mettenberger passed for 217 yards and hooked up with Landry for the play of the day with 1:12 left in the first half to put LSU up 10-0. The Tigers (10-2, 6-2 Southeastern Conference) reached double-digit wins for the sixth time in eight seasons under coach Les Miles.

LSU must now hope for an Alabama loss to Auburn and Texas A&M victory on Saturday in order to reach next weekend's SEC championship game. Even without a division crown, the Tigers could still get an at-large bid to the BCS.

Tyler Wilson was 31-of-52 passing for the Razorbacks (4-8, 2-6), whose fall from preseason top 10 is now complete. The senior set the school record for career passing yards in the loss.

Arkansas' Cobi Hamilton set the school record for receptions in a career with 175.
