Why oh why didn't I buy tickets for what was by far the best contested SEC game of the year between LSU and Arkansas. LSU finishing out the hardest road schedule I can remember and Arkansas trying to ride a winning streak to 10 games into the SEC championship game and possibly a national championship game. Hard hitting, non stop action and the game was over before I could sit down once with the LSU Tigers beating a team that looked like they would not be denied.
Arkansas Running Game
Oh my God what do you say about Darren McFadden and Felix Jones that hasn't been said before? Blinding speed and plays that would normally seem to be "trick" plays just work fine in their offense. These guys racked up over 300 yards against the number one defense in the country. Not to mention McFadden lead their team in passin? They marched down the field immediately as the game started and scored like they were playing the worst defense in the country instead of the first leaving Tiger fans dismayed at what was happening. When McFadden broke that 80 yard run my heart about dropped out and I felt like we were losing the game until....
LSU Special Teams
Before we can even get ready for the next drive Trindon Holiday bolts down the sideline for a 92 yard kick return nearly erasing from everyone's minds what McFadden had just done. This guy is unbelievable! He's 5'5", 160 lbs and so fast that its near impossible to touch him. LSU can definitely look to do huge things with Trindon's future.
