COLLEGE FOOTBALL : No. 14 Arkansas Pays Dearly for LSU’s Rare Winning Season
Kendall Cleveland, a redshirt freshman who averaged only 46 yards a game this year, rushed for 102 yards and three touchdowns Saturday as LSU shut out No. 14 Arkansas, 28-0.
The victory gave LSU, 6-4-1 overall and 4-3-1 in the Southeastern Conference, its first winning season since 1988.
Arkansas (8-3, 6-2) had already clinched the SEC Western Division title and will play Florida for the conference title Dec. 2 in Atlanta. The victory also positioned LSU to play in its first bowl game since the 1989 Hall of Fame Bowl.
LSU owned the half, keeping the football for almost 20 minutes, outgaining Arkansas, 236 yards to 21. The Razorbacks finished with only 79 yards for the game.
Arkansas quarterback Barry Lunney completed only 10 of 28 passes for 78 yards. He also was sacked five times.
