LSU's Josh Japser makes his 36-yard field in overtime, but Arkansas' Alex Tejada's from the same distance goes awry as the Tigers down the Razorbacks 33-30 Saturday night in Baton Rouge.

Arkansas 30, LSU 30 (end of regulation) Josh Jasper's 41-yard field goal with 4 seconds left sends the game into overtime.

Ryan Mallett's 14-yard TD pass to Joe Adams on 4th and 9 gives Arkansas a 30-27 lead with 1:18 left. It was a 75-yard drive in 12 plays.

Arkansas 30, LSU 27 (1:18 left)

Ryan Mallett's 14-yard TD pass to Joe Adams on 4th and 9 gives Arkansas a 30-27 lead with 1:18 left. It was a 75-yard drive in 12 plays.

LSU 27, Arkansas 23 (4:05 fourth quarter)

Jasper's second field goal from 47 yards away has given the Tigers a 27-23 lead.

LSU 24, Arkansas 23 (9:52 fourth quarter)

Tejada's third field goal of the night came from 40 yards out and has pulled the Hogs within one point.

The Razorback defense made a nice stop on that last drive and another could be pivotal as the Tigers have had a tough time tonight stopping the Hogs' running game, especially in the second half. Mallett is playing better at the break, too.

LSU 24, Arkansas 20 (4:15 third quarter)

Whatever Bobby Petrino told his offense at halftime, it's working.

Arkansas responded to that last LSU touchdown with a 73-yard drive in seven plays. Broderick Green's 8-yard touchdown run capped the series.

A pair of passes from Mallett were key to the drive. First his 19-yard pass to Jarius Wright kept the drive alive on a third down. He then hit Childs for 29 yards to the LSU 19. Childs has receptions tonight of 27, 27 and 29.

LSU 24, Arkansas 13 (7:15 third quarter)

Jefferon's second touchdown pass of the night - this one 15 yards to Deangelo Peterson - has given the Tigers a 24-13 lead.

The Tigers went 67 yards in nine plays, taking 5:04 off the clock.

That was not a good drive defensively for the Hogs. It's also allowed this big crowd to get back in the game. That quick touchdown had kind of stunned them out of the gate.

LSU 17, Arkansas 13 (12:24 third quarter)

Arkansas is off to a good start in the second half. Jerry Franklin's interception and subsequent 28-yard return gave Arkansas the ball at the LSU 27.

The Hogs needed just three plays to capitalize, running the ball with Ronnie Wingo three times and capped by a 13-yard score.

Tonight's official attendance is 93,013.

LSU 17, Arkansas 6 (Halftime)

Tejada's 35-yard field goal with 48 seconds left in the half pulled the Hogs within 11.

Mallett finished the first half 7-for-20 for 91 yards. The story has been Holliday, who finished the half with 184 all-purpose yards.

LSU 17, Arkansas 3 (12:27 second quarter)

Holliday's 87-yard punt return for a touchdown has given LSU a 14-point lead.

It's Holliday's second special teams touchdown scored against the Razorbacks in his four-year career, along with a 93-yard kick return in the Tigers' 31-26 win over the Hogs in Little Rock in 2006.

LSU 10, Arkansas 3 (End first quarter)

Josh Jasper's 47-yard field goal with eight seconds left in the first quarter gave the Tigers a 10-3 lead.

Like the first scoring drive, a Holliday return - this time on a punt - set up the Tigers with great field position. His 27-yard return to the Arkansas 36 already had LSU in field goal position.

The Hogs will take over at their own 27 when play resumes after a nice kick return from Dennis Johnson. Arkansas has at least one first down on all three drives tonight. A few more of those this time around could tie it up.

LSU 7, Arkansas 3 (5:21 first quarter)

Jordan Jefferson's 16-yard touchdown pass to Brandon LaFell has given the Tigers their first lead.

Credit Trindon Holliday for that drive. His nice kick return gave LSU good field position and a pair of first down runs kept the ball moving. His speed is a real threat to the outside of Arkansas' defense.

Arkansas 3, LSU 0 (8:17 first quarter)

Alex Tejada's career-long tying 47-yard field goal has given the Razorbacks a 3-0 lead.

The Hogs have started well tonight. Ryan Mallett was picked inside LSU territory on the first possession of the game after a nice drive featuring a 27-yard catch by Greg Childs and a long run from Dennis Johnson.

Childs caught another 27-yarder on the second drive to set the Razorbacks up in LSU territory again.

Nice start to the game for Arkansas as well. Adrian Davis' sack really seemed to rattle the Tigers.

There are representatives from four bowls on hand. Those are the Cotton, Liberty, Independence and Capital One. It will be interesting to see how Ole Miss' loss earlier today impacts the bowl situation. Could the Capital One Bowl become a possibility for Arkansas with a strong performance tonight? Wouldn't rule it out.

It's a very nice night. Sunny and 60s today and the low tonight is in the upper 40s. This is a very windy stadium, however. It will be interesting to see if that affects the game at all.

LSU is wearing special uniforms tonight as part of NIKE's pro combat series. The Tigers are in white tops and white pants with gold helmets. The Hogs are in all red for the fifth consecutive week.
