The LSU Tigers don’t have time to think about last week.  The game against Alabama can’t be replayed, you don’t get a mulligan. That game is history.  

Deuce Mcallister says the Tigers have to put that loss behind them to beat a sneaky good Arkansas team this week.

“Don’t be flat! I know from an emotional stand point you’re hurt. But you have to go and play this game against the Hogs.” 

Arkansas has a tendency to turn the ball over and McAllister says the Tigers have to take advantage if Arkansas gives them the football.

“Arkansas has senior day up their Fayetville, the Razorbacks are going to have some emotion and energy, but If they turn over the football you have to make them pay,” Deuce explained.

The way Arkansas is going to have success against LSU is if the Tigers kind of meander about the game.

“You can’t let them hang around. You can’t allow them to get any momentum going,” McAllister added.

Arkansas did put up 31 points in a loss to Alabama this season.

“Oh they can move the football, they’ve got some talent at receiver.  The Tigers have to be able to get pressure on the QB (Ty Storey) in order to slow down the Razorbacks,” Deuce added.

Arkansas lost to North Texas this season 44-17, and are 0-5 in the SEC.

Deuce likes the match up for the Tigers if they execute to their ability he feels the Tigers can take care of business against Arkansas. 

“It sounds like coach speak, but against this team you have to take care of the football and win the turnover battle.  If the Tigers force two turnovers and protect the football, LSU wins this game decisively,” McAllister said.   

Deuce’s prediction?  LSU 38 Arkansas 14.  Geaux Tigers!
