BATON ROUGE, La. – Derrius Guice rushed for 147 yards, finding the end zone three times, and D.J. Chark had a pair of receiving touchdowns as LSU picked up a 33-10 victory over Arkansas on Saturday.

The win for the Tigers (7-3, 4-2) was their second consecutive victory over the Razorbacks (4-6, 1-5), who saw their two-game winning streak come to an end.

Tied 7-7 at the half, LSU took the opening possssion of the second half 75 yards in eight plays, culminating with Guice’s 6-yard touchdown. The Tigers missed the extra point.

After Arkansas make it 13-10 on a 38-yard field goal by Connor Limpert on its next possession, Guice found the end zone again, this time from 33 yards out, making it 19-10 after another missed PAT.

On the first play of the fourth quarter, Danny Etling connected with Chark for a 68-yard touchdown. The pair also hooked up for a 45-yard score in the first half. Chark finished the game with 130 yards on four catches.

After throwing for only 137 yards in a loss to Alabama last week, Etling threw for 217 yards, completing 11 of 16 passes.

Down 26-10 midway through the fourth quarter, a quarterback sneak by Arkansas’ Cole Kelley on fourth down inside the Razorback 30-yard line was unsuccessful.

Five plays later Guice capped off a 147-yard day with a 1-yard plunge.

The LSU defense was also impressive, holding Arkansas to 318 total yards of offense. The 10 points were the lowest output for the Razorbacks since a 41-9 loss to No. 2 Alabama on Oct. 14.

The lone score of the first half for the Razorbacks came on its final possession of the second quarter when Devwah Whaley scored from a yard out.
