Arkansas returns to action following a bye week determined to end its home schedule on a high note.

It won't be an easy task, as the Razorbacks take on nationally ranked LSU at 6:30 p.m. Saturday in Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The game will be televised by the SEC Network.

The Razorbacks (2-7, 0-5 SEC) have not played since Oct. 27 when they were defeated at home by Vanderbilt.

LSU (7-2, 4-2), ranked No. 7 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings, is also attempting to bounce back from a loss, as the Tigers dropped a 29-0 decision in Baton Rouge to top-ranked Alabama. But since Ed Orgeron took over as coach two seasons ago, LSU is 7-0 in games immediately following a defeat. After the Tigers' other defeat, at Florida, LSU rebounded the following week to down Georgia.

Also under Orgeron, the Bayou Bengals are 12-0 in SEC games when scoring at least 20 points.

LSU leads the all-time series against the Razorbacks, 39-22-2. The Tigers have also won the last two games and five of the last seven against the Hogs.

Once again, the winner of this game will gain possession of the Boot, the trophy comprised of the states of Arkansas and Louisiana which resembles a boot. Since the Boot was introduced in 1996, LSU has claimed it 13 times while the Hogs have held possession eight times.

It will also be the fifth time the Tigers have visited Fayetteville, as both teams have won two games apiece. The last time the game was in Fayetteville, LSU broke a two-game losing skid to the Hogs with a 38-10 win in 2016.

LSU quarterback Joe Burrow, a graduate transfer from Ohio State, has completed 138-of-258 passes for 1,728 yards and six touchdowns with four interceptions. Senior tailback Nick Brossette is second in the SEC in rushing touchdowns with 10 to go with 749 yards.

On the defensive side, LSU's defensive backs lead the conference and are second in the nation in interceptions with 15. The Tigers are also ranked fifth nationally in turnover margin (+12) and eighth nationally in turnovers forced (20).

Linebacker Devin White, an All-American candidate, ranks fourth in the SEC in tackles with 84, while sophomore safety Grant Delpit leads the SEC and is second in the nation in interceptions with five.

The Tigers also have a strong kicking game in placekicker Cole Tracy, who is the nation's active leader in field goals with 89. Tracy, who transferred to LSU in the offseason from Division II Assumption College, has kicked 21 field goals this season, which is tops in the conference.

LSU has also played a challenging schedule, as the Tigers' eight Football Bowl Subdivision opponents they have played so far are a combined 51-21, which is second in the nation in wins behind Stanford. The Tigers play two teams which currently own a losing record, Rice and Arkansas.

For the Razorbacks, quarterback Ty Storey is expected to get the starting nod. Storey has completed 104-of-178 passes for 1,223 yards and nine TDs while throwing seven interceptions.

Tailback Rakeem Boyd had 113 yards in the loss to Vanderbilt two weeks ago, the third time in the past four ballgames he has topped 100 yards in a game. Boyd leads the Razorbacks with 615 yards rushing on 94 carries and two TDs.

On defense, linebacker De'Jon Harris regained the conference lead in tackles as he now has 93 stops, which also ranks him 24th in the nation. Fellow linebacker Dre Greenlaw, who will be one of 15 seniors honored during pregame Senior Night ceremonies, is the SEC's active leader in tackles with exactly 300.

Following Saturday's home finale, Arkansas ends its season with back-to-back road games, at Mississippi State on Nov. 17 and at Missouri on Nov. 23.
