LSU survives Arkansas comeback bid, 33-30 in OT

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Josh Jasper hit a 41-yard field goal with 4 seconds to go to force overtime, then made a 36-yarder in overtime to lift LSU to a 33-30 victory over Arkansas on Saturday night.

Alex Tejada missed a 36-yard field goal that could have forced a second OT, and Arkansas (7-5, 3-5 Southeastern Conference) just missed a remarkable comeback bid, highlighted by Ryan Mallet's fourth-down touchdown pass to Joe Adams with 1:18 left, which gave the Razorbacks a 30-27 lead.

Jordan Jefferson threw for touchdown passes to Brandon LaFell and DeAngelo Peterson, and Trindon Holliday had an 87-yard punt return for a touchdown for LSU (9-3, 5-3), which could sneak into a New Year's Day bowl game because of Mississippi's loss earlier Saturday.
