Arkansas ends SEC streak with 17-0 win over LSU

 FAYETTEVILLE, AR (AP) - Brandon Allen threw for 169 yards and Arkansas snapped a 17-game Southeastern Conference losing streak with a 17-0 win over No. 20 LSU on Saturday night.

The conference win is the first for the Razorbacks (5-5, 1-5 SEC) since 2012, and its coach Bret Bielema's first SEC win after 13 straight losses.

Arkansas' shutout is the school's first since a 20-0 win over Utah State in 2006, and it's the first in an SEC game since 2002 against South Carolina.

Jonathan Williams and Alex Collins ran for touchdowns for the Razorbacks, who held the Tigers (7-4, 3-4, No. 17 CFP) to 36 yards rushing on 32 attempts.

The loss is the second straight for LSU. It's only the second time it has lost back-to-back games in the Les Miles era.
