GAME RECAP, PREVIEW WRITTEN BY Zack Higbee, COURTESY ARKANSAS MEDIA RELATIONS

 

 

Here are  the Arkansas football game notes for this week as well as a RazorGraph from Saturday’s game. The Razorbacks play at LSU on Friday at 1:30 p.m. on CBS.

· LSU is the fifth top-15 team Arkansas has played this season, which ties the regular season school record. In 2011 and 2006, UA played six top-15 teams including the bowl game.

· Underclassmen have made 88 starts this season for Arkansas, with true freshmen making 25 starts, redshirt freshmen starting nine times and sophomores making 54 starts.

· Underclassmen have accounted for 93.4 percent of Arkansas’ total rushing yards, 90.8 percent of total offense, 87.0 percent of total passing yards, 98.4 percent of kickoff return yards, 79.7 percent of all-purpose yards, 56.9 percent of receiving yards, 59.3 percent of touchdowns scored and 57.1 percent of forced fumbles.

· For the 18th straight time, Arkansas and LSU will be playing for the Golden Boot, a trophy shaped like the two states combined. The trophy was introduced prior to the 1996 game and, at approximately 175 pounds, is believed to be among the heaviest trophies awarded in a college football rivalry. Head coach Bret Bielema is 10-2 (.833) in regular season rivalry trophy games in his career. Coach Bielema was 7-0 competing against Minnesota for Paul Bunyan’s Axe and 3-2 against Iowa with the Hartland Trophy on the line.

· Arkansas leads the SEC and is tied for 15th in the country with an average of 4.27 penalties per game, with 18 pre-snap penalties so far in 2013. Through 11 games last year, the Razorbacks had been flagged 67 times with 36 penalties before the snap.

· Arkansas has allowed just 7.0 sacks through the first 11 games, which is the lowest total in the SEC and tied for the 2nd-lowest total in the country. The Razorbacks also lead the SEC and rank 7th in NCAA by allowing one sack every 38.86 pass attempts.

Michigan State, Ohio State to battle for Big Ten Conference Championship at Lucas Oil Stadium December 7

(courtesy Big 10)

 

Rosemont, Ill. – With victories on Saturday, Michigan State and Ohio State secured berths in the third annual Big Ten Football Championship Game to be played on Saturday, Dec. 7, at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The Spartans will make their second title game appearance in three years while the Buckeyes will play in the championship game for the first time. The winner of the 2013 Big Ten Football Championship Game will earn the Amos Alonzo Stagg Championship Trophy and a chance to play in one of two historic games in Pasadena, Calif. – the 100th Rose Bowl Game on Jan. 1 or the Bowl Championship Series National Championship Game on Jan. 6.

Michigan State collected a road victory at Northwestern today to earn the outright Legends Division title, the program’s second outright division crown in three seasons after finishing first in 2011. The Spartans improved to 7-0 in the Big Ten and 10-1 overall and host Minnesota in their regular season finale on Nov. 30.
Ohio State defeated Indiana today to secure at least a share of a second straight Leaders Division title. The Buckeyes set a school record with their 23rd straight victory, the fifth-longest winning streak in Big Ten history, and improved to 7-0 in conference and 11-0 overall. Wisconsin earned a road win at Minnesota today to improve to 6-1 in the Big Ten and 9-2 overall and still maintains hopes for a share of the division title. But Ohio State clinched a berth in the championship game based on its victory over the Badgers on Sept. 28. Both teams wrap up the regular season on Nov. 30, with Ohio State at Michigan and Wisconsin hosting Penn State.

The Spartans and Buckeyes will meet for the first time since the 2012 Big Ten opener, when Ohio State edged Michigan State, 17-16, in East Lansing, Mich. In a back-and-forth game, Buckeyes quarterback Braxton Miller connected on a 63-yard scoring strike to Devin Smith to take a 17-13 lead in the third quarter. The Spartans added a fourth-quarter field goal, but Ohio State held on for the one-point victory in Urban Meyer’s first Big Ten game as a head coach.

 

Ticket blocks for the 2013 Big Ten Football Championship Game are being held for Michigan State and Ohio State and will be sold through university ticket offices. Tickets can also be purchased through Ticketmaster at www.ticketmaster.com or by calling (800) 745-3000.
