Jennings leads LSU past Arkansas

Baton Rouge, LA (SportsNetwork.com) - Freshman Anthony Jennings' first-career touchdown pass to Travin Dural with 1:15 remaining proved to be the difference in No. 15 LSU's 31-27 win over the Arkansas Razorbacks in the 18th annual battle for the Golden Boot.

Jennings, who took over for starter Zach Mettenberger after the senior went down with a left knee injury midway through the fourth, led a 99-yard touchdown drive in the final minutes to keep "The Boot" in Baton Rouge for another season.

LSU (9-3, 5-3 SEC) has taken down Arkansas (3-9, 0-8) in three straight meetings.

The Tigers began the decisive drive from inside their own 1-yard line after a 65-yard Sam Irwin-Hill punt with just over three minutes left pinned them deep. Jennings did a quick sneak for two yards before completing passes to Dillon Gordon and Jarvis Landry for first downs. Jennings then scampered 21 yards into Arkansas territory before unleashing a throw down the field on 3rd- and-10 for a wide open Dural, who hauled in the 49-yard touchdown to the delight of the home crowd.

Arkansas picked up a quick first down on its final drive but Dwayne Thomas sacked Brandon Allen and forced a fumble, which Jermauria Rasco pounced on to seal the win and a perfect home record for LSU.
