BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Derrius Guice rushed for 147 yards, finding the end zone three times, and D.J. Chark had a pair of receiving touchdowns as LSU picked up a 33-10 victory over Arkansas on Saturday.

The win for the Tigers (7-3, 4-2) was their second consecutive victory over the Razorbacks (4-6, 1-5), who saw their two-game winning streak come to an end.

Tied 7-7 at the half, LSU took the opening possession of the second half 75 yards in eight plays, culminating with Guice's 6-yard touchdown. The Tigers missed the extra point.

After Arkansas make it 13-10 on a 38-yard field goal by Connor Limpert on its next possession, Guice found the end zone again, this time from 33 yards out, making it 19-10 after another missed PAT.

On the first play of the fourth quarter, Danny Etling connected with Chark for a 68-yard touchdown. The pair also hooked up for a 45-yard score in the first half. Chark finished the game with 130 yards on four catches.

After throwing for only 137 yards in a loss to Alabama last week, Etling threw for 217 yards, completing 11 of 16 passes.

Down 26-10 midway through the fourth quarter, a quarterback sneak by Arkansas' Cole Kelley on fourth down inside the Razorback 30-yard line was unsuccessful.

Five plays later Guice capped off a 147-yard day with a 1-yard plunge.

The LSU defense was also impressive, holding Arkansas to 318 total yards of offense. The 10 points were the lowest output for the Razorbacks since a 41-9 loss to No. 2 Alabama on Oct. 14.

The lone score of the first half for the Razorbacks came on its final possession of the second quarter when Devwah Whaley scored from a yard out.

David Williams was the leading rusher for Arkansas with 81 yards on 13 carries. Austin Allen completed 13 of 23 passes for 140 yards.

THE TAKEAWAY

LSU: For the second consecutive season, the Tigers bounced back from a loss against Alabama to defeat the Razorbacks. LSU snapped a two-game losing streak to Arkansas last season with a 38-10 defeat in Fayetteville. The Tigers also remain on pace to win 10 games for the first time since 2013. LSU also retained the Boot, a 24-karat trophy molded into the shape of Louisiana and Arkansas. LSU now holds a 14-8 record against Arkansas since the two teams started playing for the 175-pound trophy, believed to be one of the heaviest trophies in college football.

ARKANSAS: The Razorbacks have their work cut out for them if they are to make it to their fourth consecutive bowl game. Arkansas must defeat No. 16 Miss. State on Nov. 18 and Missouri in the season finale on Nov. 24 to become bowl eligible.
