FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas looks to remain perfect at home this season when it hosts LSU on Saturday night.

The Razorbacks (12-4, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) are 12-0 in Bud Walton Arena this season, including a win over then-No. 15 Mississippi State last week.

However, Arkansas fell to 0-4 away from home this season in a 71-63 loss at Mississippi on Wednesday — placing even more importance on remaining perfect at home against the Tigers (11-5, 1-1).

LSU enters the game following a 69-53 loss at Alabama on Wednesday, a game in which the Tigers allowed 25 points to the Crimson Tide through 15 turnovers. The Razorbacks lead the SEC by forcing an average of 18.5 turnovers per game.
