In the first meeting where both Auburn and Arkansas were ranked last week, they set a record for the highest-scoring regulation game in SEC history. The teams combined for more than 1,000 yards and five punts.  Arkansas came out on the losing end, however, with a final score of 65-43.

"I'm sitting there on the sideline saying, 'Wow, we have this many points, and they have that many points,'" Auburn's quarterback Cam Newton said after the game. "At one point, we didn't want to score too fast because it was like a heavyweight boxing match."

Newton had over 100 yards rushing for the 4th time in 7 games this season.

Meanwhile, LSU last week extended the nation's longest regular season nonconference win streak to 32 games after beating McNeese State of Southland. LSU has not lost in the regular season to a nonconference opponent since its 2002 season opener at Virginia Tech.

LSU is 7-0 for the first time since 1973.

Still, the coach of LSU wasn’t exactly satisfied with Saturday’s win.

"I didn't think we played with a lot of emotion," Louisiana State University Coach Les Miles said following a win that was closer than the final score indicated.  "If you look in college football, you can see that there's some other teams that played emotional games the week before and didn't quite play their best.  Maybe the timing was right for us to play McNeese and play as poorly as we did and win."
