  11/14/21 - QB KJ JeffersonrJr/2024, Arkansas

  Arkansas coach Sam Pittman wasn't worried about style points. He was happy to take the Razorbacks' first victory over LSU since 2015 however it came. Arkansas' Cam Little kicked a 37-yard field goal in overtime after LSU freshman quarterback Garrett Nussmeier was intercepted by Montaric Brown earlier in the extra period, and the Razorbacks beat the Tigers 16-13 on Saturday night to take home the "Golden Boot" trophy. "Such a hard-fought game. It was ugly, beautiful and all in between," Pittman said. "It wasn't pretty, but we kept fighting. When that ball went through the uprights, it was one of the prettiest things I have ever seen." Nussmeier, who's been a backup throughout this season, replaced Max Johnson after two fruitless possessions to start the game and completed 18 of 31 passes for 179 yards and a touchdown.

But the promise he showed in spurts was overshadowed by his two interceptions. Nussmeier's overtime turnover came on a fade pass from the Arkansas 8. "That is on me," Nussmeier said. "I have to make the play and be smarter in overtime. I can't turn the ball over." After that, Arkansas needed just a field goal to win and set it up with three QB keepers by KJ Jefferson. Jefferson passed for 142 yards and one touchdown to running back Dominique Johnson, who slipped uncovered behind LSU's defense for a 43-yard touchdown while Jefferson was scrambling after spinning away from blitzing linebacker Damone Clark. "I knew they were bringing pressure, so I had to make one guy miss," Jefferson said. "Then I gave Johnson a good ball and he did the rest." - Arkansas/AP College Football
