KJ Jefferson scrambled away from the pass rush and threw a 43-yard touchdown pass to Dominique Johnson to tie the score at 10 midway through the quarter.

Nussmeier entered the game on LSU’s third possession and both of his passes went incomplete, but the Tigers drove 28 yards and running plays and one Arkansas penalty. That led to York’s 34-yard field goal that tied the score at the end of the period.
