With three weeks left to go in the regular season, LSU finds itself in a position it hasn’t been in since 2011: the bubble.
LSU (26-19, 10-11 Southeastern Conference) begins a pivotal eight-game homestand with a series against SEC West-leading Arkansas (32-13, 13-8 SEC) at Alex Box Stadium on Friday night.
