LSU made sure there wouldn't be any last-minute heroics by Arkansas this time.

Marcus Randall ran for two touchdowns and threw two more to Joseph Addai, leading No. 14 LSU to a 43-14 victory over Arkansas.

The Tigers earned a bit of revenge at War Memorial Stadium. Two years ago, the Razorbacks scored with nine seconds left to beat a ranked LSU team by one point.

"This is a difficult place to play," LSU coach Nick Saban said. "We hadn't won here in a while and they hadn't lost here in a while. It was nice to win."

Randall was 10 of 14 for 173 yards and had 79 yards rushing. Alley Broussard added 81 yards rushing for the Tigers (9-2, 6-2 Southeastern Conference), who ended the game with 26 unanswered points.

"Coach (Saban) kept reminding us about what happened here two years ago all week. I told coach that I felt comfortable running the ball," Randall said. "Their defense is pretty simple and our scout team did a great job imitating them all week."

The loss was Arkansas' first in 18 games at Little Rock under coach Houston Nutt and keeps the Razorbacks (5-6, 3-5) from qualifying for a seventh consecutive bowl.
