LSU Seals Trip To SEC Championship In 56-20 Win Over Arkansas

Arkansas v LSU

(AP) Joe Burrow passed for 327 yards and three touchdowns, Clyde Edwards-Helaire rushed for a career-high 188 yards and three TDs and LSU clinched its first trip since to the Southeastern Conference championship game since 2011.

LSU (11-0, 7-0) can finish no worse than a tie for first with Alabama (10-1, 6-1) and owns the tiebreaker by virtue of the Tigers' 46-41 triumph in Tuscaloosa on Nov. 9.

Burrow's first touchdown was a 37-yarder on the game's first possession to Ja'Marr Chase, and the two connected on a 50-yarder in the third quarter on which Burrow eclipsed 4,000 yards for the season and Chase increased in single-season LSU record for TD catches to 15.

Burrow's other touchdown toss came on a short crossing route to Justin Jefferson, who ran the last few yards of the 10-yard scoring play.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire scored on runs of 89, 27 and 26 yards, each time leaving at least one defensive back grasping at air, to give him 14 TDs rushing this season. His 89-yard run was a career long.

The Razorbacks (2-9, 0-7) have lost eight straight.
