Arkansas coach Bret Bielema still feels pretty good about his team's showing against LSU this past Saturday at Tiger Stadium.
At his Monday news conference, Bielema was quoted as saying he's glad the score remained 31-14 so that people who didn't watch the game know it was a "whooping."
Bielema is now 2-1 against LSU after Arkansas’ 31-14 victory Saturday night in Tiger Stadium. He’ll return back to Fayetteville, Arkansas, with this team getting to retain The Golden Boot trophy for the second straight year.
“People freak out around that Boot,” Bielema said. “The power of that thing, our players really respond to it.”
Bielema’s actually a miracle away from being undefeated when facing Miles.
The Tigers needed that 49-yard heave in 2013 — Bielema’s first year at Arkansas — from then-freshman backup Anthony Jennings to win that one. Remember, that was an Arkansas team that went winless in the conference.
Then, Bielema and the Hogs embarrassed LSU last year on a frozen night in Fayetteville, shutting them out 17-0.
Bielema humiliated the Tigers again Saturday, giving him back-to-back victories against Miles.
The only other coaches to accomplish that same feat since Miles arrived in Baton Rouge are Nick Saban, Urban Meyer and Houston Nutt.
“There were a lot of Arkansas people smiling ear to ear to get two in a row on LSU,” Bielema said. “Especially with one over here at night. It really represents what we’re all about.”
