Joe Labruzzo scored two first-half touchdowns, one from 3 yards out and another from the 1-yard line, as LSU ended the longest winning streak in college football with a 14-7 victory over second-ranked Arkansas. The Tigers snapped the Hogs' winning streak at 22 straight and proved to be one of the biggest upsets in school history. With a record crowd of 76,200 on hand, LSU took advantage of an Arkansas fumble for its first touchdown and then added another TD following a poor kick. Arkansas took a 7-0 lead on its second possession of the game, but that was all the points the Razorbacks could manage as LSU's mighty defense held the Hogs scoreless for the final three quarters. LSU clinched the victory when Jerry Joseph intercepted a Razorbacks pass at the Tigers 20-yard line with 6:17 left in the game. Labruzzo was named the MVP of the game, rushing for 69 yards and two TDs.
 
Erected by LSU, Greg and Brenda Hamer and Family.
