ESPN: LSU-Arkansas Might Be Special

The SEC West and BCS championship are both on the line this weekend in Baton Rouge when Arkansas visits LSU. With the way special teams gaffes have impacted the national championship race so far, and the way LSU and Arkansas seems to always come down to the wire, special teams are expected to be a major factor this weekend. Both teams rank in the top-10 in Special Teams Efficiency (STE), but they excel in different ways. For Arkansas, its the electric punt and kickoff return teams; for LSU, punting and place kicking. Brian Fremeau breaks down the matchups to watch for in between offensive series.
