FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., Nov. 23 (UPI) -- Zach Mettenberger was 16-of-29 passing for 217 yards and a touchdown Friday to lead No. 7 LSU past Arkansas 20-13.

Jeremy Hill picked up 77 yards and scored a touchdown on 18 carries and Odell Beckham caught four passes for 112 yards for the Tigers (10-2, 6-2 SEC), who won their third straight game -- and kept the door open for a possible SEC championship.

If Auburn beats Alabama Saturday and Texas A&M gets past Missouri, LSU will win the SEC west and shot at the conference title in Atlanta.

Tyler Wilson was 31-of-52 passing for 359 yards, one touchdown and one interception for the Razorbacks.

Cobi Hamilton caught 10 passes for 98 yards for Arkansas, which lost three straight to wind up its season at (4-8, 2-6).
