Challenges for Auburn

Following the opening debacle against Florida State, Brian Kelly and his staff have done a great job of getting LSU back on track. Jayden Daniels has been excellent at quarterback for LSU. So far this season Daniels has connected on 81 of 111 passes for 835 yards, six touchdowns and no interceptions. Averaging almost six yards a carry, Daniels has run for 835 yards and six touchdowns. Stop Daniels and you stop LSU but it won’t be easy.

On defense, LSU has been very stingy. They’ve allowed just about 258 yards per game on average. Defensive end Sai’vion Jones has 13 tackles and 2 1/2 sacks for the Tigers. Defensive back Jay Ward leads the Tigers in tackles averaging 6.3 a game.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 6:00 PM CT (7:00 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the ESPN Network.
