Challenges for Tennessee

Jayden Daniels is similar in effectiveness to Hendon Hooker. So far this season he’s completed 89 of 131 passes for 915 yards, six touchdowns, and like Hooker, no interceptions. Daniels, who passed for over 6,000 yards at Arizona State in three seasons before transferring to LSU, is helping the Tigers make it back to respectability after the opening debacle against Florida State. Daniels, who was hurt against LSU but is expected to play on Saturday, is also a threat to take it to the house on his feet. He averages about 65 yards rushing per game and has three rushing TDs this season. LSU has a lot of athletic, talented players but Daniels is the man on the team that can do Tennessee the most damage. The Vol defense had better be ready.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 11:00 AM CT (12:00 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the SEC Network.
