Challenges for LSU

It’s happy times again for LSU this season. If only they had pulled off that first game against Florida State, they might have had a shot at making the playoff. All they can do now is keep winning and hope for the best. KJ Jefferson is a beast at quarterback for the Hogs. So far this season Jefferson has passed with accuracy. He has 148 completions on 222 attempts for 1,981 yards, 17 touchdowns, and three interceptions. He’s completed 67 percent of his passes. But you can’t focus only on defending the pass versus Jefferson and the Razorbacks. You also must be on guard for the run. Jefferson has 425 yards rushing with six touchdowns. The hogs also must account for running back Raheim Sanders. He’s averaging 122 yards rushing per game.

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