The LSU offense has a different look this season and it begins with junior quarterback Joe Burrow. So far this season Burrow has completed 52 of 106 attempts for 733 yards and 3 TDs with 0 INTs. While the Tigers have been more focused on running the ball thru their first four games Burrow has proven to be very efficient as a passer when needed. Burrow also is very effective as a runner with 58 yards rushing and 1 TD on the ground.
The LSU backfield is very dangerous and have a number of very good RBs. Senior Nick Brousette leads all Tigers with 83 carries for 409 yards and 5 TDs while Clyde Edwards-Helaire has 46 carries for 208 yards and 4 TDs on the ground. Both backs are very fast and can get into the second level of the defense in a hurry.
Although the Tigers don’t throw the ball around a lot the Tigers WR group is also very good and very effective when they have to make big catches. Leading all Tigers receivers is sophomore Justin Jefferson who has 13 receptions for 195 yards. Junior Dee Anderson has 10 receptions for 141 yards while three other Tigers receivers have 6 receptions each. Junior Stephen Sullivan has 93 receiving yards and 1 TD while senior tight-end Foster Moreau has 80 receiving yards. Freshman WR Ja’Marr Chase has 77 receiving yards and 1 TD.
