This Saturday, Jarvis Landry could potentially break an LSU receiving record that was set by Dwayne Bowe. Landry has been absolutely sensational this year for the Tigers. He has been a big reason the LSU offense is one of the most complete units in all of college football.
The LSU offense is really good this year, something that has been foreign to Tiger fans for a while. A lot of the credit needs to be given to new offensive coordinator Cam Cameron for energizing the offense, and Zach Mettenberger for his leadership and development. However, Jarvis Landry has been extremely reliable and uncanny in his ability to make highlight worthy catches.
Landry leads the Tigers in every receiving category expect for yards per catch, which is held by tight end Travis Dickson who only has two receptions. Landry has 520 receiving yards, more than 100 yards a game and seven touchdowns.
At Mississippi State Landry will be on the verge of history. His seven game touchdown streak ties him with Dwayne Bowe for the LSU record for consecutive games with at least one touchdown reception. He finished last season with a touchdown in each of the last two games
Mississippi State’s pass defense has played surprisingly well considering the turnover in the secondary with Johnthan Banks and Darius Slay in the NFL. Landry will face a stiff test to break the record this weekend, but the ‘Dawgs have yet to face a team with a weapon like Landry.
The LSU offense has yet to be slowed this season, and it is unlikely that Mississippi State will be the team to stop the trend. Landry has been extremely consistent all season and I expect him to break the record Saturday night in Starkvegas.
