LSU's Jarvis Landry Touchdown Streak Ends at Seven

Jarvis Landry appeared to have a hurt ankle during the game against Mississippi State. He was spotted limping on several occasions during the game. Even with the injury, Landry put together a quality performance. He caught eight passes for 96 yards, including a couple of highlight worthy catches.

However he failed to catch a touchdown pass for the first time in eight games. His streak of seven straight games with at least one touchdown catch is tied with Dwayne Bowe for the longest in LSU history.

Landry’s streak started last year against the Arkansas Razorbacks, with arguably the best catch in 2012. The ball was thrown behind him, and Landry twisted his body while extending out his arm to make a sensational one handed snag.

After his highlight touchdown grab against Arkansas, Landry had a touchdown catch against Clemson to end the season.

This season he has been completely unstoppable as no defense seems to have an answer for him. He is arguably the best receiver in the nation and is on the Biletnikoff Award watch list. Landry has 42 receptions for 616 yards through six games this seaon.

Starting with the season opener against TCU,  he has caught at least one touchdown pass in every game this season, but Landry will have to settle with a tie as his streak ended at seven tonight against Mississipi State. His streak is over but Landry is still one of the best receivers in the entire country and he will continue to perform at a high level for LSU.
