The LSU Football defense are a group of maulers
Credit to defensive coordinator Matt House for having the LSU’s defense ready to play. The Tigers started fast and immediately shrunk the field for Will Rogers and the Mississippi State offense.
The Bulldogs punted on all four of their first drives, including three of which they went three-and-out.
LSU defenders were in Rogers’ lap almost immediately on early snaps. As a result, the veteran quarterback could not get into a comfort zone and short-armed many throws. The credit for such belongs to the Tigers up front.
Indeed, LSU’s defensive line mauled the Bulldogs all afternoon.
The box score looks phenomenal on the LSU Football side, including four sacks and seven tackles for loss credited to the defense. However, the stat lines don’t show how incredibly disruptive Maason Smith and Mekhi Wingo were on Saturday. We must also credit defensive end Sai’vion Jones for playing an outstanding game.
It was nice to see the LSU defense play as stingy as we expected, especially after some early struggles against Grambling last week. Florida State is arguably the only team on the Tigers’ schedule that can match up with the size and skill of LSU’s defensive line.
Thus, we’re looking forward to seeing the Bayou Bengals’ big men continue to dominate.
