Jayden Daniels total passing yards: 300+

So far, this has been a ludicrously productive season for Jayden Daniels. He is leading the No. 1 offense in the country which is gaining 8.1 yards per play and the No. 3 passing offense.

The Tigers are averaging 340.1 passing yards per game and Daniels has thrown for 2,573 yards and 25 touchdowns with just three interceptions. He averages 11.5 yards per attempt and completes 73.1% of his passes.

Alabama’s defense might be built to slow him down. The Crimson Tide are 14th in yards per play and 28th in pass defense, only giving up 197.6 passing yards per game. However, that unit prioritizes stopping the run over stopping the pass.

Last game against Tennessee, the Vols ran for just 133, well under their season average of 220.9, but Joe Milton threw for 271 yards. Quinn Ewers threw for 349 yards on Alabama back in September.

All of this points to a rough day for LSU on the ground, but a big day for Daniels through the air. The over/under is set at 277.5 and I’m taking the over. I expect Daniels to throw for just over 300 yards. I’ll say 311.
