NCAA Preseason top 25 countdown: #14 LSU Tigers
14. LSU TIGERS
2016 record: 8-4 (5-3 in conference)
Pass yards per game: 190.1
Rush yards per game: 233.0
Points scored per game: 28.3
Points allowed per game: 16.4
In 2016 LSU was another one of the teams that did it with defense for the most part. With RB Leonard Fournette now among the ranks of NFL running Backs the offenses success will be solely on the shoulders of their 2016 leading rusher Derrius Guice.
QB Danny Etling will have to make plays when needed and limit mistakes for this team to make a real push in 2017. Being in the SEC west is always a murderers row when it comes to competition and this year will be no different. LSU has road games at Ole Miss, Florida, Tennessee and Alabama. It will be an uphill battle to make the playoffs.
