Editor's note: We broke down LSU's need to improve at quarterback as part of our SEC blog's positional series two weeks ago. This week on the LSU blog, we continue our position-by-position look at the 2015 Tigers.
Terrence Magee and the defense were the stars of LSU's 41-3 win against Kentucky on Saturday, but several of the Tigers' true freshmen still played key roles in the victory. Here is a recap of some of their performances: S Jamal Adams What he did: Statistics don't adequately explain the ways Adams impacts a game, but he had his best statistical performance against Kentucky.
Florida (3-1, 2-1 SEC) and LSU (4-2, 0-2) might not be ranked, but Saturday's meeting at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium is still a key conference game -- particularly in the SEC East, where Florida is still in the running for a division title.
Brandon Harris used words like "terrible" and "nightmare" when describing his first career start against Auburn on Saturday, but those descriptions actually applied to his entire team's performance in a 41-7 defeat.
