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.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- Several LSU true freshmen played key roles in the Tigers' 20-13 overtime loss to Alabama on Saturday. Here is a recap of their performances against the Crimson Tide: S Jamal Adams What he did: With LSU opening in a nickel defense, Adams earned his first career start.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU earned easily its biggest win of the season on Saturday when it rallied past previously unbeaten Ole Miss for a 10-7 victory. The Tigers once again got major contributions from a host of true freshmen in the contest.
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.
Give Anthony Jennings credit for this much: The guy has been a good closer. LSU's sophomore quarterback has endured plenty of criticism this season because of his inconsistent play, and his first three quarters in Saturday's win against Florida gave his detractors additional fodder.
With the obvious exception of tailback Leonard Fournette, whose 140 rushing yards and two touchdowns were key elements in the victory, LSU's true freshmen didn't make as big an impact as usual in Saturday's 30-27 win against Florida.
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.
