Ladies and gentlemen, I present the best freshman in the country. Perkins is the best linebacker in the state of Louisiana since Bobby Boucher. Today he tied a school record with four sacks. Add to that he had two forced fumbles, and what an incredible game he had. He’s the first Power Five player since Chase Young in 2019 to have four sacks and two forced fumbles in one game.
The Tigers had another rough first quarter as they had two turnovers in their first three drives of the ballgame. An interception and a fumble helped give the Razorbacks a lot of hope early. Thankfully, the LSU defense was spectacular.
All week long, LSU’s trip to Fayetteville, Arkansas, was viewed as a trap game for the Tigers. Coming off of a very emotional win over Alabama at home, many speculated that LSU may still be hungover from that win, but LSU avoided the trap with a 13-10 win.
I’m not sure if it was the weather or the inability for receivers to get open, but the passing game was not working today for LSU. Jayden Daniels finished the game 8-15 with 86 yards and an interception.
In Brian Kelly’s first season as the head coach of the LSU Tigers, LSU won the SEC West for the first time since 2019. LSU will take a trip to Atlanta, Georgia, to play for the SEC Championship against Georgia (probably).
