What you need to know about LSU

A well-balanced attack led the Tigers over the McNeese State Cowboys every single quarter on their way to victory on Saturday as LSU took the game by a conclusive 34-7 score. The game was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point LSU had established a 24-0 lead. QB Max Johnson and WR Kayshon Boutte were among the main playmakers for LSU as the former passed for three TDs and 161 yards and the latter snatched two receiving TDs.

Boutte is looking like the latest in a long line of elite LSU receivers as the sophomore leads the NCAA in receiving touchdowns (five) while ranking fourth in the SEC in receiving yards (179). Dating back to last season, Boutte is averaging an astounding 141.2 yards per game over his last five contests with nine touchdowns over those games. This will be LSU’s first meeting with Central Michigan, but the Tigers have won their last six games versus MAC teams.

Meanwhile, the Chippewas got themselves on the board against the Robert Morris Colonials on Saturday, but Robert Morris never followed suit. CMU claimed a resounding 45-0 victory over Robert Morris at home. The matchup was pretty much decided by the half when the score had already reached 28-0.

Central Michigan coach Jim McElwain is well-acquainted with LSU as he coached in the SEC for three years. From 2015-17, McElwain led the Florida Gators but his teams lost two of three matchups with LSU. The Chippewas are still looking for their first taste of success against the SEC as a whole as they’ve gone 0-10 against the conference all-time.
