Mississippi State vs LSU Preview
Quarterback Myles Brennan will be the starter for LSU this season after Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow was taken first overall in the draft. Brennan has thrown for 600 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions over his first three seasons with the Tigers, and this will be his first opportunity to lead.
LSU no longer has a dominant back after Clyde Edwards-Helaire was taken in the first round, but their rushing attack should still be formidable. Tyrion Davis Price, John Emery and Chris Curry will be a three-headed problem in the backfield for opposing defenses this season, while wide receiver Terrace Marshall should be Brennan’s top target.
Head coach Ed Orgeron and his team have five returning starters from last year’s championship squad, while the Bulldogs have a new head coach in Mike Leach, who left Washington State after the 2019 season. Orgeron thinks that with all the newness, whichever team can make the best adjustments will come out on top.
“Obviously Coach Leach has done a great job wherever he’s at,” the LSU coach said this week. “He presents a challenge. But I think our guys have a pretty good handle of what they’re going to do on offense, what they’re going to do on defense and special teams. But just like any first game, there’s going to be in-game adjustments. There’s going to be new stuff. There will be new plays. There will be new defenses. There will be new personnel. We just have to do a great job of adjusting on the sideline.”
Stanford transfer K.J. Costello was named the Bulldogs’ starter this week. Head and hand injuries kept Costello off the field for the bulk of last season, but in his three years at Stanford, he had 6,151 yards passing, 49 touchdowns and 18 interceptions in 29 starts.
With Leach calling the shots, the Bulldogs promise to have an Air Raid-type offense that relies heavily on the pass. Still, expect senior running back Kylin Hill to have a huge role in the game plan.
When it comes to out-gunning and out-running the Tigers, however, Leach is also hoping for a little good fortune. “What’s tough about them is, you know, there is going to be some change in some of what they do scheme-wise on both sides of the ball,” Leach said, according to The Associated Press. “They have some new faces, too, and I hope those new faces are worse than the guys that left, okay?”
LSU has won four of the last six meetings between these two teams.
