Brian Kelly’s debut as head coach of LSU comes after a complete overhaul of the coaching staff and roster as he hopes to rebuild the Tigers into an SEC household name yet again following two straight seasons without a winning record.
Key Matchup: The Trenches
Florida State failed to cover in Week 0 of college football, beating FCS Duquesne 47-7. Yes, I know it’s just an FCS team, but the Seminoles allowed just 164 yards and one third down conversion during that game, which should be a good indicator regardless of their defense and what they can accomplish in the trenches.
The FSU defense should keep things close against an LSU, who are dealing with uncertainty on their offensive line, something that Brian Kelly already identified as a weakness heading into tonight’s game.
LSU has less than 40% of snaps returning to their offensive line this year, which could cause problems for their very mobile quarterback in Jayden Daniels, who gained over 1,000 scramble yards and 552 designed yards last season in Baton Rouge.
“LSU will field true freshman Will Campbell at the blindside tackle position. Left guard Tre’Mond Shorts steps up in competition after previously playing at East Tennessee State. Garrett Dellinger had 228 snaps at tackle last season but is expected to play center after never logging a snap of experience.” – via Action Network
Key Trends for tonight’s game
Florida state has won its past four meetings with LSU.
The Seminoles returned their entire starting secondary this season, led by safety Jammie Robinson.
LSU is 14-5 all-time in games played in the Superdome, just 80 miles from campus.
In the regular season, the Tigers have gone 10-2 in the dome.
LSU’s 2003, 2007 and 2019 national championships were won in the Superdome.
As the line indicates, this game should remain close. The favorites have DOMINATED the first week of college football and climbed out to a 26 -1 start. I highly doubt tonight’s game in New Orleans will be any different.
