The Arkansas Razorbacks will run all over LSU’s porous defense

LSU gives up almost 400 yards per game through the air and on the ground. The Razorbacks are going to be salivating at the thought of taking their overpowering and overwhelming run game at LSU’s defense.

The Hogs are fourth in the nation in rushing yards per game with 244.3 yards per game. Excluding the Georgia game, the Razorbacks have not rushed for fewer than 200 yards in a game at all season.

No one has been able to stop the run game of the Razorbacks (except for Georgia). The four-pronged attack of KJ Jefferson, Dominique Johnson, Trelon Smith and Raheim “Rocket” Sanders has been incredibly effective and fun to watch.

There’s no reason to think that a banged-up and reeling Tigers defense will be the first to crack the code of Arkansas impregnable run game.

If Smith is having a rough game, Rocket is there to pick up the slack. The Hogs’ RPO is deadly because Jefferson has the ability to burn defenses with his legs or his arm.
