The Tigers will not be able to stop Arkansas QB KJ Jefferson

Yes, KJ Jefferson has not been as flashy in recent games, statistically speaking. But LSU has not had any real success against dual threat quarterbacks this season.

Against Ole Miss QB Matt Corral, LSU allowed him to complete more than 80% of his passes and accumulate 200+ yards of offense by himself.

Alabama QB Bryce Young tore up the Tigers for 300+ passing yards. The Tigers were able to eliminate Young’s run game, as he finished with negative rushing yards.

There’s reason to believe Jefferson will give LSU all kinds of problems. The young man stands at an imposing 6’3″ 245 lbs.

Alabama’s Young is 6’0,” 194 lbs. Ole Miss’ Corral is similarly listed at 6’0,” 200 lbs. The Tigers just simply haven’t faced someone with the physical gifts of Jefferson.

Even if LSU is able to subdue Jefferson, the Razorbacks will find ways to get WR Treylon Burks the ball.
