LSU LB calls out Oklahoma's offense before Peach Bowl

LSU LB calls out Oklahoma's offense before Peach Bowl

For LSU it would be as close to a home game as a team can get in a playoff game.

Burrow's record-setting season for the SEC Tigers Tigers (13-0) won him the Heisman Trophy by a record margin. He also expressed extreme confidence in LSU's ability to shut down the Sooners.

"The o-line's not great, the back's not great, but they still make it work", Queen said. "Jalen Hurts is a great quarterback.I feel like if we can just get the ball out of Jalen's hands and try to make other people make plays, I feel like our defense is gonna make plays in space".

Faulk has served as director of player development for two years, returning to his alma mater to help the football program in a variety of ways behind the scenes. Hurts was the Heisman runner-up as he led the Sooners (12-1) to the Big 12 title. Led by freshman cornerback Derek Stingley Jr., who has six interceptions this season, while Queen and safety JaCoby Stevens combined for 7.5 sacks on the season.

While Queen did have some nice things to say about both CeeDee Lamb and Jalen Hurts, calling them both "great", the message in his short soundbite seemed fairly clear.

On the ground game note, the Tigers have faced just one ground game ranked higher than the Sooners in Ole Miss, which put up 402 yards on the ground and averaged 9.1 per rush against the Tigers earlier this year.

For the dueling hype videos, LSU's video has run-through-a-wall vibes, while Oklahoma's is more like a documentary trailer for a chronicle of the team this season. LSU is favored by 13.5 points on Fanduel and DraftKings, while Bovada has them listed as 14-point favorites.
