    LSU struggles mightily before finally putting away the Piggies in the 4th.

    one of the strengths of the Arkansas defense is their run D. they are the:
    #19 rush D in the nation in rushing ypc allowed
    #25 rush D in the nation in rushing ypg allowed

    the best players are on their D are probably:

    #86 DE Trey Flowers (6-4, 243) -- ranked #11 DE for 2015 Draft (#4 in SEC) by NFL Draft Scout
    #42 DE Chris Smith (6-3, 251) -- #17 DE for 2014 (#7 in SEC)
    #14 S Eric Bennett (6-0, 206) -- #18 SS for 2014 (#4 in SEC)
    #8 CB Tevin Mitchel (6-0, 185) -- #14 CB for 2015 (#5 in SEC)

    also, for a freshman starter, #5 LB Otha Peters (6-1, 228) is one to watch -- he was the Rivals #6 ILB, 4-star, #126 on the Rivals150

    for a closer look at how good those two DEs have been this year:

    this season, the two have combined for (11 games)
    --13.5 sacks (8 by Smith, 5.5 by Flowers)
    --23 QB hurries (12 by Smith, 11 by Flowers)
    --23.5 TFL (12 by Flowers, 11.5 by Smith)
    --86 tackles (46 by Smtih, 4O by Flowers)

    compare to Mingo and Sam this season (11 games):
    --11.0 sacks (7 by Sam, 4 by Mingo)
    --13 QB hurries (10 by Mingo, 3 by Sam)
    --17.5 TFL (12 by Sam, 5.5 by Mingo)
    --63 tackesl (32 by Mingo, 31 by Sam)

    and compare to Mingo and Sam last season (14 games):
    --16 sacks (9 Sam, 7 Mingo)
    --12 QB hurries (11 Mingo, 1 Sam)
    --28.5 TFL (15 Mingo, 13.5 Sam)
    --95 tackles (49 Sam, 46 Mingo)

    on offense:

    they feature the reigning First Team All-SEC QB in Tyler Wilson, and he's currently #1 in the SEC in passing yards/game. he's ranked the #3 QB for the next draft behind Geno Smith and Matt Barkley

    they feature a preseason All-SEC First Team WR in #11 Cobi Hamilton, and he's currently #1 in the SEC with 112.5 receiving yards per game. he's ranked the #6 WR (#2 in SEC) for the next draft

    their TE #80 Gragg is doubtful to play with a knee injury, but he's ranked the #1 TE for the next draft and he's averaging 57.8 receiving yards per game this season. he was a preseason 2nd Team All-SEC TE this season behind the TE from Auburn

    their RB #33 Dennis Johnson was preseason First Team All-SEC as the all-purpose player, and he's averaging 102.5 all purpose yards per game this season. he's ranked the #9 RB (#2 in SEC) for the next draft)

    everybody on their OL is over 300 pounds, and the two stars are:
    --G #67 Alvin Bailey -- ranked the #2 OG for 2014 Draft class, was 2nd Team All-SEC last year
    --C #64 Travis Swanson -- ranked the #2 C for 2014 Draft class

    on special teams, they have:
    kickler Zach Hocker -- ranked the #1 kicker for the 2014 draft
    punter Dylan Breeding -- ranked the #1 punter in SEC for the next draft (he was 2nd Team All-SEC last year)

    I'd rather and am expecting total domination by LSU from opening kickoff to final whistle.

    That would be a beautiful thing to see.

    I'm a little afraid of our pass defense... but I'm thinking/hoping/praying that we see some improvement there. And I'm looking forward to watching Mett continue to grow into a the QB we all thought he could be.

    GEAUX Tigers!!
