Breaking Down The 2015 LSU Football Schedule

The 2014 LSU Tigers finished with a respectable 8-5 record. Led by numerous underclassmen, namely freshman running back, Leonard Fournette, LSU proved it had the playmakers needed to compete in the ultra-competitive SEC West division. Fournette averaged 126.8 total yards per game and scored eight total touchdowns. Left tackle La’El Collins, who was responsible for opening up many running lanes for Fournette, will likely be a first round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. His presence will be sorely missed next season. LSU’s quarterback slot remained unsettled throughout the season, but its strong defensive play helped cover up some of its shortcomings. LSU’s defense, which allowed just 306 total yards per game, was statistically the best defense in the SEC. The SEC West features numerous top defenses, but LSU’s ball-hawking defense proved to be the top of the class.

Entering the 2015 season, LSU will need stability from the quarterback position. Jennings and freshman quarterback Brandon Harris will likely compete to start, but neither player possesses much upside. Wide receiver Travin Dural decided to return, which should be a major boost. Dural led LSU with 758 receiving yards and seven touchdowns last season. Several key players, namely Collins, cornerback Jalen Collins, and linebacker Kwon Alexander declared for the NFL Draft, so LSU will need to replace these players. LSU’s recruiting class ranked 10th-best in college football, so hopefully some fresh faces will help keep LSU competitive in the SEC.
