Hogs D finds success. Hogs 31, Gators 13. — Brian Baer 11/5/16
The Hogs D did find a ton of success, and played out of their mind all day against the Gators. After surrendering an SEC and school record 543 rushing yards to Auburn two weeks ago, the unit held the Gators to just 12 yards rushing on the day.
The changes Bret Bielema and Robb Smith employed…moving Jeremiah Ledbetter outside to end, inserting McTelvin Agim at D-Tackle and using Randy Ramsey as a fifth lineman, helped the Hogs set the edge better. If you recall, the Hogs have used that five man front the past two seasons to stifle Leonard Fournette and the Tigers. Can they pull it off again Saturday?
Regardless, Brian we hope you show off your new RBN Tailgate Tumbler to your Bama and Auburn buddies. We always appreciate your commentary on the blog.
For those of you new to our weekly prognostication shenanigans, see our contest rules here.
Here we go:
Walking on Sunshine: Ed Orgeron brings his one dimensional Tigers to Fayetteville Saturday. LSU ranks 110th nationally in passing yards per game (172.4), and if last week is any indication, the Razorbacks will stack the front, and sell out to stop Fournette from running wild. It works…for the third year in a row. Arkansas 20, LSU 16.
HogBaller: I’ve got a feeling the Tiger offense gets it going against Arkansas, with Fournette leading the way. Can the Hogs keep the momentum going and stay perfect in November? LSU 30, Arkansas 24.
SlobberHog23: Coach O can sell. I once bought a Hummer because of him. But I’m not buying these Tigers and their ‘revived’ offense. This will be a battle, but the Hogs prevail in a low scoring game. The ‘Pride of David Bazzel‘ remains on the hill. Arkansas 17, LSU 10.
TipsterHog: Coach O rips his shirt off every time Leonard Fournette scores a touchdown. He may need to bring an extra suitcase. LSU 28, Arkansas 17.
