Terrence Magee and the defense were the stars of LSU's 41-3 win against Kentucky on Saturday, but several of the Tigers' true freshmen still played key roles in the victory. Here is a recap of some of their performances: S Jamal Adams What he did: Statistics don't adequately explain the ways Adams impacts a game, but he had his best statistical performance against Kentucky.
Give Anthony Jennings credit for this much: The guy has been a good closer. LSU's sophomore quarterback has endured plenty of criticism this season because of his inconsistent play, and his first three quarters in Saturday's win against Florida gave his detractors additional fodder.
With the obvious exception of tailback Leonard Fournette, whose 140 rushing yards and two touchdowns were key elements in the victory, LSU's true freshmen didn't make as big an impact as usual in Saturday's 30-27 win against Florida.
Florida (3-1, 2-1 SEC) and LSU (4-2, 0-2) might not be ranked, but Saturday's meeting at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium is still a key conference game -- particularly in the SEC East, where Florida is still in the running for a division title.
Brandon Harris used words like "terrible" and "nightmare" when describing his first career start against Auburn on Saturday, but those descriptions actually applied to his entire team's performance in a 41-7 defeat.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- This will become a familiar scenario for No. 15 LSU (4-1, 0-1 SEC) for at least the foreseeable future. Entering Saturday's game against No. 5 Auburn (4-0, 1-0), LSU probably can't afford another division loss if it wants to remain in contention in the SEC West -- much less a spot in the inaugural College Football Playoff.
