09/03/17 - For the last six weeks, LSU coach Ed Orgeron closed practice to the media to give new offensive coordinator Matt Canada a cloistered atmosphere to refine his exotic pre-snap motions, jet sweeps and misdirection. But even though the retooled LSU offense looked explosive and deadly efficient in bruising BYU 27-0 on Saturday night in the relocated Texas Advocare Kickoff at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, it was the No. 12 Tigers' suffocating defense that should be sounding alarm bells throughout the SEC. Defensive coordinator Dave Aranda's band of marauders -- with contributions from five freshmen -- did not allow BYU to cross midfield. The Cougars' deepest penetration was their own 47-yard line -- twice -- and each time LSU forced BYU quarterback Tanner Mangum into a harried, third-down incompletion. It's tough to lose when your opponent doesn't cross the 50.
The scariest thing for LSU's future opponents? The Tigers' best defensive player -- defensive end Arden Key -- is almost ready to come back from shoulder surgery. "The fundamentals, the technique are all there, and naturally those guys play hard," said BYU coach Kalani Sitake, whose Cougars were held to 97 total yards in 38 plays, an anemic 2.6-yard average. "That's one of the best defenses I've seen in college football." The 27-0 final score did not truly reflect LSU's dominance. The Tigers outgained BYU 479-97, and held a 26-6 edge in first downs and 41:54-18:06 advantage in time of possession. LSU held BYU to minus-5 yards rushing, the fewest allowed by a Tiger defense since a 1982 game against Ole Miss when the Rebels were limited to minus-50 yards rushing. - The Sports Xchange
