John Pennington posts a chart of how LSU’s running game has performed this season. Tell me you expected the Georgia defense to show out like this:
School LSU Yds/Carry Opp. Rush Def. TCU 4.10 20th (3.21) UAB 4.47 92nd (4.63) Kent State 8.30 116th (5.68) Auburn 5.18 65th (4.12) Georgia 2.14 42nd (3.79) Miss. State 5.72 84th (4.43) Florida 4.49 20th (3.21)
Yeah, me neither.
I will say some of that is likely due to LSU not having a running quarterback and to Hill not being much of a threat to bounce things outside, both areas where Georgia has struggled at times. Still, giving up better than two yards less per run than Florida is pretty damned impressive in my book.
