What can LSU do for an encore in 2020? LSU Head Coach Ed Orgeron enters his 4th season at the helm knowing he has nowhere to go but down. The Tigers are coming off one of the best seasons ever in College Football. LSU hopes to win double-digit games in 2020 and compete for the SEC West Division Championship. Will that be enough to satisfy the Tiger faithful? LSU only returns three starters on Offense including one starter on the Offensive Line. Junior Myles Brennan will take over at Quarterback and has some big shoes to fill. So do sophomore Running Backs Chris Curry and Tyrion Davis-Price. The Wide Receiving Unit returns two starters in juniors Ja’Marr Chase and Terrace Marshall Jr. Look out for freshman Tight End Arik Gilbert to have a huge season in 2020. LSU returns five starters on Defense including two starters on the Defensive Line. The Defensive Line will be led by a pair of Defensive Tackles in senior Glen Logan and junior Tyler Shelvin. The Linebacking Unit doesn’t return any starters and will need several experienced returnees to step up. Look out for senior Jabril Cox (North Dakota State transfer) to have a huge season. The Secondary returns three starters and will be anchored by sophomore Cornerback Derek Stingley, Jr. and senior Safety JaCoby Stevens. The Special Teams Unit returns intact as both sophomore Kicker Cade York and senior Punter Zach Von Rosenberg are back. LSU has high expectations for 2020. Don’t expect a major drop off as the Tigers should win double-digit games despite their tough schedule. LSU has road games at Florida, Auburn, and Texas A&M. LSU will be in every game and will have a great season just not the greatest season ever. I predict LSU to go 11-2 in 2020.
