Greg McElroy watched on Saturday as LSU freshman LB Harold Perkins wreaked absolute havoc in the Arkansas backfield.

Even playing with the flu, Perkins had a huge game, forcing 2 fumbles that helped LSU’s defense bail out the offense in a 13-10 victory in Fayetteville.

After the game, McElroy took to Twitter to wonder if Perkins deserves to be in the Heisman Trophy conversation due to his disruptive play:

Here’s a look at a pair of forced fumbles Perkins had. The first play, he runs down Arkansas QB Malik Hornsby, who has legitimate track star speed:

LSU clinched a spot in the SEC Championship Game with a win and a loss by Ole Miss against Alabama.

If the Tigers are going to pull off the upset of Georgia in that game, Perkins is going to need to continue being a game wrecker for the LSU defense. We’ll see how he progresses the final 2 weeks of the regular season.
