LSU DC Aranda takes a light-hearted approach with nightmare matchup
The Citrus Bowl features a very interesting matchup — as No. 19 LSU squares off with No. 15 Louisville.
LSU and defensive coordinator Dave Aranda will be tasked with slowing down an offense averaging an NCAA-high 45.3 points per game.
Oh…and there’s also that Lamar Jackson guy to contain. The Heisman Trophy-winning signal-caller has accrued 4,928 yards and 51 total touchdowns.
When asked about the offense Louisville is equipped with, Aranda had this to say:
Aranda on L'ville: "No. 1 offense in the country. Quarterback is a really good player. So, you know, it’s Merry Christmas to everybody" #LSU

Using a Christmas analogy, Aranda will surely hope to garner as many presents (turnovers) as possible — whilst minimizing the lumps of coal (Jackson touchdowns) that may come his way.
