LSU tight end ranks Oklahoma's defense: Probably the fifth-best defense we've played
In what has become something of an annual tradition, Oklahoma’s defense has once again fallen apart on the big stage.
Although to be fair, no one has shredded a Sooner defense quite like LSU did on Saturday night, as the Tigers set 10 College Football Playoff records in the Peach Bowl:
- Eight touchdowns responsible for — Joe Burrow
- Seven passing touchdowns — Joe Burrow
- 403 passing yards in a half — Joe Burrow
- 493 passing yards — Joe Burrow
- 515 total yards — Joe Burrow
- Four receiving touchdowns — Justin Jefferson
- 227 receiving yards — Justin Jefferson
- 49 points in a half
- 63 points in a game
- 692 total yards by team
Following LSU’s 63-28 win, one of the players responsible for the demolition of Oklahoma’s defense shared his thoughts on the Sooner defense.
According to tight end Thaddeus Moss, who finished the game with four catches for 99 yards and a touchdown, the Sooners don’t stack up with the defenses LSU is accustom to playing in the SEC.

Saying Oklahoma’s defense would rank fifth may even be a bit generous based on what we all saw Saturday night.
