No. 12 LSU has a big matchup this week against No. 7 Auburn. The Tigers have already taken down a top 10 team this season in Miami in Week 1, but an early-season conference upset could be pivotal in gaining some ground in the ever-competitive SEC West.
During the Paul Finebaum show, former Florida QB Tim Tebow weighed in on what LSU needs to do on defense in order to score another upset win 2018.
“When there’s trash around Jarrett Stidham’s legs, he hadn’t been very good,” Tebow said.
“When he has a clean pocket and he’s not pressured, he’s the best quarterback statistically in the SEC. But when he has pressure on him, he’s statistically the worst quarterback in the SEC. It’s kind of a shocking stat because he’s very impressive, he’s got one of the best throwing motions, can make any pass in the game, but I think when you look at that from LSU’s standpoint, OK you want to make this game close, then find a way to pressure Jarrett Stidham. And last year, they pressured him 15 times in the game and they were able to find a way to win because in the second half, Jarret Stidham wasn’t very impressive.”
