Brian Kelly discusses Logan Diggs’ LSU debut

LSU fans got their first look at one of their new running backs against Grambling on Saturday night. Logan Diggs, a Notre Dame transfer, got his first carries as a Tiger and he did not disappoint in the slightest.

Diggs led the Tigers with 15 carries, 115 yards and a touchdown on the ground as LSU trounced the Grambling Tigers 72-10 in Baton Rouge. While that performance may have come as a surprise to LSU fans, it did not shock Brian Kelly in the slightest.

“We knew what we were getting with Logan,” Kelly said. “He played for me at Notre Dame and I knew what we were going to get from him. It was just a matter of getting him healthy. We weren’t going to play him unless he felt really good. He felt good and he had a good week of practice.”

Watching Diggs run the ball was a welcome sight after LSU couldn’t get anything going in the run game against Florida State other than Jayden Daniels.
