When the LSU defense needed a big play, he stepped up. With 12 minutes left in the fourth quarter, LSU was clinging to a four-point lead, and Auburn had driven all the way into the red zone. On second and goal from the 10-yard line, Auburn drew up a trick play with former LSU Tiger, Koy Moore.
Moore was brought in motion on a jet sweep and the plan was for him to throw a touchdown pass, but the LSU defense had other plans. Micah Baskerville pressured Moore on the throw and after Moore lofted the ball into the air, Perkins came down with a huge interception to end the Auburn drive.
Perkins is so far ahead of where he should be as a true freshman. He looks like a guy that has been playing for a couple of years and should be a Freshman All-SEC selection at the end of the year.
