LSU’s Jayden Daniels, Malik Nabers named SEC Co-Offensive Players of the Week

Jayden Daniels and Malik Nabers had the best games of their careers on Saturday against Mississippi State. Those stats earned them the SEC Co-Offensive Players of the Week award.

Daniels finished the game 30-for-34 for 361 yards and two touchdowns as well as carrying the ball 15 times for 64 yards and two touchdowns. That’s a completion percentage of 88% and a QB rating of 196.8. Those numbers are why many people had Daniels as one of the favorites to win the Heisman before the season started.

Nabers was ranked as a top ten receiver in the country going into last weekend’s game against the Bulldogs and he may have jumped up those rankings quite a few spots after having 13 receptions, 239 yards, and two touchdowns in an incredible performance. He was unstoppable. No matter who Mississippi State sent out to guard him, they got beat.

These two will look to continue their hot streak this week at home against Arkansas.
