LSU needs to see improvement in running game in upcoming season

The 2021 college football season is right around. the corner, and it’s safe to say LSU is going to be a much better football team than the 2020 team.

Finishing the season with a 5-5 overall record surely gives you the sense that it can only be up from there.

Head coach Ed Orgeron has been able to put together many missing pieces from last year back together and get about as close of a championship-contending team as he could get, but one area that still leaves room for improvement is LSU’s running game.

The Tigers ranked No. 110 in FBS in rushing yards per game, and No. 113 in yards per carry. Although the Tigers can find success this season off the passing game alone, it’s imperative to see a significant difference in numbers if LSU is to compete for any type of title in the near future.

The current running backs on the roster include John Emery Jr., Tyrion Davis Price, Tre Bradford, Corren Norman, Josh Williams, Nick Demas, Armoni Goodwin and Corey Kiner.

Emery and Davis-Price are largely expected to lead the way, but the position will be one to watch as LSU aims to return to its former glory.
