The LSU Tigers have an opportunity to get one step closer to bowl eligibility, to do so they need to beat Arkansas. The Razorbacks earned their bowl eligibility last week after their three-point win over Mississippi State.

With the loss of Kayshon Boutte earlier this season, more focus has been on the running game and playing complementary football. Davis-Price has been on a mission over the last four games on the ground. Even going as far as setting the school rushing record against the Florida Gators.

Edge: Ty Davis-Price

On a pure one-for-one basis the edge goes for Ty Davis-Price. He has the better numbers and has really come on strong since the Kentucky game. After starting the year with just 141 yards in five games, Davis-Price has tallied 591 yards over the last four games. That breaks down to 6.03 yards per attempt.

TDP has been a major driving force for the offense despite three of the four games resulting in a loss. With no Kayshon Boutte, TDP has stepped up for Ed Orgeron’s offense.
