Arkansas Vs LSU Prediction, Game Preview

It's game day and all eyes will be on the quarterback situation for tonight's game against Arkansas. The purple and gold will get a nice peak into part of the future of this offense with both Max Johnson and Garrett Nussmeier taking significant snaps. 

But outside of the question of which quarterback shines, the focus on the field will be how the defense holds up against the best rushing attack in the SEC this season. 

“What Garrett does well is his instincts,” Ed Orgeron said. “He’s quick with the ball, he’s a gunslinger now. He’s going to take chances, he’s going to roll out. He wants to make plays, just like Max, they’re both competitive… Garrett’s loose and will take chances which is good if it works.”
