LSU (1-1) returns to Tiger Stadium on Saturday night to open SEC play against Mississippi State (2-0). Kickoff is set for 5pm CT on ESPN.

LSU's all-time record against Mississippi State is 76-36-3 with the Tigers winning last year's matchup in Starkville 28-25. Preview, per

The matchup will mark the first meeting between LSU coach Brian Kelly and MSU coach Mike Leach.

Quarterback Jayden Daniels has led LSU to eight consecutive touchdown drives, coming off another impressive performance against Southern, going 10-for-11 for 137 yards and four touchdowns (3 pass, 1 rush) in just over a quarter of play.

His three years of starting experience is noticeable, Kelly says, when he comes to the sideline, calling him “extremely coachable.” Daniels, who leads the SEC in passer rating among qualifying quarterbacks (177.31), will start his 32nd FBS game on Saturday, experience that will be an asset for the Tigers as the SEC schedule kicks off.

“I think you start with efficiency with Daniels,” Kelly said Monday. “His ability to keep eight drives alive consecutively and turn them into touchdowns – I think that’s a great place to start. There’s still growth there, and he would tell you that if he was standing here.”

Any possibility of getting Oregon or Miles back? Totally insane to not have gotten the UL Coach.
