BATON ROUGE – Quarterback Jayden Daniels added to his Heisman campaign on Saturday night, accounting for 606 yards of total offense to lead the No. 19 LSU Tigers past the Florida Gators, 52-35 in Tiger Stadium.

With the win, LSU improves to 7-3 overall and 5-2 in conference play. Florida falls to 5-5 overall and 3-4 in the SEC. The Tigers return to action next Saturday against Georgia State in Death Valley for a 7 p.m. kickoff on the SEC Network.

The best player in college football put on a show in front of 102,321 fans, finishing 17-of-26 passing for 372 yards and three touchdowns, along with 234 yards rushing on 12 carries with two scores on the ground. Daniels showcased once again on the national stage to be an electric force bound for New York.

“If he didn’t win (the Heisman) tonight, then he’s got to be the leading candidate,” said head coach Brian Kelly postgame. “He did something tonight that nobody has ever done. If that doesn’t make you the leading candidate, then maybe the Heisman isn’t for the best player.”

Drove in from Nashville to see in person this QB masterpiece. Never thought I’d witness this type of QB play again after the 2019 season with Joe Burrow.

I’d vote for him. 3 losses or not he’s the best player in 2023.

If LSU had 1/2 a defense they’d be undefeated, and Jayden would be the runaway Heisman winner.

God Almighty! Jayden Daniels is Superman. That combination of 300/200 is scary. I just wish Heisman voters looked at stats only not if their team is undefeated. Daniels is so much a superior athlete compared to the others in contention.
