The Tigers and Sooners have the top two offenses in the nation this season, averaging 554.4 and 554.2 total yards, respectively. LSU’s unit is led by Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Joe Burrow, and Oklahoma has the runner-up for the award, quarterback Jalen Hurts.
Here’s a look at three key matchups in the game that could decide which team wins the Peach Bowl and advances to the CFP National Championship.
What’s better than watching two likely first-round NFL draft talents going head-to-head on the field?
Lamb and Fulton are both going to be selected early in the draft in April, as both are poised to go on to have successful pro careers. But first, both players want to lead their respective team to a national title. And it should be fun watching these two talented standouts face off.
An explosive deep threat, Lamb has 58 receptions for 1,208 yards and 14 touchdowns this season. Meanwhile, Fulton has an interception and 12 pass deflections, and he’d have even more impressive stats if opposing quarterbacks tried to challenge him more often.
However, it likely won’t be just Fulton covering Lamb on some plays. Expect Tigers safety Grant Delpit, another likely first-round NFL draft pick, to join in on the coverage. And that may be tough for Lamb to overcome.
There are some LSU players who are already quite aware of Hurts’ playmaking ability. That’s because the Oklahoma quarterback faced the Tigers twice during his three-year career at Alabama, where he played before transferring to the Sooners this year.
