  11/29/20 - *Terrace Marshall Jr.Jr/2021, LSU, 6-3, 200 (DS#4 WR) + More +

  LSU receiving leader Terrace Marshall Jr. has decided to opt out for the rest of this season, leaving the Tigers without their leading receiver on the week they're scheduled to host No. 1 Alabama. Marshall, a junior, was one of three highly regarded college players to declare for the draft Sunday with a social media post, along with Texas offensive tackle Samuel Cosmi and Florida State defensive back Asante Samuel Jr. While Marshall's departure will make LSU (3-4) less competitive this season, coach Ed Orgeron has already begun showing signs of accelerating the rebuilding process that essentially began when 14 players from the 2019 national championship team were selected in the 202 NFL draft. LSU freshman tight end Arik Gilbert is second on the team in receiving and freshman receiver Kayshon Bouttee is fourth. - AP College Football

  11/27/20 - Zach Von RosenbergSr/2021, LSU, 6-4, 245 (DS#12 P) + More +

  LSU senior punter Zach Von Rosenberg was named the Ray Guy Award Punter of the Week after his impressive game against Arkansas, the award committee announced Tuesday. Von Rosenberg punted seven times in LSU's 27-24 victory in Razorback Stadium, and five of them were downed inside the 10-yard line. The 6-foot-5, 245-pound Zachary High graduate averaged 48.9 yards per punt with a long of 61 yards. This is the second time this season Von Rosenberg was named for the weekly honor. He was named Punter of the Week after LSU's 44-34 loss to Mississippi State in the season opener, when two of his seven punts were downed inside the 10 and he averaged 49.4 yards per punt. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  11/26/20 - Racey McMathSr/2021, LSU, 6-2, 224 (DS#28 WR) + More +

  Starting LSU wide receiver Racey McMath is not expected to play against Texas A&M after suffering an injury in the Tigers' 27-24 win at Arkansas on Saturday. The 6-foot-3, 224-pound senior pulled up hobbling after running a deep route in the third quarter. After laying down on the sideline and holding his left leg, McMath hopped on one leg as athletic trainers helped him to the training table. He did not return in the game. "Racey's out," LSU coach Ed Orgeron told reporters Monday. "He's very doubtful for the game."

McMath, whom Orgeron spoke highly of during the offseason, has started in all six of LSU's games this season, and he recorded his first career touchdown reception against Arkansas. The double-move in man coverage McMath used made him a wide open target for the 30-yard touchdown pass from TJ Finley, which gave LSU a 10-7 lead with 13:54 left in the second quarter. It was indicative of the kind of receiver Orgeron thought McMath could be, and, at least for this week, the offensive coaching staff will have to dig into a deep, yet young, group of receivers to replace McMath. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  11/25/20 - Jay WardSo/2023, LSU, 6-1, 176 (DS#999 CB) + More +

  While Ward has had some tough moments this season, including during LSU's season-opening loss to Mississippi State, the sophomore was a big factor in the Tigers pulling out a 27-24 win over Arkansas on Saturday. With the Razorbacks in position for a potential game-winning touchdown in the final two minutes, Ward broke up a pass on a third-and-3 from LSU's 27-yard line. On the next play, Ward blocked a potential game-tying field goal to seal the win for the Tigers. - Birmingham News

  11/22/20 - Dare RosenthalrSo/2023, LSU, 6-7, 327 (DS#999 OT) + More +

  The starting left tackle for the season opener, Rosenthal didn't play or appear on the sideline when LSU faced South Carolina on Oct. 24. Sophomore Cam Wire started in his place the last two games. "He's gotten out of the groove," junior left guard Ed Ingram said, "so the biggest thing is probably going to be working pass sets, working run blocks and technical stuff." Orgeron believes Rosenthal's return can help an offensive line that struggled in LSU's last game.

On the road against Auburn, the group allowed four sacks, and LSU averaged 1.2 yards per carry as the program suffered its worst loss since 1996. Rosenthal practiced Tuesday with the second-team offensive line, returning as LSU prepares to face Arkansas this Saturday, the Tigers' first game in three weeks. Orgeron said LSU will decide Friday who starts. In the past, Orgeron has projected Rosenthal, who's 6-foot-7 and 327 pounds, as a potential first-round NFL draft pick. "We're not going to put him in if he's not in shape," Orgeron said, "but he looked like he came back in pretty good shape." - Baton Rouge Advocate

  11/21/20 - *Terrace Marshall Jr.Jr/2021, LSU, 6-3, 200 (DS#4 WR) + More +

  Terrace Marshall wanted to speak to the team. The LSU wide receiver knows he usually doesn't say too much. Most of the time he's a silent star, a quiet pass catcher who leads the Tigers in every receiving statistical category. He also knows his silence is a strength: Whenever he does say something, his point can get across. This was his time to speak: two weeks removed from a brutal 48-11 loss at Auburn; after two bye weeks, including an extra week off after LSU had to indefinitely postpone its game against Alabama because of another coronavirus outbreak; the Monday before LSU's first game in nearly a month, a matchup against a rejuvenated Arkansas program that began the week a 1½-point favorite.

"I just wanted to play a part of my leadership role on the team," Marshall told reporters Tuesday. Marshall earned his respect on the field. His nine touchdown catches in five games puts him within the 20-touchdown, Southeastern Conference single-season record, and it's possible he collects a few other school records before this abridged, 10-game regular season is over. His production - paired with a work ethic that provoked his mother to tell him "we need to chill out" when he trained nonstop during offseason quarantine - is what gained the respect of LSU coach Ed Orgeron. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  11/21/20 - Dare RosenthalrSo/2023, LSU, 6-7, 327 (DS#999 OT) + More +

  Coach Ed Orgeron said LSU might soon reinstate suspended left tackle Dare Rosenthal, who started two games this season. "I don't know yet," Orgeron said Monday. "That's not a definite yet. I think that would help us. I should know something more today or tomorrow if he can be reinstated to the team." LSU indefinitely suspended Rosenthal in mid-October. A week after starting against Missouri, Rosenthal didn't play or appear on the sideline while LSU faced South Carolina. Rosenthal also missed LSU's game against Vanderbilt because of an injury. Sophomore Cam Wire started three games in his place.

Earlier this year, Rosenthal left school during the spring semester and did not participate in the brief spring practice session. He returned this summer, and Orgeron said at the time on 104.5 WNXX-FM Rosenthal had worked through his "off the field problems." In the past, Orgeron has praised Rosenthal, who's 6-foot-7 and 327 pounds, as a potential first-round NFL draft pick. This summer, offensive line coach James Cregg told LSU's in-house radio show he believed Rosenthal "will be a big factor for us." - Baton Rouge Advocate

  LSU wide receiver Racey McMath has accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl, the event announced Monday evening. McMath, a 6-foot-3, 224-pound New Orleans native, is LSU's fifth-leading receiver with 11 catches for 147 yards. The senior from Edna Karr High is also a star special teams player for LSU, a gunner on the punt team who forced a fumble in the team's 45-41 loss at Missouri. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  LSU linebacker Jabril Cox has accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl, the event announced Monday evening. Cox, a 6-foot-4, 231-pound graduate transfer from North Dakota State, is LSU's third-leading tackler with 31 total tackles, adding 4½ tackles for loss and a sack. The senior from Kansas City, Missouri, returned an interception for a touchdown in LSU's season-opener against Mississippi State, and he recovered a fumble against Missouri. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  11/21/20 - Racey McMathSr/2021, LSU, 6-2, 224 (DS#28 WR) + More +

  A targeting penalty in the fourth quarter helped LSU continue its go-ahead drive, scoring with 3:59 left to dispatch Arkansas, 27-24, on Saturday. TJ Finley found Jaray Jenkins for a 13-yard touchdown to put LSU (3-3, 3-3 Southeastern Conference) ahead by three points. It was the capper to a 10-play, 67-yard drive on which Arkansas safety Jalen Catalon was flagged for a 15-yard targeting penalty and ejected.

LSU sealed the game when Jay Ward got his hands on an AJ Reed 44-yard field goal attempt with 1:24 left, the ball falling well short of the crossbar. Finley threw for 271 yards and two scores, the other in the second quarter on a 30-yard pass to Racey McMath. Arkansas (3-5, 3-5) had taken its first lead late in the third quarter when Feleipe Franks led a 5-play, 95-yard drive. Reed's 22-yard field goal early in the fourth put Arkansas ahead 24-20 ahead of Jenkins' final touchdown. Franks finished 17 of 26 for 339 yards with an interception and a touchdown. He ran for 43 yards and a touchdown, as well. Four of Franks' completions went for more than 50 yards. - LSU/AP College Football

  11/03/20 - *Terrace Marshall Jr.Jr/2021, LSU, 6-3, 200 (DS#4 WR) + More +

  LSU wide receiver Terrace Marshall had an uncharacteristically quiet afternoon in what turned into a 48-11 rout against Auburn. Marshall, who entered the game with 21 catches for 512 yards and 9 TDs, finished with just four receptions for 28 yards and a long of 13. The result means Marshall's school-record tying streak consecutive games with a touchdown catch ends at seven, which leaves him tied with two others for the LSU record. With two scores in last week's 52-24 blowout of South Carolina, Marshall tied the mark set by Dwayne Bowe (2005) and matched by Jarvis Landry (2012-13). Marshall entered the game against Auburn leading the Southeastern Conference with 128.0 yards receiving per game. His nine receiving touchdowns topped the league stats and was second in the FBS ranks. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  11/03/20 - Liam ShanahanrSr/2021, LSU, 6-4, 304 (DS#11 C) + More +

  Do not blame LSU defensive coordinator Bo Pelini for this one. Yes, the defense allowed more than 500 yards for the third time this season as the Tigers lost 48-11 to unranked Auburn Saturday afternoon, but Pelini's unit blanked Auburn in the first quarter and kept LSU in the game into the second quarter. And, hey, that's improvement for that defense. It was LSU's offense, particularly its offensive line, that stunk like old smashed pumpkins in the sun. The Tigers mustered just 32 rushing yards on 27 carries. Tailback John Emery Jr. was LSU's leading rusher with 21 yards on nine carries. Tailback Tyrion Davis-Price, who rushed for 135 yards last week in a 52-24 win over South Carolina, gained zero on three carries. LSU's offensive line allowed four sacks and five hurries. "We got punched in the face," center Liam Shanahan said. "Absolutely killed. It stings. We got embarrassed on a national stage. We just never really got anything going through the entire game." - Daily Advertiser

  10/27/20 - Myles BrennanrJr/2022, LSU, 6-3, 210 (DS#10 QB) + More +

  If Myles Brennan is healthy Saturday, he has LSU's starting quarterback spot locked down - but if there's any measure of doubt, he's staying on the sidelines while his team plays Auburn. "If Myles is healthy, he's our first team quarterback," LSU coach Ed Orgeron said. "But I'm not putting him in if he's not 100 percent." Brennan tore his abdomen muscle when Missouri safety Tyree Gillespie collided hard with his shoulder in the first quarter of the LSU-Missouri game on Oct. 10. He played through the pain that day but did not return to practice once it was over. Even before the game against Florida was postponed, Brennan was not set to start. When LSU faced South Carolina on Oct. 24, freshman TJ Finley took the field instead of Brennan. Finley completed 17 of 21 pass attempts for 265 yards and also rushed for 24 yards. "I was so proud, so pleased with TJ's poise," Orgeron said. "He looked like a veteran out there." Despite his good game, if Brennan is ready, Finley will move to backup quarterback. This week will be all about evaluating Brennan while prepping Finley and freshman quarterback Max Johnson for the possibility Brennan isn't ready. - Montgomery Advertiser
