The LSU Tigers allowed a school-record 34.9 points and 492 yards per game last season, and things haven't gotten much better in 2021.
New defensive coordinator Daronte Jones said he wanted to improve on last season's 4-3 defense and change it to take advantage of his defense's athleticism. But that was easier said than done.
In 2021 the Tigers' defense ranks 77th nationally allowing 404.6 yards per game, including 156.1 yards on the ground, 68th in the country, and 90th in the nation in passing yards allowed with 248.5.
The Tigers' defense also ranks 67th nationally allowing 27.3 points per game.
