LSU hopes jet sweep takes off in Nashville with Irish aboard

first_imgBATON ROUGE – LSU’s offensive players have been trying to be a little coy about a certain new present they have under their tree for Notre Dame in the Music City Bowl in Nashville, Tennessee, on Dec. 30.“It depends on if it will work against their defense,” wide receiver Travin Dural said.“I don’t know if we’ll use it or not,” quarterback Anthony Jennings said.Dural gained a career-high 49 yards rushing on three Jet Sweeps in LSU’s 23-17 win over Texas A&M on Thanksgiving night to close the regular season. With A&M’s defensive players thinking about Dural, Jennings started faking it to Dural out of the Jet Sweep formation and running himself on zone reads. He gained a career high 119 rushing yards on 14 carries. Or Jennings would hand it to tailback Leonard Fournette, who gained 146 yards on 19 carries while A&M’s defense was often trying to focus on Dural and Jennings.“It opened up the run for Leonard even more and for me,” Jennings said. “They can’t cover everything perfectly, so the new sweep helped a lot.”Asking LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, whose offense is currently No. 78 in the nation with 383 yards a game, if he will use the Jet Sweep formation against the Fighting Irish is sort of liking asking a kid who found but one toy in his Christmas stocking if he might be playing with it that morning.“You saw that more in the A&M game,” Cameron said during a recent speaking engagement in New Orleans. “Are we going to be a huge zone read team? I don’t know, but the threat of the zone read helps you in so many ways. It’s a little bit of a balancing act for us because we do believe in some traditional things, and a guy like Leonard benefits from those traditional thoughts where we can put him seven or eight yards behind the quarterback and let him run down hill on people.”Fournette ran mostly uphill in LSU’s game before the A&M game. He gained nine yards on five carries in a 17-0 loss at Arkansas.“We’re going to continue to do that — mesh those two things together,” Cameron said of the Texas A&M game.Miles did not mince words.“I think you may see the Jet Sweep again,” he said this week.Now, Texas A&M was no defensive juggernaut. An LSU offense free of a new gift likely would have been successful as well. The Aggies finished the regular season 102nd in the nation and last in the Southeastern Conference in total defense with a SEC season-high 449 yards allowed a game. They were also last in the SEC and 111th in the nation in rush defense with 223.5 yards allowed a game. And defensive coordinator Mark Snyder was fired days after allowing 491 yards to LSU, which came in averaging 373 yards a game for 11th in the SEC.Notre Dame, meanwhile, is a bit better than the Aggies on defense as it finished 70th nationally with 401.5 yards allowed a game and 61st against the run with 161.7 yards given up a game.“I’m pretty sure it will be in the game plan,” Dural said when pressed. “I knew it would give Anthony more time and give him some easier throws out of play action. We ran it a good bit at A&M. I would say about 20 times.”Jennings completed 12 of 21 passes for 107 yards with a 10-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver John Diarse. It marked just the second time Jennings completed more than 50 percent of his passes when throwing at least 20 times.“And A&M wasn’t expecting me to run that much on set plays,” Jennings said. “Obviously, they were giving us openings. If I see an opening in this game, I will take it.”The formation, which is nothing new in the college game, was put in by Cameron during LSU’s open week following the 17-0 loss at Arkansas in which the Tigers’ 123 total yards were their lowest output in a regular season game since 1975.“It was put in the game plan for the A&M game to give us more deception,” Jennings said.“I was talking to Coach Cam in the open week, and he said he wanted to throw something new at the defense,” Dural said. “I did get excited because I knew it would help the team out, and I knew I would get to run the ball.”There may be a wrinkle to the wrinkle for Notre Dame.“Can I throw out of it?” Dural said, repeating a question. “Yes.” BOWL NOTES: The Tigers will return to practice after the Christmas holidays on Friday and work out again at 8 a.m. Saturday. … LSU will leave Baton Rouge for the Music City Bowl in Nashville at 1 p.m. Saturday and are scheduled to arrive at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel at 2:30 p.m. … The Tigers will practice on Sunday and Monday in Nashville. … Kickoff is at 2 p.m. on Tuesday on ESPN.last_img read more
