After starting the season in which he promised to tally 20 sacks like a bull in a china shop, Arden Key has cooled, with just 1.5 of his 8.0 sacks coming over LSU’s last four games. If the Tiger defense is to be at its best, it could use a few quarterback takedowns from Key. Skipper, a 6-foot-10 tackle, will be the man tasked with making sure that doesn’t happen. Skipper is ranked the No. 8 tackle in next year’s draft by NFLDraftScout.com and was Second Team All-SEC last year. The preseason Outland Award Watchlister has anchored an inconsistent line in 2016 that will need to be at its best come Saturday.
BY THE NUMBERS
6.5: Arden Key had 6.5 sacks in LSU’s first four games, but has just 1.5 in the four since.
89: Arkansas ranks 89th in the country in sacks allowed, giving up 22 on the season.
