Clapp deserves major credit for the way he’s gutted through three games nursing an ankle injury, but he’ll have a whole different kind of beast to deal with at Auburn this week. Adams is a load in the middle who can make plays in the backfield either via a straight bull rush or by using his quickness to penetrate inside. He’s one of the leaders along a defensive front billed as Auburn’s greatest strength this season, but one that so far has only generated five sacks, ranking middle of the pack in the SEC. If Clapp and Co. can continue to protect Danny Etling while opening up holes for Leonard Fournette, LSU will move the ball just fine. If Adams can disrupt things the point of attack, it forces LSU to get more creative, which doesn’t always work out so well.
By the Numbers:
0 — LSU’s offensive line, despite four starters leaving the lineup at one point or another, didn’t allow a sack last week
12 — Auburn allowed Leonard Fournette to rush for 228 yards while averaging 12 yards per carry last season
