Penn State vs. LSU

Penn State's ground attack should stifle LSU

Penn State offense vs. LSU defense
• LSU DT Al Woods is a disruptive run-stuffer who is quick. He has size (6-foot-4, 311 pounds) and can help keep blockers off MLB Kelvin Sheppard. On the outside, DEs Rahim Alem and Lazarius Levingston do a nice job of setting the edge and stringing plays out. However, Penn State RB Evan Royster should be productive enough to give the Lions' offense some balance. The Tigers can take too long to shed blocks and get caught overpursing plays. On the flipside, Royster is a patient runner who follows his blocks and can sift through traffic when he runs between the tackles. He's also an excellent cutback runner who reads the flow of the defense and shows good speed when he finds a seam.
