LSU trailed 13-7 at the half, but it outscored MSU 24-3 in the second half. A lot of that has to do with adjustments made at the half, particularly on offense. Kelly said the offense changed up some protections to help quarterback Jayden Daniels get the ball out faster.
“First of all, we went into some seven-man protection, we let the tight end in, some max protection, the ball came out quicker,” he said. “We wanted to make sure that we protected him. We sprinted out on some key situations, came up with some big plays on third down.”
On the defensive side, Kelly said the team made fewer adjustments, understandable given the fact that it played well throughout.
“Defensively, it was no major adjustments,” he said. “We played two trails and got a little too soft, got out of that, but everything else we kind of kept the same with our defensive structures.”
