The LSU Tigers and Tennessee Volunteers do battle Saturday in a week 6 college football game at Tiger Stadium. The LSU Tigers look to build on their 4-game winning streak. The Tennessee Volunteers look for their first 5-0 start since the 2016 season. 

The LSU Tigers have won their last 5 home games. Jayden Daniels is completing 67.9 percent of his passes for 915 yards, 6 touchdowns and 0 interceptions. Malik Nabers and Brian Thomas Jr. have combined for 476 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns, while Jaray Jenkins has 13 receptions. The LSU Tigers ground game is averaging 196 yards per contest, and Daniels leads the way with 321 yards and 3 touchdowns. Defensively, LSU is allowing 14.8 points and 293.8 yards per game. Jay Ward leads the LSU Tigers with 24 tackles, BJ Ojulari has 3.5 sacks and Micah Baskerville has 1 interception.

The Tennessee Volunteers have won 4 of their last 6 road games. Hendon Hooker is completing 71.7 percent of his passes for 1,193 yards, 8 touchdowns and 0 interceptions. Jalin Hyatt and Cedric Tillman have combined for 571 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns, while Bru McCoy has 13 receptions. The Tennessee Volunteers ground game is averaging 193.5 yards per contest, and Jaylen Wright leads the way with 256 yards and 4 touchdowns. Defensively, Tennessee is allowing 19 points and 407.3 yards per game. Aaron Beasley leads the Tennessee Volunteers with 26 tackles, Elijah Herring has 2 sacks and Kamal Hadden has 2 interceptions.

The Volunteers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 conference games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games in October. The Tigers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games in October. The over is 13-3 in Volunteers last 16 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Tigers last 5 games overall. The Volunteers are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The road team is 6-0-2 ATS in their last 8 meetings.

It’s never easy to win at Tiger Stadium, and you can argue the LSU Tigers are the more balanced team here, given their success on defense. The issue is the Tennessee Volunteers are highly explosive offensively, and it won’t take much to put LSU behind the eight-ball. Also, LSU is fresh off a physical road game against Auburn, while the Vols have had an extra week to prepare for this game. The rest is probably the key edge in this spot for me to lean toward Tennessee. I’ll lay the field goal.
