Last season, LSU defensive and special-teams units created more short-field opportunities than any other units in college football. The Tigers started 24 percent of their drives in opponent territory in 2010, and only 11 percent of their drives from inside their own 20-yard line. Those were the best marks in the country and the main reason why LSU was able to win 11 games last season with a less-than-stellar offense. No team leaned as heavily last year on its defense and special teams to win, and that will be the key again this Saturday if LSU is to knock off Oregon.
