No team could be listed more than three times, and LSU made the cut for its games against Miami in the Sept. 2 season opener in Arlington, Texas, and against Alabama on Nov. 3.
Of the Miami game, Goodbread said it’s “one of the true non-conference treats being played in Week 1,” noting the individual matchup to watch is Miami wide receiver Ahmmon Richards vs. LSU cornerback Greedy Williams.
“Richards is among the fastest players in the game, and will be looking to put a frustrating 2017 season of injuries behind him. Williams is next up in LSU’s long line of pro-bound cornerbacks, and in fact had more ball production last year than Carolina Panthers second-round pick Donte Jackson (Williams led the team with 6 INTs and 17 passes defensed),” Goodbread wrote. “Keep an eye on LSU LB K’Lavon Chaisson, who could be primed for a breakout season.”
