BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — We are the midway point of the college football season, and two LSU football players were listed on the AP midseason All-America team.
Quarterback Jayden Daniels and Wide Receiver Malik Nabers were selected on Wednesday, Oct. 18. Daniels is on the second-team All-American team, while Nabers is on the first-team midseason All-American team.
Daniels continues to be productive in this high-powered LSU offense as he leads the nation in total offense (401.3), pass efficiency, and rushing yards by a quarterback (515), according to LSU Athletics. Daniels missed out on being a first-team All-America selection at the halfway point as Washington quarterback Michael Penix got the nod over the senior quarterback.
Daniels finds himself in the Heisman discussion as he continues to play at a high level every week.
On the season, Daniels has 2,294 passing yards, 22 touchdowns and three interceptions. According to LSU Athletics, Daniels has also been recognized as the SEC Offensive Player of the Week three times, which is the most of any player in the conference.
One of Daniels’ favorite targets this season has been Nabers. Nabers has put himself into the category of being one of the best wide receivers in college football.
According to LSU Athletics, Nabers currently leads the nation in receiving yards with 860 on 52 receptions. His best game of the year came against Mississippi State where he finished the contest with 13 catches for 239 yards.
The two LSU offensive stars will look to continue their momentum as the Tigers will host Army at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21.
