ON THE TROJANS OFFENSE
A first-team Sun Belt pick in 2016, Silvers, an accurate thrower, makes the Trojans go. He averages 271.0 passing yards a game, hitting 66.2 percent of his attempts. Chunn has 295 rushing yards (4.9 yards per carry) and averages 106.5 all-purpose yards a game.
ON THE TROJANS DEFENSE
Troy tops the Sun Belt and ranks 14th in the FBS in rushing defense in allowing 95.5 yards a game, which will be a challenge for an LSU offensive line that has struggled the past two games. The Trojans, however, are 108th in giving up 10.6 yards per reception.
