Justin Jefferson has never been a fan of cold weather. But when the temperatures dipped for Saturday’s 6:30 p.m. kickoff against Arkansas, Jefferson’s game elevated to new levels.
The sophomore receiver went for a career high 117 yards on six catches, including his third touchdown of the season, in LSU’s 24-17 win over the Razorbacks, despite numbness induced by low-30s temperatures.
“I couldn’t feel my fingers or my toes,” Jefferson said. “It was a little difficult catching the ball and running.”
