LSU Tigers football statistical leaders

LSU Athletics logo.svg

The LSU Tigers football statistical leaders are individual statistical leaders of the LSU Tigers football program in various categories,[1] including passing, rushing, receiving, total offense, defensive stats, and kicking. Within those areas, the lists identify single-game, single-season, and career leaders. The Tigers represent Louisiana State University in the NCAA's Southeastern Conference.

Although LSU began competing in intercollegiate football in 1893,[1] the school's official record book does not generally include full statistics before the 1950s, as records from that period are often inconsistent and incomplete. Records set before then are occasionally included in the lists below if the statistics are available, but they generally are not.

These lists are dominated by more recent players for several reasons:

  • Since 1949, seasons have increased from 10 games to 11 and then 12 games in length.
  • The NCAA did not allow freshmen to play varsity football until 1972 (with the exception of the World War II years), allowing players to have four-year careers.
  • Bowl games only began counting toward single-season and career statistics in 2002.[2] The Tigers have played in a bowl game every year since then, giving recent players an extra game per season to accumulate statistics. Similarly, the Tigers have played in the SEC Championship Game five times since it was first played in 1992.
  • The Tigers have eclipsed 5,000 total offensive yards in a season nine times in school history, all of them coming in the 21st century.[1]

These lists are updated through the end of the 2017 season.
