The LSU Tiger football team is ranked 4th in the nation thanks in large part to their 4th ranked defense. Leading the way are defensive ends Sam Montgomery and Barkevious Mingo. The duo nag one another like an old married couple, couldn't be more different, couldn't be more close, and on the field make up the fiercest DE tandem in America. They go together like peanut butter and jelly.

Montgomery sports a strange obsession with Sonic the Hedgehog (Sega Genesis' video game answer to Nintendo's Mario), while Mingo enjoys skydiving. Sam is outgoing and bombastic, while Barkevious is a bit more reserved and soft spoken.
