Here’s the list of players that won’t participate on Monday in Orlando, and LSU is missing plenty.

The Purdue Boilermakers and LSU Tigers meet in the 2023 Citrus Bowl at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. Kickoff is set for 1:00 p.m. ET, and the game will air on ABC. And what on paper looks like a great matchup might be a bit lacking due to more players missing this contest than any other bowl game this season.

The biggest misses might be Aidan O’Connell for Purdue and Jayden Daniels for LSU, both starting quarterbacks throughout the season. O’Connell threw for 3490 yards in 2022, his super-senior season. Daniels has announced he’ll return to Baton Rouge in 2023, but is injured and will miss this matchup.

Here is the latest list of players for the Purdue Boilermakers and LSU Tigers that won’t be participating in the 2022 Citrus Bowl.
