Report: LSU Will Start Anthony Jennings At Quarterback Against Wisconsin

While the quarterback situation at Alabama has received more attention, the Crimson Tide are hardly the only SEC school with a question as to who will start at QB during the team's season opener. For instance, LSU has a quarterback controversy, as the Tigers have to decide whether sophomore Anthony Jennings or freshman Brandon Harris will start the team's game against Wisconsin.

Fortunately for Tigers fans, a report from the Times-Picayune put the question to rest, as Jennings has reportedly been tabbed the team's starter.

LSU sophomore Anthony Jennings will start at quarterback for the Tigers in their season opening game against Wisconsin here Saturday, a source close to LSU told | The Times-Picayune.

Jennings, a 6-feet-2, 216-pounder from Marietta, Ga., edged out freshman Brandon Harris after putting in a strong week of practice, the source added.

Both Jennings and Harris will try to replace Zach Mettenberger, who threw for 3,082 yards and 22 touchdowns last season. While Harris will not start the game, Tigers head coach Les Miles has said that both quarterbacks will get reps. LSU will take on Wisconsin at 9 p.m. on Saturday night at NRG Stadium in Houston.
