14 LSU Seniors to Play in Final Home Game vs. Arkansas

Friday afternoon, Arkansas squares off with LSU in what is the Tigers’ final home game. It will be the last time many of the LSU players strap up the pads in Death Valley. The Tigers have eleven seniors and several underclassmen who will most likely leave early for the NFL draft.

Key seniors include: quarterback Zach Mettenberger, fullback J.C. Copeland, offensive guard Josh Williford, linebackers Lamin Barrow and Tahj Jones, and safety Craig Loston.

Zach Mettenberger is not excited for his college career to reach its conclusion.

“Uh, it’s pretty depressing. Another chapter in a lot of guys’ lives is passing by. But we are going to enjoy it, and hopefully get a win out there. You spend so much time with all these guys, it’s going to be tough to not be around them every day.”

LSU head coach and former Michigan lineman, Les Miles claims that you never forget your final home game.

“You got your name called aloud. It was a cold day in November, and it was a wonderful time in Michigan Stadium. That was the last time that I played in Michigan Stadium, and that’s really the similarity of Senior Day here. This will be the last time that they will play in Tiger Stadium, and it will be emotional for a number of guys, I promise.”
