Wednesday’s Outback Bowl between LSU and the Iowa Hawkeyes is drawing near after a long layoff for both teams, each side is as eager to get back on the field as their respective fan bases are to see them on the gridiron.
Les Miles and Kirk Ferentz had their joint press conference today to speak about their two clubs that will meet at noon on New Year’s Day from Tampa, Fla. in Raymond James Stadium.

Two of the more telling quotes you’ll hear in this clip that’s 4:42 long is Ferentz saying he wished LSU had three days to prepare for his team, rather than three weeks.
Secondly, Miles on his freshman Anthony Jennings who is making his first career start for the injured Zach Mettenberger, “The greatest characteristic of Anthony Jennings is poise. The confidence of the team when he goes under center doesn’t change.”
