1.) Anthony Jennings is going to be the LSU offense’s #1 option at quarterback for the foreseeable future. There was never a moment during the game where he looked indecisive or didn’t know what to do with the ball. It’s obvious he and wide receiver Travin Dural have a special connection. That’s a must for a QB and his top receiving option.

While his completion percentage wasn’t amazing, going just 7 of 13, he did start out 6 of 9 with incompletions beginning to pile up only after the game was in hand. At that point, Jennings began to lean on the Dural connection a little harder, throwing up low-risk deep throws hoping Dural could come down with them.

Jennings will start unless his progress begins to stagnate, which it shows no signs of doing considering his play and his competitiveness with Brandon Harris right behind him. His improved play is encouraging with the SEC slate looming just around the corner.
