Is Les Miles sticking with Anthony Jennings?

After LSU’s loss Saturday to Mississippi State, it was common thought that Brandon Harris had done enough to supplant Anthony Jennings as the Tigers’ starting quarterback.

Harris played less than a full quarter, but almost did more (six completions, 140 yards, two touchdowns) with the offense than Jennings had in three-plus quarters of play (13 completions, 157 yards, one touchdown).

Head coach Les Miles isn’t quick to hand over the offense to Harris though.

As transcribed by, Miles spoke on the quarterback controversy Wednesday:

“We will play them in a like fashion that we have in the past,” Miles said on the SEC coaches teleconference. “I would also say Brandon Harris will get a little bit more playing time.”

How exactly Miles plans to use Harris remains to be seen, but it sounds like Jennings will remain the starter. We’ll learn more when the Tigers take on New Mexico State Saturday at 6:30 p.m. CT at home.
