Freshman QB leads LSU into Outback against Iowa

TAMPA, Fla.- No. 14 LSU has no qualms about Anthony Jennings making his first college start against Iowa in the Outback Bowl.

The true freshman quarterback came off the bench to lead a 99-yard drive in the closing minutes of the Tigers' regular season finale to beat Arkansas, so LSU coach Les Miles feels his offense will be in good hands against the Hawkeyes on Wednesday.

Miles says poise is one of Jennings' strongest assets, which is one of the reasons LSU didn't blink when senior Zach Mettenberger, who's thrown for nearly 5,800 yards in his career, injured his knee with his team trailing 27-24 and seemingly running out of time against Arkansas.

Kickoff for the Outback Bowl is set for January 1 at Noon.
