LSU passing game showing promise
BATON ROUGE - When LSU has looked to air it out, the results have been promising.
As the 10th-ranked Tigers prepare to host Louisiana-Monroe this Saturday night, evidence is mounting that LSU's young quarterbacks and receivers can provide balance to an offense that was expected to rely heavily on the run.
Miles says sophomore starter Anthony Jennings has performed well and will be asked to do more. Freshman Brandon Harris is gaining confidence after his first five completions - including a touchdown to fellow freshman Malachi Dupre - in a 56-0 victory over Sam Houston State last weekend.
Through two games, LSU has rushed the ball 105 times out of 144 total plays, but has passed for 489 yards and six TDs while rushing for 460 yards and five scores.
