LSU's Miles expects quarterback play to improve
HOOVER - LSU coach Les Miles said he expects the team's quarterback play to be "legitimately better" as it competes for a title in the difficult Southeastern Conference Western Division.
Miles said Thursday that four suspended players - including quarterback Anthony Jennings - are still "going through a legal process" after offseason arrests. Jennings, who was charged with unauthorized entry of a residence, and Brandon Harris are the two main candidates for the starting quarterback job.
LSU is coming off a relatively disappointing 8-5 season, including a 4-4 mark in league play. The Tigers return eight offensive starters, including sophomore running back Leonard Fournette, who set an LSU freshman rushing record last season with 1,034 yards and 10 touchdowns.
LSU also returns six defensive starters.
