BATON ROUGE - The LSU offense has looked differently this year - much of that due to Cam Cameron's influence. One area, in particular, that's looked different is the Tiger quarterback's mobility. Zach Mettenberger has been using his legs to move in the pocket and even run for first downs.

His head coach has noticed.

"I think he's in better shape, I think he's stronger," said Les Miles. "I think that'll continue to improve, and I think he's a creature of habit, like we all are. The more you ask him to do certain things, the better he gets at it. I think that that's what you're seeing."

What do his teammates think about Mettenberger's new-found scrambling acumen? Sports 2's Brian Holland has more with the Tigers.
