Quarterback Brandon Harris took the majority of the first-string snaps during LSU’s scrimmage Saturday in Tiger Stadium and was “more explosive,” coach Les Miles said Sunday.
Here are more nuggets from the coach’s press conference Sunday that opened LSU’s Media Day:
- The stats: LSU quarterbacks went 20-for-34 passing for about 200 yards in the scrimmage with five drops from receivers. LSU ran the ball for 197 yards on 42 carries. The Tigers scored five touchdowns in eight possessions, the coach said.
- The QBs: Harris received about “a dozen” more snaps with the starters than Anthony Jennings. The first string was expected to get about 50 snaps during the 100-play scrimmage, Miles said earlier in the week. No. 3 QB Justin McMillan went 2 for 3 and tossed a 50-yard TD. “Brandon obviously was a little bit more explosive. Anthony more veteran,” Miles said.
- Injury update: WR Trey Quinn was “nicked” during LSU’s scrimmage, and WR Travin Dural did not participate in the scrimmage after suffering an injury earlier in the week. Both players should return to practice by Tuesday, the coach said. He called either injury “not serious.”
