LSU names Brandon Harris starting quarterback

Another day, another quarterback competition decided. The LSU Tigers were the most recent team to name their starter at quarterback for at least the first game of the 2015 season.

According to ESPN’s Brett McMurphy, head coach Les Miles named true sophomore Brandon Harris the starting quarterback for the team’s opening game against McNeese State. Harris had been in a battle with Anthony Jennings since the latter returned from his suspension in late July, but the writing was on the wall for Harris to win the starting job.

Harris threw for 452 yards, six touchdowns, and two interceptions last season. Harris did all of this while splitting time with Jennings and only seeing significant playing time in five games for the Tigers.
