LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger suffered a torn ACL in Friday’s win over Arkansas, and the senior will miss the remainder of the 2013 season.
Mettenberger showed significant improvement in his second year as LSU’s starting quarterback, throwing for 3,082 yards and 22 touchdowns in 2013. The senior thrived under the tutelage of coordinator Cam Cameron, who helped Mettenberger improve his completion percentage by six points.
With Mettenberger sidelined, true freshman Anthony Jennings will assume the top spot on the depth chart.
Jennings is 6 of 10 for 99 yards and one touchdown this season, while rushing for 49 yards and one score on eight attempts.
