LSU will begin spring football practice March 7 and the spring game is slated for April 5, the school announced Thursday.
The Tigers will hold 14 spring practices before the spring game: March 7, 8, 10, 11, 13, 15, 18, 20, 22, 25, 27, 29 and April 1 and 3. A time for the spring game has not been set.
This will be Les Miles’ 10th spring practice as coach. For the first time in years, the Tigers enter drills without a clear favorite for the starting quarterback job, though many think Anthony Jennings has an edge.
Freshman Brandon Harris, sophomore Jennings, redshirt freshman Hayden Rettig, junior Stephen Rivers and senior Rob Bolden are expected to battle to replace Zach Mettenberger as the Tigers starter.
