Per ESPN: LSU coach Les Miles isn't ready to outright abandon the Tigers' two-quarterback system after just one game.

Miles kept his promise of playing two QBs in the season opener against Wisconsin last weekend, as sophomore Anthony Jennings got most of the action while freshman Brandon Harris got in for one series late in the second half.

The 12th-ranked Tigers meet Sam Houston State of the FCS for the first time in Saturday night's home opener. With LSU being a heavy favorite, the matchup could present an opportunity to refine the passing attack.

It could also mean more playing time for Harris.

Miles said Tuesday that "right now," Jennings is No. 1 in the rotation, having demonstrated he can come through with big plays against a solid Big Ten defense when the Tigers really needed it.

Complete Preview
quote: No chance of an upset here, better chance LSU looks a little ragged but the Tigers should get off to a good start being at home. Les Miles doesn't care about style when he's trying to improve the substance of his team. LSU could run the ball every play and win by shutout but the Tigers have to get better in certain areas and that means playing players who are likely to mess up. The starters' job is to get an early lead and let the scrimmaging begin.

BleacherReport: Sam Houston State is not a bad football team for its respective talent level. The Bearkats went a respectable 9-5 overall in 2013 and could easily meet that record again this year. But the Southland Conference is not the Southeastern Conference. LSU has too much speed and strength for the Bearkats to handle.

Miles will win big and will continue to play his highly touted 2014 recruiting class. Look for Fournette, safety Jamal Adams, defensive tackle Davon Godchaux and defensive end Deondre Clark to get more snaps Saturday.

This sums things up pretty well.
