Danny Etling Will Start for LSU
LSU Football Coach Les Miles says he can’t imagine Danny Etling not taking the first snap against the Mississippi State Bulldogs Saturday night. Etling replaced a struggling Brandon Harris of Parkway High in the second quarter in last Saturday’s 34-13 win over Jacksonsville State.
Etling led the Tigers on three consecutive touchdown drives. Miles says they spoke to Harris about being ready to play if they need him.
All-American running back Leonard Fournette did not play against Jacksonsville State, because of an injured ankle. But Miles expects Fournette will play against the Bulldogs.
