True Freshman TJ Finley to Start At QB for LSU

Kickoff Saturday night in Baton Rouge is set for 6:00.

Brennan is 79-of-131 passing for 1,112 yards and 11 touchdowns and three interceptions in 2019 as LSU has averaged almost 40 points per game. The 2-2 Gamecocks have a big game next week against LSU.

The LSU Tigers have made their decision on Myles Brennan's partially torn oblique muscle.

"It could have been a flip of the coin", Orgeron said of the battle between Finley and Johnson. While he played the rest of that 45-41 loss, he didn't practice in the days before the Florida game was postponed because of the Gators' coronavirus cases. LSU hasn't specified what Brennan's injury is and there was an assumption that he suffered a shoulder injury.

The road team has covered in five straight meetings between these two teams, while LSU is just 1-4 at the betting window in its last five games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in its previous contest.

Finley won the position battle over freshman Max Johnson to replace Myles Brennan, who started the first three games of the season but is battling a lower-body injury. Until LSU proves that it can slow down anyone defensively, there's no reason to lay a lot of points with the Tigers.
