With LSU trailing Ole Miss while trying to keep itself relevant in the national championship picture, they lost star quarterback Zach Mettenberg for at least a play due to injury.

Mettenberger was shaken up on the play, so Stephen Rivers will line up at QB on 3rd and 5. #LSURoar

As I type, the Tigers are trailing Ole Miss 35-28 in the fourth. After two outstanding weeks, Mettenberger was not playing his best football. He has 230 yards passing, but he has two interceptions and no touchdowns.
