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. 

 

UPDATE: Saturday, Nov. 17 at 7:08 p.m. ET by Richard Langford

With the score knotted at 35, LSU tweeted out this far more positive update.

LSU tweeted out the news.

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.
