Overall Game Grade: C
Zach Mettenberger was largely unimpressive throughout. For the game, he completed 16 of 29 passes for 217 yards and one touchdown.
He did make a few spectacular passes, including a 22-yard touchdown pass to Jarvis Landry where Landry made a sensational catch.
Outside of that, most of his first-down throws were courtesy of his receivers, as he was off target for most of the night.
Things started very shaky for Mettenberger as he was only able to complete one pass in the first quarter and could never get comfortable. Most of the fault goes to the coaching staff on that one for not giving him easy throws to get him into a rhythm.
Where Mettenberger was good was at the end of the game when he milked four minutes off the clock as LSU kicked a field goal to take a seven-point lead. The plays he made on that drive brought his grade up.
While the last three weeks saw significant improvement in Mettenberger, Friday's game was a regression of sorts. Luckily, LSU will have a little more practice time before its bowl game, before having all offseason to continue his development.
