LSU QB Nussmeier decides to redshirt
After playing all but the first two offensive series for LSU against Arkansas this past weekend, freshman quarterback Garrett Nussmeier has decided to redshirt. As a result, he will not play in the final two games of the season or a potential bowl game.
LSU head coach Ed Orgeron said this week the decision whether to continue competing for the starting job or redshirt to preserve a year of eligibility was up to Nussmeier and his family. His father Doug is a former NFL quarterback and college football offensive coordinator who currently serves as the quarterbacks coach for the Dallas Cowboys.
Max Johnson remains the starter with walk-om Max Dowd as his backup. The Tigers’ starter for every game this season, the sophomore Johnson played the first series against the Razorbacks, going 3-for-6 passing for 21 yards before Nussmeier took over and went 18-of-31 for 179 yards with a touchdown and a pair of interceptions in a 16-13 overtime defeat at Tiger Stadium.
LSU is a 28.5 point favorite against ULM this week.
