Miles is hoping his offense will be strong enough to contend in the SEC this year. Running back Leonard Fournette could be one of the top backs in college this year. He rushed for 1,034 yards and 10 touchdowns as a freshman in 2014. LSU has a QB battle going on, but Brandon Harris has been named the starter over Anthony Jennings.
