LSU Tigers Game Notes
LSU redshirt junior QB Myles Brennan has entered the transfer portal, according to a report from The Athletic. Brennan (6'4/207) lost his first quarterback competition to graduate transfer Joe Burrow and was neck-and-neck with the likes of Max Johnson and Garrett Nussmeier at the beginning of the 2021 season. He was removed from the battle, though, by a broken arm he sustained in the offseason. It's clear Brennan believes he has a better opportunity beyond Baton Rouge, as he's now entered the transfer portal according to Brody Miller of The Athletic. Over four years at LSU, Brennan completed 60.2% of his passes for 1,712 yards with 13 touchdowns and six interceptions.
