St. Stanislaus alum Myles Brennan made first start for LSU Saturday

It was a mixed bag of results coming out of Myles Brennan’s first ever start at LSU, now coming off its first loss since 2018.

On paper, Brennan went 27-46 with 345 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions. But it was a slow start for Brennan and the Tigers who needed more than 20 minutes to score their first points of the game.

Mississippi’s all-time leading passer left some throws on the field, but LSU’s offensive line giving up seven sacks certainly didn’t help. LSU Head Coach Ed Orgeron said, “Going to get better, see where he made his mistakes. That’s Myles. Myles is humble. He made some good throws, though. But he was inconsistent. Obviously, we’ve got to protect him. When Myles feels a little pressure, he wants to scramble outside. He’s got to sit in there. But sometimes you can’t. He’s trying to avoid, so I think it all comes to the protection first, easy throws where he can make decisions, put our playmakers in space, let him make plays throwing the ball and take shots. And once we get in that rhythm, we’re going to be fine.”

According to Pro Football Focus, Brennan graded out better in his first LSU start than Joe Burrow did back in 2018.
