LSU has won 11 straight night games at Tiger Stadium. To make it 12, the Tigers will have to get some quality play from their new starting quarterback.

Ed Orgeron said late Thursday that he has named true freshman TJ Finley of Ponchatoula as the starting quarterback for Saturday night’s game against South Carolina.

Finley beat out fellow true freshman Max Johnson.

Starter Myles Brennan will miss the game with an abdominal injury. He could miss several weeks.

Here’s what Orgeron told reporters late Thursday.

LSU is 1-2 on the season. Last week’s game at Florida was postponed after a Covid outbreak on the Florida football team.
