It’s a one-on-one battle to be the starting quarterback for LSU between Jayden Daniels and Garrett Nussmeier.

Nussmeier has returned from the ankle injury that kept him out of the Tigers’ scrimmage last Thursday and is splitting first-team reps with Jayden Daniels with a starter for the opener against Florida State on September 4th yet to be determined.

The redshirt freshman had a chance to take to the local media about his ankle, the quarterback competition and playing under new head coach Brian Kelly.

“I’m feeling good. I’m back at 100 percent,” Nussmeier said about his ankle. “I’m blessed to be out there, never take anything for granted.”

Nussmeier believes that the competition between he and Daniels is good for both players.

“We’ve both been in quarterback competitions and I think we both learned it doesn’t matter what the other person does,” Nussmeier said. “There’s no bad blood between me and Jayden. We’re good friends and root for each other.”

He also touched on his reputation as a gunslinger.

“I’m still going to take shots, any quarterback should when they’re given to you. Take them when they’re given to you. Take them when you’re supposed to take them.”

Now that the quarterback battle is down to two, who do you think gives LSU the best chance to win in 2022.
