Video: Brandon Harris fails Tigers in crunch time, LSU's streak over
LSU knows what it has in Leonard Fournette: the best back in the land and a true Heisman candidate.
Unfortunately, the Tigers probably know what they have in Brandon Harris, too. The junior passer is what he is at this point, and that’s not good enough to take coach Les Miles to the promised land.
Harris, full of talent and dripping with potential, again frustrated fans of the Bayou Bengals with a subpar performance Saturday in the season opener against Wisconsin. He completed 12-of-21 passes for 131 yards with 1 touchdown and 2 interceptions. The second INT was a killer and ended the game.
Miles has now lost the opening week of a season for the first time in his career in Baton Rouge. An even more impressive streak, LSU had won its previous 52 regular-season matchups against non-conference opponents.
