It was a big day for the offense, especially the running backs, in LSU’s second scrimmage of preseason camp.
Derrius Guice broke off a 60-yard run on the first play of the scrimmage, finishing with 102 rushing yards on nine carries, according to the stats provided to the media.
Coach O says Derrius Guice went 60 yards on first play of scrimmage for TD. Finished 9-102.

Guice wasn’t the only running back with a big day. Darrel Williams also wracked up a solid 4.75 yards per carry and a pair of touchdowns.
Orgeron says #LSU‘s offense “dominated” most of the scrimmage.

Though Orgeron said the offense dominated, the quarterback’s completion and turnover numbers leave a lot to be desired in the passing game. It does appear that the Tigers’ quarterback competition is down to Danny Etling and Myles Brennan.
Sounds like Brennan outproduced Etling a bit today
Brennan 4-8 107 yds, TD
Etling 8-18 114 yds, 0 TD, 2 INT#LSU

While Etling is still the leader, Brennan did get some first-team snaps.
Orgeron reiterates that Etling is still the starting QB. “Nobody has beaten him out.” Brennan took some snaps with the first team. #LSU
