It's a go for Burrow.
LSU football's official depth chart released Monday for the season-opener against Miami lists Ohio State transfer Joe Burrow as the starter at quarterback, beating out Myles Brennan.
The news came after head coach Ed Orgeron told reporters he had met with both quarterbacks to deliver the decision, adding he would talk with the team before the starter's name would be announced to the media.
Sports Illustrated's Ross Dellenger tweeted Monday afternoon that both quarterbacks were shown grades of their preseason work, and in some areas Brennan out-performed Burrow, but Burrow's experience won out in the end.
The message was delivered to the QBs face-to-face in a professional manner, and grades were presented. Burrow edged Brennan in some departments (namely decision making), but Brennan kept pace or exceeded Burrow in many others.— Ross Dellenger (@RossDellenger) August 27, 2018
Sounds like #LSU has two solid options. https://t.co/n4SODTI28J
