Zach Mettenberger has torn ACL, to miss bowl game

LSU Tigers quarterback Zach Mettenberger will miss the school’s bowl game.

Mettenberger has a torn ACL reports ESPN.

As a senior Mettenberger became just the third quarterback in LSU history to top 3,000 yards in a season before he was injured in a 31-27 win over Arkansas last week. Mettenberger finishes the season with 22 touchdown passes and was fourth in the national with a 171.45 passer rating.

Anthony Jennings who replaced Mettenberger last week would start in a bowl game for LSU.

Mettenberger had been considered as high as a second round pick for next year’s draft. He now figures to miss his entire rookie season.
