With the uncertainty of the MSU quarterback position, LSU head coach Les Miles says he is preparing for both Tyler Russell and Dak Prescott.
Russell hasn’t played since week one, but was cleared before the Troy game two weeks ago. Prescott has played well in Russell’s absence, but Mullen has bee leaning towards Russell starting this week.
Miles sees complications with both Bulldog signal callers.
“They’re running different things, but they’re very capable adding challenges to the defense in both venues,” Miles said.
In the only game Russell played in he completed 10-of-16 passes for 133 yards and one interception.
Prescott has completed 47-of-85 passes for 709 yards and three touchdowns. He has been dangerous with his legs picking up 215 yards on 37 carries. He has also scored five touchdowns on the ground.
“Dak Prescott is a very capable runner and play maker in his own right,” Miles said. Tyler Russell is a very capable passer and is a very big time playmaker.”
Miles is also trying to think outside the box.
“I wouldn’t surprised if Tyler Russell didn’t do some of the things Dak did just to change up,” he said.
