August, 22, 2012
GeauxTigerNation writers Gary Laney and David Helman get you ready for the season with a daily breakdown throughout August of what LSU is facing in the fall, from its opponents, to its road trips to who it's recruiting. Today, Laney takes a look at who impressed him most during August camp, which wrapped up Tuesday.

1. QB Zach Mettenberger: The pressure's on the new starting QB and he's responded in the two full scrimmages, throwing seven touchdowns versus two interceptions while completing 30 of 56 passes for 360 yards in statistics provided by LSU sports information. He hit big plays in the first scrimmage and got the Tigers offense into the end zone on red zone possessions in the second scrimmage.
