If the final preseason scrimmage was any indication, LSU fans could be in for another long year in the quarterback department.

Both Joe Burrow and Myles Brennan struggled mightily Saturday, combining to go 15-of-43 for 167 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. They're the only two scholarship pivots left on the roster following the recent departures of Justin McMillan and Lowell Narcisse.

Burrow came to the Tigers over the winter - bringing with him a great deal of fanfare - as a graduate transfer from Ohio State, where he served as a backup for the last two seasons.

Brennan was one of the top quarterback recruits in the 2016 class. The Tigers went to great lengths to keep him committed to the program after changing coaches partway through the 2016 campaign, but he's yet to live up to those expectations.

It's possible LSU could let its quarterback competition carry into the regular season. The Tigers kick off their slate with a blockbuster contest against Miami on Sept. 2.
