After transferring from LSU, Anthony Jennings will be the starting quarterback at Louisiana-Lafayette, Ragin’ Cajuns head coach Mark Hudspeth announced Tuesday.

Jennings hasn’t played since 2014, his only season starting for the Tigers. Jennings announced in July that he would transfer to the Ragin’ Cajuns. A senior and graduate transfer, he was eligible immediately.
There wasn’t a heap of competition for Jennings. One of the two players who split time at quarterback for the 4-8 Ragin’ Cajuns transferred to Northwestern State. The other is now a running back. He primarily beat out sophomore Jordan Davis for the job. Davis saw time in four games last season as a backup.
Jennings was LSU’s starting quarterback for all of 2014 but completed less than 50 percent of his passes and threw only 11 touchdowns to 7 interceptions. He lost the starting job to Brandon Harris the next season.
Harris in a scrimmage Tuesday completed 12 of 15 passes for two scores.
#LSU coach Les Miles: Brandon Harris was 12-15 133 yds, 2 TDs
