LSU head coach Les Miles still won't reveal who he'll start at quarterback when the Tigers play Wisconsin on Saturday.

Miles admitted he knows who it will be, Anthony Jennings or Brandon Harris, but doesn't want to make the news public just yet.

"If there was one quarterback that gave us all the advantages to play, then at some point in time, that guy would be our starter after he determined that it was an advantage to his team to play him in all situations from start to finish," Miles said at his media luncheon on Monday.

"That separation has not occurred. We are preparing to play both guys."

Jennings is a sophomore who led the Tigers on a 99-yard touchdown drive to beat Arkansas in 2013. He finished that game 4-of-7 for 76 passing yards. He also rushed for 26 yards against the Hogs. His only start was in LSU's bowl game against Iowa on January 1. He completed 7 of his 19 passes for just 82 yards. He was sacked four times and scored a touchdown of his own with a 2-yard run.

Harris, a true freshman, has impressed since his arrival on campus in the spring of 2014. He threw for 195 yards and three touchdowns in the spring game. He also rushed for 77 yards and touchdown.

What we do know is that both will play Saturday.

"Who goes on to the field first is significant, but who comes off the field, and it's really going to be their best play, and we are looking forward to that happening," the head coach added.
