Saturday’s match up between LSU and BYU has been moved from Houston to New Orleans due to the flooding brought about by Hurricane Harvey. The last time LSU played in the Dome was in a 21-0 loss to Alabama in the 2011 BCS national championship game.

The game starts at 8:30 p.m. and will be televised by ESPN.

This is the first season opener for Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron, who replaced Les Miles during the 2016 season. Orgeron recently announced that former St. Stanislaus quarterback Miles Brennan would enter the 2017 season as number two on his depth chart and that Danny Etling will be his starting quarterback.

But will Brennan get any playing time against BYU?

According to a Tweet by Ross Dellenger of The Advocate, the answer is maybe.

A Tweet from Mike Gegenheimer, a sportswriter who covers LSU football, included a video of Brennan getting some reps with top running back Derrius Guice two days ago.

And while it’s too early in the season to start Heisman Trophy talk, CBS sports writer Barrett Sallee mentions Brennan in a Heisman-related Tweet.
