WHAT LES MILES HAD TO SAY
"It was a productive outing. We got a lot of quality film to judge our team by and see improvement. I really challenged this team to make improvement in every practice.
"We played well on both sides of the ball. We tackled well and we had only one turnover on an interception (Micah Eugene) that should have been caught. I saw only one missed tackle all day. We were certainly not perfect. Something we need to improve in is pre-snap penalties.
"Mettenberger made a couple of intuitive throws. He saw things very quickly and got the ball out of his hand. Guys anticipated the catch and down the field it went. He looked good and 20-of-30 to start is really nice. Two series were against the second team, but the rest of the day was against the first-team defense."
WHAT'S UP NEXT
LSU will practice Monday and Tuesday with the second spring scrimmage set for Thursday. Following Thursday's practice, the team will be off until April 9 for spring break.
