LSU Vs. Auburn: Zach Mettenberger Interceptions A Concern

The LSU Tigers have yet to face a real challenge yet this season, as they've outscored their first three opponents 145-31. However, head coach Les Miles still has some concerns about his team, namely quarterback Zach Mettenberger's interceptions.

According to The Advocate (Baton Rouge, La.), Miles wants Mettenberger to take care of the ball, even though he only has two interceptions this year. However, both of them have come with the Tigers just yards away from their opponents' goal line. Said Miles:

He'll understand it. He's just taking steps. He can't get too excited to score that he forces one in there. He'll understand that it's a quality quarterback's want to throw a touchdown. Now we've got to temper that with the wisdom of when you throw it away because we have three (downs).

When specifically asked about Mettenberger's ability to make risky throws into tight spaces, Miles simply said:

We don’t take those risks.
