Star Material

Louisiana State, QB

The redshirt sophomore looked nothing like a backup quarterback in the first start of his career for the No. 2 Tigers.

Perrilloux threw for 298 yards and three touchdowns to lead Louisiana State to a 44-0 victory over Middle Tennessee State.

With a Southeastern Conference showdown against Steve Spurrier's No. 17 South Carolina squad looming next weekend, Coach Les Miles decided to rest regular starter Matt Flynn, who had sprained his right ankle a week earlier and whose participation in practice had been limited.

In LSU's first two games, both blowouts, Perrilloux made the most of his mop-up duty, throwing for three scores and rushing for another.

Against the Blue Raiders, he probably established himself as LSU's quarterback of the future. Throwing hard and accurately, he completed 20 of 25 passes while putting his all-around ability on display with 37 rushing yards.
