LSU tried out some different things with its offensive line last weekend.
Kelly said LSU will continue to use Heard, sticking with a similar rotation to the one it used against Grambling.
We know this staff isn’t afraid to play freshmen on the offensive line after Will Campbell and Emery Jones took over the tackle spots last year. Heard’s talent generated buzz throughout fall camp and we’re seeing it earn him playing time now.
Brian Kelly announces that Milez Frazier will still be a starter but that Lance Heard will rotate into the first-team offensive line again this week vs. Miss. St. #LSU

The offensive line struggled in spots against Florida State. Saturday’s game with Mississippi State will be LSU’s first real test to see if this group improved over the last couple of weeks.
The Mississippi State game is where LSU made a statement last year after a 1-1 start. LSU finds itself in the same spot again as it looks to notch its first FBS win of the year.
