Mettenberger, Marshall Follow Similar Career Paths


By Alabama News Network

The paths of LSU's Zach Mettenberger and Auburn's Nick Marshall will finally intersect after following parallel treks.
The two quarterbacks both landed in the Southeastern Conference Western Division after going from Georgia to Kansas junior colleges. Mettenberger leads No. 6 LSU against Marshall and the visiting Tigers Saturday night.
Both have been taking full advantage of their second chances in the SEC after getting dismissed by the Bulldogs.
Mettenberger is leading a national title contender in his third season at LSU and has been the SEC's most efficient passer.
Marshall played cornerback as a freshman at Georgia. He went to Garden City Community College for a season as a quarterback and quickly won Auburn's starting job.
Marshall threw for 339 yards and the game-winning touchdown last weekend against Mississippi State.
