The Tigers took a tough loss in Houston, after coming into the Texas Bowl with only 38 scholarship players available.

After weeks of fans wondering who will play quarterback, Jontre Kirklin stepped up to take the role.

Quarterback Jontre Kirklin said, “It was a lot of preparation, we kind of kept it under wraps. The guys fought hard. I commend everybody for fighting, and for having my back throughout this whole journey.”

After not playing quarterback since high school, Kirklin finished the bowl game with three passing touchdowns.

"Obviously quarterback is not his natural position, so there were mistakes that were made today," said Brad Davis, LSU's interim head coach. "As a coach, you should have put them in a better position, so those mistakes weren’t made. In terms of the heart and effort he gave, I couldn’t have asked for anything more.”

With new Head Coach Brian Kelly stepping in, with a considerably well 2022 recruiting class, anticipation is building to see how the Tigers will improve for this coming fall.
