LSU Tigers quarterback Zach Mettenberger’s college career is over after suffering a torn ACL and sprained MCL in his left knee, according to a report from ESPN.

Mettenberger suffered the injury during the Tigers’ rivalry game against Arkansas the day after Thanksgiving. Arkansas defensive tackle Byran Jones hit Mettenberger in his left leg as the quarterback was launching a deep pass. Jarvis Landry hauled in the throw for an unbelievable catch.

The senior quarterback was replaced by freshman Anthony Jennings, who then led the Tigers to a thrilling win over the Razorbacks.

Mettenberger will require surgery to fix the ACL tear, but will allow the sprained MCL to heal for a couple of weeks before undergoing the operation.

He will now be tasked with convincing teams that he is still worthy of a high pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, despite the fact that he’ll be limited in his play for the next several months.
