Mettenberger injured his leg in the final regular season game against Arkansas.
Mettenberger came into his own in his senior season, passing for 3,082 yards and completing 65 percent of his passes. He was being touted as a pro prospect with early round draft grades before the injury.
Freshman quarterback Anthony Jennings took the reins from Mettenberger and led the Tigers on a 99-yard touchdown drive at the end of the game to give LSU the win. He will likely start LSU's bowl game.
The final BCS rankings are announced Sunday. LSU should know who they are facing later that day.
