SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
When Iowa takes on LSU in the Outback Bowl, the Hawkeye defense will face off against the nation's 34th-ranked passing offense.

But what do you do when the quarterback you're preparing for isn't the one responsible for those numbers?

That's the question that the Hawkeyes face as they get ready for Tiger quarterback Anthony Jennings.

Jennings has thrown just 10 passes this season after taking over for injured starter Zack Mettenberger in the Tigers' regular season finale against Arkansas.
    
In that game, Jennings completed six of those passes for 99 yards with one touchdown.    
    
With a lack of game film on Jennings, some Hawkeyes have turned to alternative methods to find out more about the true freshman.

"I was looking up his high school film last night on my own before I went to bed," said linebacker James Morris. "It's not like we're sitting in our meeting room and our coaches are saying, 'Hey, go look up the kid's Rivals page.' That was just something I did on my own. I'm just trying to do whatever I can to get an edge."

Iowa and LSU kick off next Wednesday at noon on ESPN.
