Prior to 2011, he transferred to Louisiana State University.[5] In his first season at LSU, he completed eight of 11 passes for 92 yards and a touchdown. In 2012, he took over as the starting quarterback.[6][7] He led the team to a 10-3 record, completing 58.8% of his passes for 2,609 yards, 12 touchdowns, and 7 interceptions.[8]

In Mettenberger's senior season, he tore his ACL in LSU's final regular season game.[9] He underwent surgery and expects to be ready before the NFL draft.
