BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU says it has granted reserve quarterback Stephen Rivers' request to transfer after he graduates this spring, allowing him to play wherever he wants next fall.

Rivers, the younger brother of San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, has used only two seasons of eligibility after taking a redshirt year at LSU in 2011.

He spent 2012 as Zach Mettenberger's backup, seeing only limited action in four games.

He entered 2013 expecting to be Mettenberger's backup again, but fell behind Anthony Jennings in the depth chart. Jennings wound up filling in for Mettenberger and leading LSU to a comeback victory in the Tigers' regular-season finale against Arkansas. Jennings then started LSU's Outback Bowl victory over Iowa.
