Nall initially played college football at [[LSU Tigers football|Louisiana State University]]. He was [[Redshirt (college sports)|redshirted]] in 1997. In 1998, he was the #2 quarterback behind senior [[Herb Tyler]]. When Tyler suffered an injury late in the game at [[Notre Dame Fighting Irish football|Notre Dame]], Nall came off of the bench to lead LSU the length of the field in a furious comeback attempt. The comeback came up short as an LSU receiver dropped the potential game winning pass in the [[end zone]] on fourth down as time was winding down. Nall then started the next week in the last game of the season at #13 Arkansas. Nall was sacked six times and threw for 147 yards and was intercepted once.
