Jeremy Hill Running Toward Record Books for LSU Tigers

After throwing his first interception of the season that led to a Tre Mason touchdown run for Auburn, Zach Mettenberger responded nicely with an up-tempo drive by LSU which resulted in a Jeremy Hill’s third touchdown of the evening.

Earlier on the drive a long catch and run for touchdown by Jarvis Landry was called back on a holding penalty by Kadron Boone but after Travis Dickson reeled in his longest reception of his career for 45-yards the Tigers were back in the red zone. Two plays later Hill had his second career game with three touchdowns.

Hill ran for three touchdowns in LSU’s 41-35 win vs. Ole Miss last year on 20 carries and a total of 77 yards. The 6-2, 235-pound native of Baton Rouge ran for 12 touchdowns last year and already has six through his first three games of the season.

This has been a career night for Hill on the 25th anniversary of the Earthquake Game and with apologies to Aaron Murray, Dak Prescott and Johnny Manziel; he looks like a good bet to be the SEC offensive player of the week.

With a little more than a quarter and a half left to play vs. Auburn, Hill is threatening to become the first LSU player to rush for 200 yards or more in a game since Nov. 20, 2004 vs. Ole Miss when Alley Broussard ran for 250 vs. the Rebels.
