Jeremy Hill is looking absolutely lethal in the beginning of the battle of two unbeaten teams between Auburn and LSU. Just a little more than five minutes into the game between the two SEC teams Hill already had 59 rushing yards on two carries and two touchdowns.
On his first carry after Auburn fumbled on fourth down, Hill powered his way through two Auburn defenders then displayed his speed as he dashed to the end zone. The 49-yard run was the longest run given up by the Auburn defense all season.

His second carry came after a special teams blunder, as the Auburn punter mishandled the snap. Mother Nature has dropped more than three inches on Baton Rouge tonight. Hill burst through the line for an easy 10 yard score.
This marks the second straight impressive first quarter for Hill who had two touchdowns in the win over Kent State in the first 15 minutes last Saturday en route to a 117-yard performance.
Hill has 82 yards on his first six carries and has doubled the Auburn offensive output, and after a delayed start to his season is looking like the stud tailback LSU fans saw in the final seven games in 2012.
