LSU leads Auburn 21-0 at halftime in their SEC opener vs. the 3-0 Auburn Tigers in what has been complete domination in all three phases by the LSU Tigers.
Jeremy Hill ran for a career high early in the second quarter with 151 yards on 14 carries with two going for touchdowns in the first quarter. In fact, Hill has outgained the entire Auburn offense by 47 yards after the first 30 minutes.
“The first half was handling the weather. It was a real heavy mist and a strong wind. And really we ran the football, blocked up front and Jeremy Hill ran the ball real well. They continue to tackle well and take the line of scrimmage we’ll like the outcome”, said Miles as he was coming off the field at half.
With a steady rainfall all day and into the game the Auburn offense has had trouble getting anything going on offense as Nick Marshall looks like he should still be at Garden City Community College. Marshall has completed only six of his 16 attempts for 31 yards and an interception.
Auburn has been plagued by turnovers with the aforementioned interception and a fumble on fourth down which led to Hill’s first score and a dropped snap on a punt attempt which led to Hill’s second score. Auburn is 0-3 on fourth down attempts and 1-8 on third down tries.

Look for LSU to continue to pound the rock with Terrence Magee, Alfred Blue and Kenny Hilliard spelling Hill if this game continues to spiral out of hand for Auburn in Tiger Stadium. Zach Mettenberger has only attempted eight passes and likely won’t be asked to do too much with a 21-point lead in a rainstorm.
The majority of those who voted in Friday’s poll question asking to predict the margin of victory should feel pretty confident with their vote with two quarters to play.
