Jeremy Hill may be viewing the Outback Bowl as an audition for the 2014 NFL draft and the early reviews are in and they’re good. Hill had a 42-yard run that helped lead to LSU’s first touchdown and his punishing run in the second quarter gave LSU a 14-0 lead midway through the second quarter.
LSU took advantage of the short field after Iowa muffed a punt and for the first time all afternoon, LSU had a short field to work with and they didn’t waste this opportunity.
Hill moved up to 95 yards on the ground after his touchdown run with an Iowa linebacker hanging on for dear life on 13 carries. If this is indeed his last game in an LSU uniform, he could be in line for a monster statistical performance.
With wet conditions in Tampa and an inexperienced quarterback facing a stingy defense, a conservative approach by Cam Cameron that feeds Hill the ball 25-plus times should be the blueprint for an Outback Bowl win.
