LSU's Hill named SEC offensive player of the week

Sophomore running back Jeremy Hill has been named the Southeastern Conference Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in LSU's 35-21 win over Auburn on Saturday in Tiger Stadium.

Hill rushed for career-highs of 184 yards and three touchdowns on 25 carries in leading LSU past Auburn. Hill scored the first two times he touched the ball – going 49 yards on the first TD and then 12-yardd on his next carry – to give LSU a 14-0 lead just minutes into the contest.

Hill added a third touchdown on a 6-yard run in the third quarter that stretched LSU's lead to 28-7. He also set up LSU's third touchdown of the game when he raced 54-yards down to the Auburn 1-yard line. Fullback J.C. Copeland finished that drive with a 1-yard plunge that gave LSU to a 21-0 lead at halftime.
 
Overall, Hill helped an LSU offensive attack that racked up 457 total yards (228 rushing, 229 passing) in the contest.
 
The 184 rushing yards by Hill were the most by an LSU player since Alley Broussard set the school record with 250 yards in a win over Ole Miss in 2004.
 
Monday's honor is the second from the league for Hill as last year as he was named the SEC Co-Freshman of the Week for his play in LSU's win over third-ranked South Carolina.
 
Other honors handed out by the SEC on Monday include: Dante Fowler (Florida) defensive player of the week; Alan D'Appollonio (Arkansas) special teams player of the week; Gabe Jackson (Mississippi State) offensive lineman of the week; Kony Ealy (Missouri) defensive lineman of the week; and Reggie Davis (Georgia) freshman of the week.

    Nice weather on MondayNice weather on Monday

    Through the rest of tonight, we will have clear skies with rain chances down to zero. Temperatures will cool down to the upper 30s to the low 40s tonight, so it will be cooler from last night. With the clouds clearing, that will allow temperatures to quickly fall. Frost is possible north of I-10! Monday will be another beautiful day! Highs will remain in the mid 60s with mostly sunny skies. There could be a few more clouds in the afternoon, but none that will bring any rain.
