TAMPA - The Tigers drove down the field on their first possession of the game, behind eight straight runs(most of them to sophomore running back Jeremy Hill) to eventually score on a two-yard quarterback keeper with freshman Anthony Jennings.

Jennings is in his first start as a Tiger QB.

In the second quarter, Hill again helped drive the Bayou Bengals down to the red zone and even scored for the Tigers from 14 yards out to put LSU up 14-0.

Iowa finally found some life, in the third quarter, with a John Lowdermilk interception returned to the one yard line, that was eventually punched in by Mark Weisman to get the Hawkeyes on the board.

Once again, sophomore running back Jeremy Hill led the Tigers to pay dirt, taking a 38-yard carry(216 on the day) to the end zone to all but clinch victory for the Tigers and a 21-7 lead with two minutes left in the game.

Iowa would run a kickoff back to the LSU five yard line and get in the end zone again, but the Tigers would prevail 21-14.
