BATON ROUGE, La.  - LSU's ground game is finding its usual dominant form if more than 300 yards rushing against Kent State is any indication.

Combine that with a rejuvenated and unusually consistent passing attack, and it looks like the Tigers have attained the dynamism on offense that they've coveted for several years.

Running back Jeremy Hill, who had 117 yards and two touchdowns on only 11 carries against Kent State on Saturday night, says opposing defenses can no longer over-play LSU's running game or they'll get exposed by Tigers quarterback Zach Mettenberger.

Now up to No. 6 in the AP poll, LSU (3-0) is averaging 488 yards of offense, with about 219 per game on the ground and 269 per game through the air. They are also scoring an average of 46 points.
