BATON ROUGE - The LSU football team held its second preseason scrimmage Saturday afternoon in Tiger Stadium and head coach Les Miles says he's starting to see the progress. 

The Tigers ran roughly 120 snaps according to Miles, with the candidates for starting quarterback totalling 20 completions on 45 pass attempts. 

Miles said the quarterbacks combined for 3 touchdown passes but did not say who among Brandon Harris, Anthony Jennings - or someone else - accounted for those scoring throws. 

The LSU running backs each earned roughly 14 carries, with senior Kenny HIlliard leading the way with 14 yards. Miles said Leonard Fournette also had a long run, but implied that it might have been on a broken play against a scout team defense rather than against the first string players. 

On defense, Danielle Hunter was the star among the group with 9 tackles and 4 tackles for loss: Miles said the defense played "dominant" football.
