LSU's Hill reluctant to take credit for big gains
BATON ROUGE - Jeremy Hill has gotten used to having a curfew, part of a court-mandated lifestyle change which may have put LSU's top running back on track to play his best football yet.
The sixth-ranked Tigers are already benefiting from big plays by Hill, who only a couple months ago couldn't be sure whether an offseason arrest would ruin his college career.
Now, as Hill heads into LSU's biggest test yet at No. 9 Georgia this Saturday, the only question is when he'll break off another long run, given his three runs of 49-plus yards during the past two games.
Hill credits his offensive line and general support of teammates for his early season success.
After being benched one game, Hill has averaged 117 yards rushing and has scored six touchdowns.
