Jeremy Hill bounces back to lead LSU alumni's Week 4 NFL performances

Week 4 wasn't as kind to the former Tigers on NFL offenses as some past weeks have been, but running back Jeremy Hill made the most of his opportunities and Jarvis Landry excelled all over the field (and globe) despite his team's tough performance to highlight the best.

Changes could be in store for LSU receiver corps

The LSU receiver corps hasn't been overly productive through four games this year. Malachi Dupre leads the team with 122 receiving yards, and Travin Dural has the most catches on the squad with 10.

LSU running back Leonard Fournette is building up our expectations of him so high, that the day he rushes for fewer than 200 yards is the day we call it a disappointing game.

Alley Broussard Awaits Leonard Fournette to Surpass Record

It was another electric night in Tiger Stadium. LSU had a young quarterback under center, but there was no need to worry about scoring when they had this running back.

Before you knew it he was off into...
