Week 7 helmet stickers

October, 13, 2013
Here are three Tigers who earned some extra recognition after the 17-6 win over Florida on Saturday.

The LSU offensive line (that’s one big sticker): This group controlled the line of scrimmage for four quarters. The Tigers rushed for 175 yards against a Gators defense that has allowed 65 yards per game. Zach Mettenberger did not get sacked, which is not to say that he didn’t get hit. But he fared a lot better than Florida quarterback Tyler Murphy did.

DE Jermauria Rasco: We could give a helmet sticker to the entire defensive line, but let’s single out Rasco. The Tigers defensive end had four quarterback hurries and half a sack. LSU allowed Murphy very little time to throw all night. That’s why he threw downfield so rarely, which is how he completed 16-of-28 passes for only 129 yards.

Tailback Jeremy Hill: He rushed for 121 yards on 19 carries and caught one pass for 30 yards, Mettenberger’s longest completion of the game. The Tigers might have a committee of tailbacks, but Hill has established himself as the first among equals. His 715 rushing yards and nine touchdowns lead LSU even though he served a one-game suspension in the season opener.
