BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU was dominant on defense and prolific on offense in three non-conference games, making picking a top 10 without slighting anybody difficult this week. But we give it a shot, with a new leader:

1. LB Kevin Minter: Not only is the junior middle linebacker leading LSU in tackles (21), but also tackles for loss (3), showing that LSU's dominant play at linebacker is back.

2. RB Kenny Hilliard: Broke 100-yard mark for the second time in three games and his 71-yard run where he bulled over a safety before outrunning the rest of the Idaho secondary is probably the Tigers' highlight run of the season.
