The defending champion LSU Tigers are having a heck of a time with Mississippi State on Saturday. Heading into the game, LSU found itself as a 16-point favorite against Mike Leach’s squad.
With his team down 24-20 in the third quarter, Hill took a short pass from quarterback K.J. Costello and turned it up field for an eye-opening 75-yard touchdown.
That’s the type of play we have seen from Hill during his four seasons in Starkville. The dude is just special. Hill is coming off a 2019 season that saw him put up 1,530 total yards and 11 touchdowns at a clip of 5.9 yards per touch. There’s a reason he’s being bandied about as a potential early-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
As for the defending champion Tigers, they are looking to avoid becoming the second top-six team to lose in stunning upset fashion on Saturday. Plays like this will not help.
