Jeremy Hill shines in LSU's 59-21 win over Mississippi State

New Orleans -- It was another offensive shootout, but this time the LSU defense made a few more plays, and the tenth-ranked Tigers beat Mississippi State, 59-26 in Starkville.

With the win, LSU improves to 5-1 overall and 2-1 in SEC play. It was LSU's 14th straight victory against the Bulldogs.

Running back Jeremy Hill ran for 157 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries, while Kenny Hilliard tallied 39 yards and three scores.

Quarterback Zach Mettenberger threw for 340 yards and two TD's, both of which going to Odell Beckham, Jr. OBJ finished the night with nine receptions for a career-high 179 yards. Jarvis Landry also hauled in eight catches for 96 yards.

It was a 31-26 game in the fourth quarter, but LSU pulled away with Beckham's second touchdown and a punctuation mark rushing score by Hill following an interception by LSU freshman Tre'Davious White. Alfred Blue also score late before Hilliard's final plunge.

It wasn't pretty for LSU's defense though, with the Tigers allowing another 467 total yards. They did hold the Bulldogs to just three points in the second half.

LSU returns home next week to face 18th-ranked Florida.
