BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - At this point, it looks like the toughest team unbeaten LSU has faced this season is its second team in practice.
A 63-14 blowout of Idaho on Saturday, which helped the Tigers climb to No. 2 in the AP poll, served as the latest reminder that LSU's sideline is loaded with exceptional players waiting for their chance to shine.
Sophomore Ronald Martin needed one start to have what would be considered a career night for many fellow safeties across.
He made two interceptions, one of which he returned for a 45-yard touchdown.
Freshman running back Jeremy Hill made his debut and averaged 6.1 yards on 10 carries while scoring two touchdowns.
That kind of depth is only boosting LSU's confidence as it opens Southeastern Conference play at Auburn next Saturday.
