LSU vs Texas A&M: Handing out Game Balls in Impressive Tigers Win

LSU has defeated Texas A&M 24-19 in a huge SEC showdown. Neither offense performed well, but the defenses were superb and there were several excellent individual performances.

These players deserve game balls for the victorious Tigers.

Offense: Jeremy Hill, RB

The majority of the Tigers' offense came from the running game, and Jeremy Hill led the way for that bruising Tigers' running game. His 18 carries for 127 yards led all ball carriers in the game, as did his 7.1 yards per carry.

His 47 yard touchdown was the deciding touchdown for the Tigers, and he was very productive all day.

What Hill did despite an anemic passing game was nothing short of remarkable. He was the top offensive playmaker for the Tigers today, and he is well worthy of a game ball. 

Kadron Boone deserves an honorable mention as well for his amazing touchdown catch.

Defense: Kevin Minter, LB

If I could, I would give this game ball to the entire front seven, which succeeded in completely dominating the line of scrimmage for most of the game.

Kevin Minter led the charge, though, racking up a sack and an interception. Minter has become a team leader and an elite playmaker, and he showed that off today. 

Johnny Manziel struggled all game long, averaging under six yards an attempt, throwing three interceptions and getting hit on a regular basis. Minter deserves a lot of credit for the spectacular LSU performance today.
