With a 200-yard rushing performance by Jeremy Hill, the LSU Tigers proved capable of defeating a hard-nosed Iowa team in the 2014 Outback Bowl without Zach Mettenberger.
In a 21-14 victory, Hill carried the Tigers with 216 yards rushing and two rushing touchdowns. His performance paved the way for the offense, while LSU's defense had one of its best showings of the season.
Still, Iowa didn't go down without a fight, as James Morris and the defense kept the Hawkeyes in the game all the way until the end. It was a defensive struggle that saw LSU outgain Iowa 302 to 233 in total yards.
With a Tiger victory over a physical Iowa bunch, here are the greatest takeaways from the 2014 Outback Bowl.
