BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The unexpected emergence of Terrance Magee has made it clear that ninth-ranked LSU's running game can be productive even if Jeremy Hill's disciplinary benching lasts several games.
What remains to be seen is how Magee's playing time sort out once Hill, the Tigers' 2012 leading rusher, is back.
Magee says he's is fortunate to have the opportunity to be playing now and has to keep working.
The ex-high school quarterback from Franklinton, La., has been patient. He saw few carries as a freshman in 2011, and even less action when he was switched to receiver last year.
Now back at running back, he led LSU with 95 yards and two touchdowns in last Saturday's 37-27 season-opening victory over TCU.
LSU next plays UAB on Saturday night.
