Baton Rouge, LA (WHNT) - Connor Neighbors may not be the LSU starting fullback.  He may only be a sophomore.  But he's earning a lot of respect from the Bayou Bengals.

Neighbors has earned playing time in important league games like against Auburn and Texas A&M.  He's also helping the Tigers to the third-best rushing offense in the league.  That's why Les Miles and Zach Mettenberger are happy he'll get to face the school much of his family played for.
