With big games on Saturday, both players now lead the Southeastern Conference and rank among the national leaders in their respective statistical categories following the Auburn contest.
Addai, a senior from Houston, ranks first in the conference and 18th in the nation in rushing yards per game with a 107 average. In six games, Addai has rushed for 642 yards and six touchdowns on 129 carries.
Green's 66-yard punt return for a touchdown in the first quarter broke the LSU record for career punt returns for touchdowns. In six games in 2005, Green has returned 16 punts for 268 yards and one touchdown. He currently ranks first in the league and sixth in the nation with a 16.8 punt return average.
LSU's rushing defense took a hit on Saturday, allowing a season-high 230 yards on the ground against Auburn. However, LSU still remains among the best in the nation against the run, allowing 96.5 yards per game, a figure that ranks fourth in the SEC and 13th in the nation.
LSU's pass defense continues its rise up the national charts, coming in at No. 9 in the nation, and second in the SEC, in pass efficiency defense. Through six games, the Tigers are allowing opponents to complete just 47 percent of their passes. Prior to the Auburn game, LSU hadn't allowed a passing touchdown since the first quarter of the Mississippi State contest, a streak that reached 14 straight quarters before a fourth-quarter passing TD by the Tigers on Saturday.
The Tigers are third in the SEC in scoring offense, averaging 29 points per game, while LSU ranks 19th in the nation in scoring defense, yielding just 18 points per contest.
LSU's special teams continue to be among the best in the conference as the Tigers are first in the SEC and fifth in the nation in punt returns (18.1 yards per return). In addition, the Tigers are first in the league and No. 7 in the nation in net punting (39.3 yards per punt) and they are first in the league in kickoff coverage with a net average of 46.2 yards per kick.
