Leonard Fournette’s highlight reel in blowout win vs. Auburn (Video)


Leonard Fournette had the best game of his LSU career on Saturday when he torched the Auburn Tigers so let’s revisit his highlight-reel runs from the blowout win.

I’m not sure the ’85 Bears could have slowed down Leonard Fournette the way he was running today. The 230-pound sophomore back ran for a career-high 228 yards and three touchdowns on only 19 carries before sitting after his third score made it 38-7 with 4:14 left in the third quarter.

Fournette didn’t waste much time getting in a rhythm today as he raced for 71 yards on the first play of the game and LSU scored three plays later with Fournette the decoy as quarterback Brandon Harris kept the option keeper for the short rushing touchdown.

Not a bad first carry for Fournette who was just getting started on the way to his best game in a LSU uniform and a performance that may have him as the leader in the Heisman Trophy standings, albeit three weeks into the season.

Fournette topped himself with a 40-yard touchdown run and initiated some contact late to get into the end zone showing the former No. 1 overall recruit is a bad, bad man. Look at No. 23 on Auburn who runs toward Fournette and then gets scared and doesn’t even bother putting his body in front of the runaway train dressed in a No. 7 uniform.

But again, Fournette managed to top himself with his second touchdown of the game when Auburn safety Tray Matthews made the mistake of going high in an attempt to take down Fournette, but he brushed him aside like he was an annoying gnat that wouldn’t leave him alone at a summer picnic.

Brace yourself for many more runs like this from Fournette this year who still has one more year before he can get paid to do stuff like this in the NFL.

Fournette added his third touchdown late in the third quarter but it was a rather ordinary TD where he leaped over everyone to get in the end zone.
