On Monday night, LSU running back Leonard Fournette was named Co-SEC Freshman of the Week for his dominant performance in the Tigers 30-27 victory over Florida on Saturday night. Per

Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
• In first career start, rushed for a career-best 140 yards and a pair of TDs on 27 carries to help LSU beat Florida on the road, 30-27.

• The 27 carries marked a career-high, while the two TDs matched a career-best. Fournette's 140 rushing yards came against a Florida defense that was allowing just 103 yards rushing per game.

• Averaged 5.2 yards per carry. The 140 rushing yards were the most by an LSU true freshman since 2003 when Justin Vincent ran for 201 yards in the SEC Championship Game against Georgia.

• Also tallied 85 yards on four kickoff returns to finish with a career-best 225 all-purpose yards.

Georgia running back Nick Chubb was the other freshman of the week.

Fournette's spin move gave me a bit of a Chubb.
