LSU RB Leonard Fournette had a great game against Florida.

LSU freshmen running back Leonard Fournette was featured in this weeks SEC Freshman Tracker by ESPN:

RB Leonard Fournette, LSU

What he did: Fournette had previously split carries pretty evenly with LSU’s three other tailbacks, but he got by far the most touches while making his first college start against Florida. Fournette ran 27 times for 140 yards and two touchdowns against the Gators, the most rushing yards in a game by an LSU true freshman since 2003. He also had 85 yards on kickoff returns.

What it means: We’ll see whether this was a one-game thing or whether Fournette will now be LSU’s feature back. This was easily his best game as a Tiger after a relatively quiet first half of the season – even if he has led LSU in rushing in six straight games and ranks third in the SEC in all-purpose yards at 136.9 ypg.
Fournette has carried the ball 93 times for 504 yards and 6 touchdowns this season.
