Leonard Fournette's outstanding performance in the Music City Bowl against Notre Dame landed the LSU freshman on Fox Sports "Top 25 most impressive players of bowl season."
quote:

6. Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
The clubhouse favorite for the 2015 Heisman Trophy will play his second year of ball in Baton Rouge next fall. Leonard Fournette simply outclassed Notre Dame in a losing effort. He tallied 143 rushing yards on just eleven carries with two rushing scores, and then added on a 100-yard kickoff return touchdown for good measure.
Top 10:
1. Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State
2. Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon
3. Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia
4. Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin
5. Adoree’ Jackson, WR, USC
6. Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
7. Bryce Petty, QB, Baylor
8. Paul Dawson, OLB, TCU
9. Cooper Rush, QB, Central Michigan
10. Tony Washington, OLB, Oregon

This is the kind of defenses that Chubb ran against all year. If LF had that benefit he would of killed Chubb in the stats column. To me it's not even close LF is the best back period!!

LSU had a legitimate chance of signing #5 on this list. 3 freshmen in the top 6.

Man I predicted a 200 yard rushing game from him, and he would have gotten it had we been able to stop Notre at all that game.

what about how he got the first carry of the game and was quickly sent to the bench after that? The running back rotation doesn't make any sense.

90 yd run followed by 3 straight passes and a punt
