Fournette powers No. 13 LSU past No. 18 Auburn, 45-21

Sure, Rebels quarterback Chad Kelly made a Heisman splash on Saturday night as well and is No. 4 in Bleacher Report’s current top five. Hopefully this won’t be the most impressive tape Fournette has this year, because that would mean every defense in the SEC plays as ineptly as Auburn. But he rushed for 127 yards and a score against the stout Ole Miss defense on Saturday and has 370 yards and seven touchdowns through three games. This was one of the LSU offense’s big issues from last season and so far this year, it is a complete reversal. “That’s not my quote, but I believe that about Leonard Fournette“.


Cardale Jones threw two interceptions and went to the bench in the second quarter. Controlling the clock by a almost 3:2 advantage helped strangle any chance Auburn had of keeping pace in this game.

Last week, the Buckeyes shook free of Hawaii in the second half, but they couldn’t do the same with Northern Illinois (2-1).

“You’ve got to gang-tackle”, Shafer said during his weekly interview with Matt Park on on Monday. One, Leonard Fournette can not be tackled.

Problem areas for the Tiger group from east Alabama heading into its game with Mississippi State are many and major, some not hard to spot.

On if he needs a dual-threat QB? LSU relies on its running game and solid defense to win games. And guess what, he threw another interception. “He finally got one in a big time game like that”. He made plays with his feet and his arm. Fournette carried the ball 19 times for 228 yards and three TDs. The Tigers got up 24-0 before the other Tigers got on the board. 2.

The difference between the two is that Chubb’s quarterback, junior Greyson Lambert, looks like much more of a weapon.

-LB Lamar Louis will see extended playing time, at least in the first half because starter Deion Jones will be suspended for that long because of a targeting penalty he committed against Auburn. If I’m Dan Mullen, I’m game planning for two quarterbacks this week in practice. It was the most points a Steve-Spurrier coached team has ever given up to Georgia. We all knew coming into the season they could struggle after losing so many key starters, but then again… a lot of people didn’t because they already had Johnson tabbed as the next Cam Newton. The Fighting Irish held the Yellow Jackets to 216 yards rushing. Notre Dame lost a contender with Malik Zaire but could boast another if DeShone Kizer continues to progress. That would have run the score to 31-3 and the rout would have been on.

And LSU is set to remain potent on the ground beyond this season. On the first, simple, piddling little play against Auburn, he picked his way through the middle with his 6-foot-1, 230-pound package, then tore away with his speed for 71 yards.

Tanner Mangum drove the Cougars to the Bruins 42-yard line, but his fourth-down pass was intercepted by Myles Jack, allowing the Rose Bowl crowd of 67,612 to finally celebrate. Thomas is the team’s second leading receiver with 109 yards.

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – Jeff Lockie threw for 228 yards and two touchdowns in his first start for Oregon. Oregon’s Vernon Adams has a loss and has been banged up.

LSU running back Leonard Fournette (7) eludes Auburn defensive back Blake Countess (24) on a 40-yard touchdown run in the first half of an NCAA college football game in Baton Rouge, La., Saturday, September 19, 2015.


While Fournette has averaging a nation’s-best 193.5 yards through a pair of victories to open the season, LSU’s three backup running backs and quarterback Brandon Harris have combined for a not-so-shabby 136.5 rushing yards per game.
