LSU runs over No. 23 Ole Miss behind record-breaking night from Leonard Fournette
Tiger Stadium was in vintage form last night as the Tigers took the field to one-hundred and two thousand.
LSU fell behind 10-0 early in the first quarter due to a slow start on both offense and defense, allowing Chad Kelly and the Rebels to dictate plays. Chad Kelly looked comfortable, as Ole Miss wideouts outplayed the LSU defenders early. Then Ed Orgeron made an adjustment, as Dave Aranda’s defense started to pressure the talented Rebel offense.
Offensively, Leonard Fournette broke the LSU single game rushing record notching 284 yards and 3 TDs. QB Danny Etling was solid going 19-28, 204 yards, and 1 TD. Ole Miss couldn’t establish much of a run game due to a stout and juiced LSU defensive front. The Tigers, on offense, had 515 total yards of as Fournette took complete control of the game. Fournette said after the game that his ankle injury was still lingering, however, judging by his performance, he looked fast and nimble. LSU defeated Ole Miss 38-21 and have moved up six spots in the AP Poll to No. 19.
