Leonard Fournette breaks LSU’s single-season rushing record

-

LSU running back Leonard Fournette has certainly had a terrific season for the Tigers. He was leading the Heisman Trophy race for most of the season and he will likely be a finalist for the award in December.

While he probably won’t win the award this year, he certainly has a big string of momentum to build off of next year. In Saturday’s 19-7 win over the Texas A&M Aggies, Fournette went for 159 yards on the ground.

He entered into the game only needing 105 to break Charles Alexander’s single-season record of 1,687 set in 1977. Fournette now holds that record as he sits at 1,745.

Fournette will now be able to add onto that total in the team’s bowl game, which will be announced next Sunday. The Tigers have a special player and he will undoubtedly be a huge part of this team in 2016.
