Former LSU running back Leonard Fournette made his regular season NFL debut with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday afternoon.
The former Tiger didn’t disappoint, either. Fournette looked to be well-deserving of his first-round, No. 4 overall draft selection, as he terrorized the Houston Texans and helped guide his team to a 29-7 divisional win.
Fournette rushed for 100 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries. He also hauled in three catches for 24 yards. He set a Jaguars record while becoming the first player in franchise history to rush for over 100 yards in a debut.
This stellar performance is no surprise to Tigers fans, but it’s a welcomed relief for Jags fans. Fournette rushed for 3,830 yards and 40 touchdowns in his career at LSU from 2014 to 2016.
Fournette had quite a day, indeed:
