Leonard Fournette and Derrius Guice run their way into LSU history
LSU doesn’t just have one of the best running backs in college football, it has two of them.
In the Tigers’ dominant 38-10 win over Arkansas, the full abilities of Leonard Fournette and Derrius Guice were on display. Fournette carried the ball 17 times for 98 yards and 3 touchdowns but left the game with an ankle injury. In his stead, Guice showed just how effective he can be, rushing for 252 yards and 2 touchdowns on 21 carries.
Guice silenced Razorback Stadium with a 96-yard touchdown run, which was the longest run in school history.
Derrius Guice. 96 Yards. Touchdown LSU!

That wasn’t his only entrance in LSU’s history books, however. After the duo’s impressive outing, Fournette and Guice became just the second pair of back to gain 800 yards, apiece, in a single season.
