LSU sets rushing record as Tigers continue domination of Purdue at Citrus Bowl
LSU dominated Purdue in several ways on Monday in the Citrus Bowl, and along the way, the Tigers set a rushing record.
As the Tigers went up 28-0, they recorded the 38th rushing touchdown of the season, a school record and broke the previous mark that was set in 2013. It came from Noah Cain, who added his second score of the game, and by that point had 6 carries for 39 yards. The record-breaker was a 9-yarder with 8:23 remaining in the first half.
Cain, a transfer from Penn State, came into the game with 347 yards and 8 touchdowns.
The Tigers had little trouble in any area during a romp of a first half which saw LSU go up 35-0 with 1:07 remaining. The Tigers rang up 116 rushing yards on 15 carries for an average of 7.7 yards per carry.
