Twitter reacts to LSU RB Leonard Fournette's dismantling of Auburn
LSU RB Leonard Fournette has rushed for 228 yards and 3 touchdowns on 19 carries against Auburn.
With LSU holding a 38-7 lead, it seems unlikely LSU will continue to run Fournette onto the field. If that’s the case, Fournette will fall just short of Alley Broussard’s single-game rushing record, which he set when he rushed for 250 yards vs. Ole Miss in 2004.
Fournette now has 387 yards and 6 touchdowns through two games. Fournette’s performance puts him squarely in Heisman Trophy conversation.
It also raises the question: who is the best running back in the SEC? Fournette or Georgia’s Nick Chubb?
Fournette’s heroics set the twitter world ablaze:

Leonard Fournette just got on the stationary bike to work out his legs. Looks better than Lance Armstrong, FWIW.

#LSU Sophomore RB Leonard Fournette drew a lot of criticism for his Heisman pose last season, but it might have just been a year too early.
