Video: LSU releases highlight reel of Leonard Fournette's record-breaking outing
The term “highlight-reel play” can be overused, but Leonard Fournette had so many of them against Ole Miss he literally got his own highlight reel.
The LSU football team’s video department tweeted a hype video featuring several runs from Fournette’s record-breaking performance against the Rebels last Saturday. He ran for a program-record 284 yards and added three touchdowns on just 16 carries.
Fournette’s touchdown runs were 59, 76 and 78 yards, showcasing his breakaway speed. The video wouldn’t have been complete with his steamrolling of Ole Miss defensive back Deontay Anderson, which made waves on social media.
Fournette is now back in Heisman Trophy consideration and has the No. 19 Tigers eyeing an upset of No. 1 Alabama when the two face off in Baton Rouge on Nov. 5.
