Ranking the 5 most exciting SEC plays of Week 4
When was the last time Leonard Fournette failed to make one of these lists?
The talented LSU running back is seemingly always due for a 50-yard run. That happened again on Saturday when the sophomore and the Tigers beat Syracuse. Fournette flashed his speed on a 62-yard touchdown run, but just misses the cut of the most exciting plays of Week 4.
Highlights from this week include Georgia running back Sony Michel trucking the entire Southern football team, Tennessee QB Josh Dobbs catching a double-pass and an unreal fourth down conversion against the Vols in The Swamp.
But if we’ve learned anything from this season, Fournette will produce another run worthy of this list in the near future.
5. Patrick Towles draws the defense in right, scores touchdown going left

The Kentucky quarterback is built like a running back, and cut like one, too, on this impressive touchdown run against the Tigers. Towles was the biggest reason Kentucky upset Missouri, and this first score helped set the tempo for the rest of the game.
4. Michel makes his presence felt
Not to be outdone by fellow SEC running back stalwarts Fournette and Nick Chubb, his Georgia teammate, Sony Michel decided to rip through the Southern defense on this touchdown run. Where do the Bulldogs find these guys?
3. Josh Dobbs double-pass

Man, this was a well-executed double-pass by the Vols. You’d think a coach who could design such a play would know when to go for the 2-point conversion. That would just make too much sense.
2. Pharoh Cooper runs around everyone
As impressive as Dobbs’ double-pass was for how well it was executed, Cooper’s was more impressive for how the South Carolina receiver rescued what should have been a blown play. He was clearly supposed to throw the ball downfield, but, with no one open, decided to jet off and run around everyone. Just electric stuff from the Gamecocks.
1. Will Grier to Antonio Callaway

Fourth down. Three Tennessee players in coverage. Yet Antonio Callaway somehow pulled off this 63-yard touchdown. Unreal.
