Davis-Price set an LSU school record Saturday with 287 rushing yards in a 49-42 upset win over Florida, breaking Leonard Fournette’s previous single-game mark of 284 yards.
The 6-1, 232-pound junior also scored 3 touchdowns, helping an LSU rushing attack that was averaging just 80 yards per game roll up 321 yards against the Gators.
To’oTo’o, meanwhile, had 13 tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss, and a sack in the Crimson Tide’s 49-9 win at Mississippi State, as Alabama bounced back from its upset loss at Texas A&M a week earlier.
The 9 points represented the fewest the Crimson Tide defense had allowed in a game this season.
