Fact or Fiction - LSU's Fournette Says Emphatically 'FACT'...!

on 10/29/2016 08:00:00 AM


Crimson Tide Sports:

In proper style, LSU's Leonard Fournette announced his presence with authority against Ole Miss on Saturday night.

The running back ran for 284 yards and three scores on 16 carries to set the LSU single-game rushing record, breaking Alley Broussard's 250-yard mark against Ole Miss in 2004.

It was his first action since aggravating a bone bruise in his ankle on Sept. 24.

At one point, he had seven carries for 249 yards, including touchdown runs of 59, 76 and 78 yards. The running back had 284 yards and three scores on just 16 carries.

Now, he prepares for the top-ranked rushing defense in the country when LSU hosts Alabama at 7 p.m. on Nov. 5.

The No. 1 Tide (8-0) are giving up just a mere 70.1 yards per game.

"Everybody knows they knocked us off last year," Fournette told SEC Now on Monday. "We shall see, man. The defense is doing a tremendous job, overall. Reuben Foster, those linebackers, the defensive line, I can't wait to play those guys in Death Valley."

Last year, Alabama held Fournette to just 31 yards on 19 carries as Derrick Henry ran for 210 yards and three touchdowns in the Tide's 30-16 victory.

This year, however, the game is in Baton Rouge.

"It's going to be hectic, especially since they are undefeated," Fournette said of the atmosphere. "It's going to be one of the best games we're going to play. I'm going to make sure as a leader on the team, we're preparing everybody each and every day."
Fournette also played a game of Fact or Fiction with the host of SEC Now.

When told, "LSU will beat Alabama this year," he replied, "Fact."
