It was only a matter of time before LSU tailback Leonard Fournette broke loose.
After rushing for just 49 yards in the first half, Fournette busted an 87-yard touchdown run on the second play of the second half to extend LSU’s lead to 24-10 over South Carolina. According to The Advocate’s Ross Dellenger, Fournette became the fastest player to eclipse the 1,000-yard milestone in LSU history.
