Auburn defensive back Rudy Ford said earlier this week that stopping LSU tailback Leonard Fournette wouldn’t be a challenge. Fournette has proven to be anything but easy to stop during the first half Saturday. The running back already has 169 rushing yards on only 15 attempts and a beastly 40-yard touchdown.
Fournette shows a mix of speed and power on this play. First, he jukes an Auburn defender on the outside, and then he shows incredible strength by lowering the shoulder on a helpless Blake Countess.
In Fournette’s latest Heisman moment, the running back flips a diving defender over his shoulders en route to the end zone.
