BATON ROUGE, La. — It took LSU all of 13 seconds with the ball to find the end zone.
To be more precise, that’s how long it took Leonard Fournette to score after he took his first handoff of the second half.
Fournette notched his third touchdown of the game — this time from 78 yards out — to put LSU back on top of Ole Miss, 28-21 in the third quarter. In the contest, No. 7 has touchdowns of 76 and 59 yards.
Overall, in his first game back since injuring his ankle against Auburn, Fournette has piled up 249 yards on the ground on seven carries. It’s his third consecutive 100-plus-yard performance against Ole Miss.
He is one yard shy of breaking LSU’s single-game rushing record.
