On a day where LSU star tailback Leonard Fournette accomplished something no other player has in SEC history, he took to Twitter to applaud another Heisman Trophy candidate for his accomplishment.
Nick Chubb tied Herschel Walker’s UGA record with his 13th-consecutive 100-yard rushing game in a 38-10 loss to Alabama. Fournette, who set an SEC record with his third-consecutive 200-yard rushing day, tweeted, “Congrats to the homie @NickChubb21.”
If they both keep up their torrid pace they could meet on the field in Atlanta for the SEC Championship game. And they also might get to hang out in New York City for a few days together as Heisman Trophy finalists.
Congrats to the homie @NickChubb21
