LSU sophomore running back Leonard Fournette dominated Eastern Michigan on Saturday, rushing for 233 yards and three touchdowns on just 23 carries. But afterwards, he actually wanted to talk about another tailback who plays in the SEC.

Fournette, in both his post-game press conference and later a tweet, congratulated Georgia running back Nick Chubb for tying Herschel Walker's record for consecutive 100-yard games in a Bulldogs uniform. Chubb's 146 yards came in defeat to Alabama. It was the 13th straight time he's crossed the mark.

In just four games, Fournette has 864 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns. If he keeps it up, he'll be breaking records of his own.
