Watch: Leonard Fournette Breaks 59-Yard Touchdown, Annihilates Ole Miss Defender

Leonard Fournette trucking a player


Leonard Fournette is back. Ole Miss wishes he wasn't.

The Rebels lead the Tigers 10-7 after one quarter at Death Valley, but Leonard Fournette is making his presence known in a massive way, in his first game since September.

With 3:26 remaining in the quarter, Fournette took a toss 59 yards to the house to put the Bayou Bengals on the board.

Somehow, that might not even be the most impressive game so far for the LSU phenom. On the next LSU possession, Fournette caught a pass from Danny Etling, and absolutely flattened Deontay Anderson en route to a big 22-yard gain.

When Fournette has a full head of steam like that, you do not want to be in his way.

In his absence, back-up running back Derrius Guice had a few break-out performances. With Fournette back, and evidently playing at 100-percent, they form a pretty terrifying one-two punch for Ed Orgeron and the Tigers.

Fournette last played in LSU's loss to Auburn, Les Miles' final game with the program. On the year, he has 449 rushing yards in four games, including his production today. He's been very good this season when healthy. He'll just need to stay that way, with a big NFL pay day on the horizon after this season.
