Most people understand that LSU running back Leonard Fournette is a force to be reckoned with, but Auburn defensive back Rudy Ford didn't seem to think it would be "that difficult of a challenge" leading up to Saturday's top-25 showdown. But it appear Ford may be coming around. 

After rushing for 228 yards and three touchdowns during the first three-and-a-half quarters of play, including ridiculous runs like this, Auburn's defense was clearly tired of getting run over - and that includes the previously confident Ford. At one point in the fourth quarter, Ford flat-out avoided a collision with the LSU ball carrier.
