Fournette's big day leads LSU rout of Auburn

  Leonard Fournette avoids a defender in one of his three touchdown runs against Auburn.

A year ago, Leonard Fournette apologized for doing a Heisman pose. Then a freshman, he pulled out the famed stiff-arm in a win against Sam Houston State that received some criticism.

I don’t think anyone would be looking for an apology if he did one today.

Fournette ran for 228 yards and three touchdowns, all in the first three quarters, on just 19 attempts as No. 13 LSU steamrolled No. 21 Auburn 45-21 on Saturday afternoon. He took the first play from scrimmage 70 yards, and continued to baffle the Tigers’ defense all day.

He shook off would-be tacklers, barreled through some, went over some and even under some. If Leonard Fournette wasn't a Heisman frontrunner before, he very well may be now.

Earlier in the week, Auburn's defense made a point in saying that they shouldn't have a problem stopping Fournette. Other teams might want to avoid giving him that kind of motivation for the rest of the season.
