Fournette Could Run Wild Against Defenseless Red Raiders
Leonard Fournette, the nation's leading rusher at the halfway point of this season's collegiate schedule, will try to return to form against a porous Texas Tech defense in the Texas Bowl tonight. The LSU sophomore was held in check against SEC opponents Alabama, Arkansas, and Ole Miss last month, but should rack up big yardage against the Raiders. The battle will feature LSU's rushing attack against the nation's top ranked passing attack. LSU finished the season 8-3, 5-3 in the SEC while Texas Tech finished 7-5, 4-5 in the Big 12.
