LSU running back Leonard Fournette may be remembered as one of the best running backs in the history the program and the SEC. Against Alabama however, he’s just average.
Fournette has run over opposing defenses week in and week out, but against Alabama Fournette has been nothing but average, never once standing out against the Tide. This season Fournette was described by Tigers coaches as the most determined player on the LSU roster heading into Saturday’s 10-0 loss to Alabama.
It didn’t matter.
Fournette may go down as a great running back in SEC history, but never far from that memory will be the memory of Fournette being dominated by the Alabama defense.
