Leonard Fournette ran all over Eastern Michigan in No. 9 LSU's 44-22 victory Saturday, rushing for 233 yards and three touchdowns on 26 carries.

In the win, the 6-foot-1, 230-pound halfback accomplished something Emmitt Smith and Herschel Walker were never able to do during their collegiate careers, according to Nola.com's Jim Kleinpeter.

Smith and Walker are the only SEC HBs, other than Fournette, with at least two-straight 200-yard rushing performances. Fournette just did it for the third straight game, with yet another 200-plus yard day on the ground against the Eagles.

The New Orléans native now has 864 yards and 11 TDs through just four games and is still firmly in the driver seat for the Heisman Trophy.
