LEONARD FOURNETTE TALK

Alabama coach Nick Saban

We thought he was absolutely the best ... one of the best running backs we’ve ever seen.

Graham Watson, Yahoo! Sports

LSU’s Leonard Fournette has been the Heisman favorite from the third week of the season and he’s done nothing since to lessen his chances. However, Fournette will have his toughest test on Nov. 7 when he takes on an Alabama defense that’s ranked fourth in the country.
