LSU running back Leonard Fournette’s presence wasn’t only felt at Scott Field in the Tigers’ 21-19 win Saturday.
Fournette was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Week for his career-high, 159-yard performance, and Tigers center Ethan Pocic was named the SEC’s Offensive Lineman of the Week.
Fournette had a career-high with 28 carries and averaged 5.6 yards a carry, scoring all three of the Tigers touchdowns in the narrow win against the Bulldogs. Pocic, along with left tackle Jerald Hawkins, had one of the better games of the Tigers’ offensive linemen.
According to LSU coaches, Pocic had the best game of his career with 16 knockdown blocks and no sacks or pressures.
