The days of Leonard Fournette and Derrius Guice are over, yet LSU appears to yet again have a quality running back producing big numbers out of the backfield.
LSU senior Nick Brossette is one of the nation’s leading rushers through two weeks, averaging 131 yards per game with a pair of touchdowns while averaging 6.39 yards per carry. When No. 12 LSU (2-0) travels to Jordan-Hare Stadium on Saturday to take on No. 7 Auburn (2-0), Brossette will have the full attention of Auburn’s defense.
“They always have a really good running back,” Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said. “He looks like he fits that mold from the guys that they’ve had in the past. They’re going to run the football and try to be physical. Their running back is a big part of that.”
