The late start last Saturday night at Tigers stadium had LSU fans worried early as Ole Miss jumped out to a 10 to nothing lead.  But what do you do when you fall behind at home and have the number one running back in the country?  Feed him the ball and that is exactly what the Tigers did.

Before fans knew it, LSU running back Leonard Fournette had ran up 16 carries for 284 rushing yards and three touchdowns.  Fournette had touchdown runs of 59, 76 and 78 yards and broke the old LSU school record previously held by Alley Broussard.

The Tigers beat Ole Miss 38-21 and improved to 5-2 on the season and this was the third straight win for interim head coach Ed Ogeron.  The win also gave LSU a boost in the polls.

The Tigers moved up to #19 in both the AP and Amway Coaches Polls.
