Leonard Fournette has been a beast this season. The favorite to win the Heisman Trophy could be just the fourth back to rush for more than 150 yards against the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Since head coach Nick Saban took over in 2007, only three previous backs done it. Two have been in recent years while one came during his first year with the Tide.

Darren McFadden surpassed that mark in 2007 with a 195. Then, Tre Mason had a 164 during the 2013 game in which Chris Davis had the return for a touchdown that shocked Alabama and its fans to the core.

Ohio State Buckeyes back Ezeikel Elliott had a Sugar Bowl record 230 yards against the Tide defense on the first of the year. He broke loose for a 54-yard run and an 85-yard run.

After the first game of the season was canceled vs. McNeese State, Fournette had rushed for at least a 150 or more yards in every game this season. In fact, he’s rushed for more than 200 yards three times.

In a three week stretch, Fournette had 705 yards. He had 228 vs the Will Muschamp-led Auburn Tigers defense in the third game of second game of the season.

He then had a season-high 244 yards against the Syracuse Orange in Week 4, before pounding out an additional 233 against Eastern Michigan the following weekend.
