Sophomore running back Derrius Guice broke the Louisiana State all-time rushing record on Thursday night. He had 285 rushing yards against the Texas A&M Aggies.
Guice also had four touchdowns in the Tigers 55-33 win over the Aggies.
In Oct. against the Ole Miss Rebels, Fournette set the record with 284 yards. He needed 16 carries to break the record, while Guice needed 37 carries.
Prior to Fournette breaking the record, Alley Broussard had 250 yards. He set the record in 2004, also against the Rebels, on 26 carries.
Guice is expected to have a full-time role next season as Fournette — who missed five games — is expected to enter the NFL Draft.
The 19-year-old surpassed 1,000 rushing yards with his performance on Thanksgiving. This was the second-time that he rushed for more than 200 yards this season.
On Nov. 12 against the Arkansas Razorbacks, Guice had 252 yards. He had three games, where he went for more than a 100 yards.
