Leonard Fournette scampered through the Ole Miss defense for 284 yards as LSU handed the Rebels a 38-21 defeat on Saturday at Tiger Stadium.

The Tigers were a -8.5-point favorite in the win, and managed to turn a profit for their supporters. The combined score dipped UNDER the total, which closed at 60.0.

Leonard Fournette rushed for 284 yards, while Derrius Guice added 57 yards in the win. Malachi Dupre and Travin Dural added 52 and 48 receiving yards respectively.

Chad Kelly rushed for 56 yards for Ole Miss, while Akeem Judd added 39 yards. Chad Kelly threw for 209 yards for the Rebels, while receivers Demore’ea Stringfellow and Van Jefferson had 92 and 43 yards respectively.

Ole Miss was outgained by LSU 515-325 yards in Saturday’s match, while the important battle of first downs was won 20-19 by the Tigers.

The time of possession battle favored LSU as their offense was on the field for 32:13, longer than the 27:47 of their opponents.

LSU heads into a Week 10 battle against Alabama. Ole Miss, meanwhile, will have their next action against Auburn.

BATON ROUGE, La. — It started with a 1-yard loss.

And then, in a purple-and-gold flash, Leonard Fournette went off.

After missing the last two games with a gimpy ankle, Fournette shredded the Ole Miss defense for a school-record 284 yards on 16 carries and touchdown runs of 59, 76 and 78 yards to power No. 25 LSU to a 38-21 victory over No. 23 Ole Miss on Saturday night at Tiger Stadium.

“I’ve never been a part of a player like Leonard, to be honest,” LSU interim coach Ed Orgeron said. “He’s dynamic. I think he’s the best player in the country.”

As incredible as Fournette’s 17.8-yard rushing average was, he produced an even more incredible inside-the-numbers performance. His next six carries after the 1-yard loss on LSU’s second series went for 59, 5, 24, 8, 76 and 78 yards — a surreal 41.7-yard average — and three touchdowns.

No wonder Orgeron, when asked earlier in the week if Fournette might be able work his way back into the lineup in light of backup Derrius Guice’s 325 yards rushing in the previous two games, cut that question off at the verb: “He’s the first one off the bus, my man.”

Fournette smashed the LSU single-game rushing record of 250 yards set by Alley Broussard in a 2004 game against Ole Miss. And his ankle is still not 100 percent.

“I’m still dealing with it,” said Fournette, who added that his mother sent him a Scripture verse before the game about dealing with pain. “I’ve had it all (high ankle sprain, low ankle sprain and a bone bruise). It’s never healed since camp.”

Orgeron said Fournette looked fit and ready when he saw him go full speed in practice Monday.

“You can never tell, but on Monday he looked awfully good,” Orgeron said. “He looked fresh and ready. And, obviously, the offensive line must have blocked tremendously well.”

Fournette did not play in the final eight minutes, even though the SEC single-game rushing record of 321 yards (held by Frank Mordica of Vanderbilt in 1978 and Darren McFadden of Arkansas in 2007) was in sight.

Ole Miss, notorious for starting quickly, jumped out to a 10-0 lead on a 15-yard pass from Chad Kelly to Van Jefferson and a 46-yard field goal by Gary Wunderlich.

But Fournette finally made his presence felt as LSU (5-2, 3-1 SEC) bounced back to take a 21-13 lead. His first run off right tackle was just a quick pitch from the I formation, and he outraced the Rebel secondary into the end zone.

Then after quarterback Danny Etling found D.J. Chark open on a blown coverage for a 40-yard score to put LSU up 14-10, Fournette took another pitch around the right side for a 76-yard TD.

Ole Miss (3-4, 1-3) came back to the tie the game at 21 just before halftime with a sack fumble against Etling that led to Akeem Judd’s 2-yard run and a successful two-point conversion.

But on LSU’s first play of the second half, Fournette broke open the game again by taking the ball off right tackle, stiff-arming cornerback Deontay Anderson 20 yards downfield and ran the rest of the way — 78 yards in all — untouched. That gave LSU a 28-21 lead.

The Tigers added a 44-yard field goal by Colby Delahoussaye and a 6-yard run by Guice in the fourth quarter in shutting out the Rebels 17-0 in the second half. The LSU defense was extremely sticky in the second half, forcing Ole Miss into three consecutive three-and-outs to start the third quarter, intercepting Kelly on the fourth drive and forcing another three-and-out.

Orgeron called defensive coordinator Dave Aranda the key to LSU’s suffocating defense.

“He’s a cool cucumber out there,” Orgeron said. “He’s like a mad scientist. He’s a tremendous football coach.”

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze was noncommittal when asked if he felt defensive coordinator Dave Wommack could fix the defensive problems.

“It’s been a battle,” Freeze said. “Dave Wommack has been tremendous for me and I owe him a lot. We address staff issues every week, and we’ll continue to do that.”

LSU has a week off to prepare for a home showdown on Nov. 5 against No. 1 Alabama.

“After we watch their tape, we might not be as excited,” Orgeron said. “We’re going to be excited to play a very good football team. We’re going to be up for the challenge. They have very good athletes and they’re very well coached, but so are we.
