LSU freshman running back Leonard Fournette tied the Tigers' game against Texas A&M at 7 with a punishing touchdown run in the second quarter. 

Fournette took a handoff and ran up the middle, through a sizeable hole created by his offensive line. Aggies senior defensive back Howard Matthews was in perfect position to tackle Fournette in the secondary, but Fournette ran right over him and straight into the end zone.
