Final Score: LSU 29 , Louisville 9
Louisville: Lamar Jackson is the youngest Heisman trophy winner and the 1st from Louisville. Jackson usually averages about 410 yards of total offense per game, but was held to 220 yards against LSU. He completed 10 of 27 passes for 153 yards and had a season-low of 33 yards rushing. Jackson was sacked eight times, and had no touchdowns. Their only points came from three Blanton Creque field goals.
LSU: LSU had an impressive performance, one that showed that the Tigers football program will be just fine after Leonard Fournette.
Derrius Guice, who replaced Leonard Fournette, continued to shine in the game, rushing for 138 yards. He also had a run designed to cut through the middle, but he cut back to the right and then left for a 70 yard TD run.
Guice upped his season rushing total to 1,387 yards and was named the game’s MVP for his efforts (pictured). Receiver Malachi Dupre gained a career-high of 139 yards on seven receptions.
An SEC team has won another 2016 bowl game!
* I’d just like to point out that Louisville and Tennessee ended their seasons with the same record, (9-4). www.floridacitrussports.com
