(LRN) — LSU running back Leonard Fournette's college football career is over. The junior, who has already said he intends to enter the 2017 NFL Draft, announced today that he would not play in the Citrus Bowl with the Tigers. He and head coach Ed Orgeron broke the news on Friday. Fournette says this decision is best for his future and he’s thankful for all of the support. Fournette said he plans to rest and rehab the ankle injury that has limited him to seven games this season. Fournette leaves LSU as the school's fourth leading rusher, with 3,755 career rushing yards. His 40 touchdowns are 3rd best in school history. During his sophomore season, Fournette set the school's season rushing record with 1,953 yards.

Brees had 389 yards passing on the day and it is the 21st time in his career that he’s thrown at least four touchdowns without any interceptions.
