LSU freshman running back Leonard Fournette helped to power the Tigers past Texas A&M on Thanksgiving night with 146 yards and one score on 19 carries.
Fournette’s production wasn’t the only highlight of the night, as the freshman destroyed Texas A&M safety Howard Matthews on a touchdown run in the second quarter.
Check out Fournette’s touchdown run and destruction of a Texas A&M defender in the process:

Mike London will return as Virginia’s coach in 2015. The school announced the news on Wednesday, just a few days before the Cavaliers’ rivalry matchup against Virginia Tech.
London was on the hot seat in 2014, but Virginia has a 5-6 record entering its finale against the Hokies.
In five seasons at Virginia, London is 23-37 and has one bowl appearance.
London will be on the hot seat once again in 2015, but it seems the Cavaliers are trending in the right direction. A bowl appearance next year would help secure London’s long-term outlook in Charlottesville.
#UVa admin has granted Mike London a reprieve. Now if they really want to help, bail on '15 opener at UCLA.— David Teel (@DavidTeelatDP) November 26, 2014
Virginia receiver Canaan Severin may have grabbed the catch of the year in the ACC during Saturday’s game against Miami.
Severin made a one-handed catch for a score in the second quarter, which gave the Cavaliers a 10-7 lead.
Check out Severin’s catch, which came just as a Miami defender was poised to make a play on the ball for an interception:
Oregon cruised to an easy win over Colorado in what could be the final home game for quarterback Marcus Mariota.
The Ducks didn’t need much help to beat the overmatched Buffaloes, but receiver Darren Carrington made one of the catches of the year in the Pac-12 with this reception off a deflection.
Check out Carrington’s reception:
A play in Saturday’s Michigan State-Rutgers game was truly a dream for an offensive lineman.
Connor Kruse is a former walk-on and a senior contributor for the Spartans. And in Saturday’s easy win over the Scarlet Knights, Kruse had the chance to record a rushing attempt on an end-around in the fourth quarter.
Yes, that’s correct: An offensive lineman had a chance to run the ball.
It’s the year of offensive linemen and offensive plays. Remember Arkansas’ Sebastian Tretola touchdown pass against UAB? Kruse’s rush wasn’t a huge success, but it’s an opportunity for the big lineman to get a chance to shine on Senior Day.

In his first game back from a four-game suspension, Georgia running back Todd Gurley suffered a torn ACL against Auburn and will miss the remainder of the 2014 season
Gurley rushed for 138 yards against the Tigers and helped to keep the Bulldogs’ East Division title hopes alive in a 34-7 win over the Tigers.
Prior to his suspension, Gurley was one of the leading candidates for the Heisman.
With Gurley sidelined for the rest of the year, true freshman Nick Chubb will carry the workload for Georgia’s offense. Chubb will also have help from Sony Michel and Keith Marshall at running back.
Gurley is expected to enter the NFL Draft this offseason. Despite the injury, the junior should be one of the first running backs off the board in the 2015 draft.
Florida has announced coach Will Muschamp won't return to Gainesville in 2015. The move comes after the Gators lost to South Carolina 23-20 in overtime in Week 12. Muschamp is expected to coach the last two games of the regular season for Florida.
Muschamp went 27-20 in four years at Florida but missed out on a bowl appearance last season with a 4-8 mark.
The Gators were just 17-15 in SEC play under Muschamp and struggled to find answers on offense over the last four years.

Minnesota’s Dan Lehman went viral during Saturday’s game against Ohio State. Lehman is a sideline staffer for coach Jerry Kill, and Lehman decided to eat an ice cream bar at the start of the second half.
Eating an ice cream bar is totally fine, but Lehman was enjoying the dessert in a game played in the snow and with temperatures around 20 degrees.
This is definitely a peak moment in Big Ten history.
