The quarterback threw for 3,449 yards and 27 touchdowns while rushing for 986 yards and 14 touchdowns this season. He capped his season by throwing for 453 yards and three touchdowns in the Orange Bowl vs. Georgia Tech.

Fournette rushed for 1,034 yards and 10 touchdowns last season for LSU. The freshman had some games where he never got going, but had five games of over 100 yards, including 146 yards in the season finale vs. Texas A&M and 143 yards in the Music City Bowl vs. Notre Dame.
