Leonard Fournette’s jersey from Saturday’s win over South Carolina will be auctioned off to benefit flood victims in SC. The NCAA tweeted that the auction would be allowed. Fournette eclipsed 1,000 yards with 158 yards on the ground in a 45-24 win over the Gamecocks. The game was technically a home game for South Carolina, but it was played in Baton Rouge due to the floods. LSU’s band played the Gamecocks’ fight song and Fournette gave this awesome speech that he prepared beforehand.

Our thoughts in prayers are with those in South Carolina that are dealing with the effect of the floods. This is a very cool move by LSU and the NCAA.

    Class act by a guy that is not only tremendous on the field, but has shown he is tremendous off the field as well. Prayers up for people suffering in SC. With that said, I’m SO GLAD we don’t have to play LSU this year. They’re my pick to represent the SEC in the playoff this year.

    Classy move by the school and by Fournette! Glad to hear the NCAA is letting him do something worth while. That is the true meaning of sportsmanship and compassion! Gained a fan today!

    In a nearly unprecedented move, The NCAA made a wise and equitable decision.
    Total class from Fournette. Wish him well.
