(WBRZ News 2) Our Bayou Bengals' star Derrius Guice was looking a lot like the Heisman hopeful we saw a year ago on Saturday, breaking off a 33-yard score in the second half , where he found the end zone three times on Arkansas. The touchdowns are what people remember, but it's the linemen who help Guice get those tough 4 and 5 yard runs.
"I think it sends a message of physical football," said Ed Orgeron on Monday. "When I watched LSU and I played against LSU, coached against LSU, they always had that physical mentality that, hey, man, we're coming after you, see if you can stop it. And he's done that several times. And when he does that, I think it uplifts the team."
And Guice, over the last three games, is bringing that physical run game his coach is talking about. Guice is averaging 160 yards per game in that span, running the ball for more than 7 yards per carry.Derrius is just 71 yards away from having back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons for LSU.
