With LSU and Texas Tech preparing for the upcoming AdvoCare V100 Texas Bowl in Houston, the Tigers and Red Raiders had some competitive fun in an annual rodeo series of events. One popular rodeo event? Chasing cows. LSU’s star running back, Leonard Fournette, wanted to give it a shot, but his head coach, Les Miles, apparently was no on board.
Texas Tech running back Jakeem Grant did reportedly give the cow chasing a try, and Fournette wanted to see what he could do. Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes was not witnessed participating in any of the rodeo events either.
Fournette figures to be in for a huge performance against Texas Tech in the Texas Bowl. Only two teams in the nation had a run defense allow more yards per game than Texas Tech, which likely means Fournette should pile up some big numbers. With that being the case, you can imagine why Miles wanted to make sure his top offensive player avoided any event that might cause even the slightest injury concern that would prevent Fournette from running.
