100 yards rushing is the magic number under Les Miles
- by Doug Samuels 1 year ago
LSU (5-0, 2-0) and Florida (4-1, 2-1) square off this weekend in SEC play.
We saw an interesting note earlier this morning saying that when LSU has rushed for over 100 yards under Les Miles, and held their opponent to under 100 yards rushing, they are 47-0.
Florida brings in the nation's 20th ranked rushing attack, averaging 225 yards on the ground through their first four games (Bowling Green, Texas A&M, Tennessee, Kentucky).
Dating back to last season, the last time the Gators did not reach the 100 yard mark rushing was against Florida State in late November, when they finished with 54 yards on the ground in a loss. In their 13 games last season, Florida rushed for over 100 yards in 8 of those games. Each game that they failed to reach the century mark (Alabama, Auburn, Georgia and Florida State) resulted in a loss.
LSU will take on Florida in the swamp Saturday at 3:30pm ET on CBS.
