BATON ROUGE, LA (AP) - Anthony Jennings threw three scoring passes to Travin Dural, running back Leornard Fournette scored his first touchdown, and 12th-ranked LSU overwhelmed Sam Houston State 56-0 on Saturday night.
All three of Dural's catches went for touchdowns, including a 94-yarder on the first offensive play LSU (2-0) ran. Fournette carried 13 times for 92 yards, highlighted by a 40-yard run. The highly hyped freshman struck a Heisman Trophy-like pose after his 4-yard touchdown reception, drawing a stern lecture from coach Les Miles.
LSU freshman quarterback Brandon Harris ran for a 46-yard score and threw his first touchdown pass to fellow freshman Malachi Dupre.
Jared Johnson completed only 8 of 25 passes for 142 yards for Sam Houston (1-2), which plays in the second-tier Football Championship Subdivision. Johnson threw two interceptions twice, the second picked off by Rickey Jefferson at the LSU 2.
