There wasn’t a ton to celebrate offensively in the first half of LSU’s Citrus Bowl matchup with Notre Dame, but the Tigers’ sensational junior running back did manage to make yet another mark in the school’s record books.

Derrius Guice became the fifth running back in LSU history to reach 3,000 yards for his career in the first half of the game.Guice entered the matchup with Notre Dame needing just 24 yards to join the elite list of Tiger running backs. He reached the mark on his third carry of the game, racing 31 yards in style.

The milestone puts Guice in the company of Kevin Faulk, Dalton Hilliard, Charles Alexander, and Leonard Fournette as Tigers to surpass the 3,000 yard plateau. He entered the 2017 season 17th all-time with 1,823 rushing yards and now sits fifth, ahead of Harvey Williams and Joseph Addai.
