TEXAS, Sporting Alert – College football bowl game scores and recaps from the games that were played on Tuesday, 29, December 2015. LSU and Baylor finished season with bowl wins.

NO. 20 LSU 56, TEXAS TECH 27

HOUSTON — Leonard Fournette ran for 212 yards and four touchdowns and caught a pass for another score as No. 20 LSU defeated Texas Tech 56-27 in the Advocare V100 Texas Bowl on Tuesday night.

Fournette, who carried the ball 29 times during the contest, put the Tigers (9-3) ahead early in the first quarter with a score from 2-yards, before taking a 44-yard pass from Brandon Harris in the second quarter to give his team a 21-6 lead.

He also found the end zone with 43 and 4 yard runs in the third-quarter before finishing off a dominant performance with a 2-yard TD in the fourth-quarter en route to being named the Advocare V100 Texas Bowl MVP.

“This is a night that Leonard Fournette would have again and again and again,” LSU coach Les Miles said.

“I wouldn’t call it routine because he is not a routine runner, he’s a special back. But we would expect him to have nights like this. He’s fast and strong and capable.”

Brandon Harris went 13 of 22 on completed passes for 254 yards and a touchdown, and rush for another 41 yards and a score for the Tigers, while D.J. Chark ran for 86 yards, including a 79 yards touchdown to help setup the win.

LSU had 638 total yards on offense, including 384 yards on the ground from 40 rushing attempts.

Patrick Mahomes went 28 of 56 on passing for 370 yards and four touchdowns and Jakeem Grant took 10 catches for 125 yards and three scores for Texas Tech in the defeat, as the Red Raiders (7-6) who averaged over 200 yards rushing entering the game, were held to just 29 yards rushing for this contest.

The Tigers outscored Texas Tech 35-14 in the second half, including 21-7 in the third quarter.

NO. 17 BAYLOR 49, NO. 10 NORTH CAROLINA 38

ORLANDO, FL — Johnny Jefferson ran for 299 yards and three scores and No. 17 Baylor piled up 756 total yards on offense en route to beating No. 10 North Carolina 49-38 in the Russell Athletic Bowl on Tuesday night.

Jefferson’s rushing performance set a Russell Athletic Bowl record.

Devin Chafin ran for 161 yards and a score, Terence Williams had 16 carries for 97 yards and two touchdowns, while Lynx Hawthorne rushed for 63 yards and a TD for the Bears (10-3) who racked up 645 rushing yards.

The Big 12 conference powerhouses were without several key players, including star running back and Biletnikoff Award winner Corey Coleman (hernia surgery), as well as quarterbacks Seth Russell (neck injury) and Jarrett Stidham (broken ankle), and running back Shock Linwood (broken foot), but still managed to get the job done as they end a two-game skid in bowl outings.

“It just says we’re tough. Baylor’s whole identity is ‘physicality travels.’ That’s all we preach. That’s all we teach,” said Jefferson.

“So being physical today, we won the game.”

Senior quarterback Marquise Williams was 22 of 36 on passing for 243 yards and three touchdowns with an interception and ran for another 81 yards and two scores for North Carolina (11-3) which missed out at winning an unprecedented 12 games on the term.

Elijah Hood ran the ball 13 times for 118 yards for the Tar Heels, who posted 487 total yards on offense in the defeat.

“We didn’t get it done tonight, obviously,” North Carolina coach Larry Fedora said. “They were the better team out on the field tonight.”

He added: “They had a heck of a plan.”
