Derrius Guice ran for a school-record 285 yards with four touchdowns and Danny Etling threw for 324 yards and two scores to give short-handed Louisiana State a 54-39 victory over Texas A&M on Thursday night.
The Tigers were playing without star running back Leonard Fournette and leading tackler Kendell Beckwith because of injuries. But Guice and Etling did plenty to allow LSU (7-4, 5-3 SEC) to handle Texas A&M, and gave the Tigers a 300-yard passer and a 200-yard rusher in the same game for the first time in school history.
It certainly wasn't the first time Guice has had a big game this year, with Fournette struggling with an ankle injury for a big chunk of the season. His performance pushed his career-high rushing total to 1,249 and his four touchdowns were a career high. The game gave him one more yard than Fournette gained to set the school's single-game rushing record last month.
