Fournette, Godchaux, Barnes LSWA Players of the Week
BATON ROUGE - Three weeks into the college football season and twice a state football player has earned honors on back-to-back weeks as LSU's Leonard Fournette made it two straight weeks as Louisiana Offensive Player of the Week.
The award is chosen by a panel of Louisiana Sports Writers Association members.
Also named on Monday, Davon Godchaux of LSU was named the defensive player of the week and Jonathan Barnes of Louisiana Tech was the special team's recipient.
Fournette rushed for 228 yards and three touchdowns and Godchaux had two sacks in LSU's 45-21 win Saturday in Baton Rouge over Auburn. Barnes had a career-high four field goals in Louisiana Tech's triple overtime win at Kansas State.
