ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit includes Derrius Guice, LSU among top Week 8 performances

LSU kept rolling with a 40-24 win over Ole Miss this past Saturday, and it was a showing that impressed ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit.

Herbstreit revealed his top performances of Week 8 on Tuesday, including both LSU and Tigers running back Derrius Guice on his list. Alabama linebacker Rashaan Evans was also one of the five players listed by Herbstreit.

LSU won its third straight game, following up wins over Florida and Auburn with a victory over Ole Miss. The Tigers have rebounded nicely after a 3-2 start to the season.

Guice led the way for the Tigers, rushing for 276 yards and a touchdown in the victory. He rushed for 126 yards in the first half, eclipsing his previous season high in just two quarters.

Evans played through injury to lead Alabama’s 45-7 win over Tennessee, collecting six tackles, including a sack.

Several other of Herbstreit’s top performers have SEC ties. FAU head coach Lane Kiffin is a former Tennessee coach and Alabama offensive coordinator. Memphis quarterback Riley Ferguson began his career at Tennessee.
