Another college football Saturday has come and gone, but for many unfortunate victims in South Carolina, they are left without far more due to devastating floods that's left death and destruction in its wake.

A similar tragedy hit Leonard Fournette and his hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana, when Hurricane Katrina hit them 10 years ago.

After rushing for 158 yards and a touchdown in LSU's 45-24 victory over  South Carolina on Saturday, Fournette delivered an awesome message to the state of South Carolina and stated his desire to auction off his game-worn jersey to help the recovery effort.

And the NCAA said yes!
