Former LSU RB Darrel Williams weighed in on Tigers’ bowl effort

On Wednesday current Kansas City Chiefs running back and former LSU Tiger, Darrel Williams met with the media. They are preparing for their season finale against division rival Denver this weekend.

Currently, they hold the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoff picture but a win plus a loss by Tennessee would give them the top seed. Williams has an opportunity to reach a milestone in the game against the Broncos. With just 37 yards on the ground and/or through the air, he will reach 1,000 yards from scrimmage. As far as the Texas Bowl was concerned, Williams was set to watch the game with a teammate and former Kansas State wide receiver Byron Pringle.

“I was supposed to go to Byron’s (Pringle) house and watch the game, but I didn’t,” Williams said. “We had a little struggle, we had our receiver playing quarterback. But I just like how those guys (LSU) came together as a team and they fought for each other. No matter what it was, what the situation was, they were all in together. They were willing to put whatever they needed to do on the line for the team. I’m proud of those guys.”

Williams was part of the team that went to the Texas Bowl in 2015 when they defeated the Texas Tech Red Raiders. He carried the ball just twice in that game but one of those went for a touchdown. Williams was the backup to starting running back Leonard Fournette.
