Dominique Brown To Start At Running Back Against South Florida

Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

After saying that the junior "ran like a man possessed" last week against UCF, Charlie Strong has decided to reward Dominique Brown by naming him as Louisville's starting running back against South Florida on Saturday.

Though U of L tasted defeat for the first time last Friday, it had nothing to do with the play of Brown. The converted quarterback carried the ball 12 times for 88 yards and two touchdowns, and also caught three passes for 41 yards. His play was so impressive that at one point fellow junior RB Michael Dyer told the coaching staff to keep Brown in the game even when it was Dyer's series to play.

Brown is the only one of Louisville's three main running backs who hasn't started a game this season, backing up both Dyer and Senorise Perry at various points. He enters Saturday second on the team in rushing yards (359) and touchdowns (4), but leads the Cards in average yards per carry (6.3).

I think this is a move folks have been wanting to see for a couple of weeks now. Let's see if Dom can take full advantage.
