“The first time the (B-backs) would get to (the linebackers) is 4-to-5 yards down the field and then they would turn it into 6 or 7 most of the time because they would get their pads down and run,” Johnson said.
Quarterback TaQuon Marshall added 112 yards, most of which also came while following his big blockers up the middle.
“The guys that were tackling me were like third level guys,” Marshall said.
It wasn’t all pleasant for the Marshall and the B-backs though. Benson had two fumbles -- one of which came on a bad pitch from Marshall, while redshirt sophomore Quaide Weimerskirch and freshman Jerry Howard each had a fumble.
