Heis­man watch

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS - — John Ma­her

Last year, run­ning back Mark In­gram won the Heis­man Tro­phy as a sopho­more and then broke the Heis­man win­ner’s bowl game jinx by rush­ing for 116 yards and two touch­downs against Texas. The pre­vi­ous two Heis­man win­ners, Ok­la­homa’s Sam Brad­ford and Florida’s Tim Te­bow, were both sopho­mores, but nei­ther could claim a sec­ond tro­phy. In­gram may not get enough car­ries to re­peat. Trent Richardson, a fresh­man last year, rushed for 80 yards in the SEC cham­pi­onship game against Florida and gained 109 against Texas. It could be hard to keep him off the field.

Run­ning back Mark In­gram beat the Heis­man jinx with a big ti­tle game, but this sea­son he’ll share the load with Trent Richardson.
