IThe Orlando Sentinel's Illiana Limon has been ranking the nations college football teams. UTEP checks in at #85. Limon has some nice quotes from UTEP head coach Mike Price.
Excerpt: "Price said an injury was the biggest turning point of Buckram’s career. Buckram lost weight and muscle mass during track season, but an injury forced him to skip track competition during his sophomore year. As a result, a beefier and brawnier Buckram rushed for 1,594 yards and 18 touchdowns on 259 carries as a junior last season. "He was so tough and could really break tackles like you wouldn’t believe," Price said. "We think he’s going to have a really special senior year."
