How many times will Braxton carry the ball against UCF?

i dont think urban was thrilled with how often braxton tucked it and ran, i think theyll overcompensate a little bit and make him pass more often this week

Are you referring to scramble situations, or out of the option? I think he made great reads on option plays, with one obviously going for a touchdown

Some of his zone-read/option plays were good, but that was later in the game. In the first quarter it seemed like they shut the zone-read down. He ran 17 times due more so to his reads on the zone-read. I think Meyer even brought it up that because of the way Miami attacked the zone-read, it would often force Miller to keep the ball instead of being able to hand it off to Hyde, Brown, or Dunn.

If Miller does get hurt, KG will fill in just fine.

That's his bread and butter..I think over 15 every game to be honest. Until he develops a better pocket presence, he'll be looking to run a lot.

I think once he settles down it will be roughly 10-15 times a game including scrambles. It really depends on how teams play the speed option and zone-read.

I mean if we run 85 plays on offense, he's going to be carrying a lot.  Let's say the RBs get it 45 times, which is a ton, then he passes it 25 times, that's still 15 carries
