Griz Try to Contain Chants RB Taliaferro

Posted: Updated:

It's going to be cold at Washington-Grizzly Stadium on Saturday. We'll see if Coastal Carolina can handle the frigid temperatures. Meanwhile, we'll see if the Griz can contain handle the Chanticleers beast of a running back.

At 6 foot 2 inches, 230 pound Senior Lorenzo Taliaferro is a Walter Peyton award finalist who set the school record this season with 1,487 yards rushing.  He was good enough to earn Big South Conference Offensive Player of the Year award honors. The Griz have scouted him as a patient runner who runs straight down hill and does a good job of getting through the holes his O-line gives him. The griz added that he's a lot like New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs and that defending his style of play is right in their wheel-house.

"I think we're both, me and Tonga and everyone else in the front 7 and in back are really, really excited to have someone try to run the ball straight at us because I think we'd all agree that's what we're best at handling and practicing against these big guys all Fall camp, to have another team come against us and try to run the ball down our throat, I'm super excited and can't wait," said Griz Senior DL Alex Bieneman.

The Griz and Chants will play this Saturday at 12pm noon in Missoula in the 2nd round of the FCS Playoffs.
