UMass RB to play in Big House where he graduated
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Massachusetts running back Mike Cox acknowledges it will be weird being a visitor at Michigan Stadium after graduating in the iconic venue several months ago.
Cox has taken advantage of an NCAA rules that allowed him to be a graduate transfer for the Minutemen in his last year of college eligibility.
He has run for a team-high 32 yards in two blowout losses after playing sparingly for the Wolverines.
Cox says UMass "definitely" has a chance to stun No. 17 Michigan on Saturday.
The Wolverines are hoping rack up rushing yards, without relying on quarterback Denard Robinson, and to stop the run much better than they did in a lopsided loss to Alabama and lackluster win over Air Force.
