MIAMI GARDENS, FL – OCTOBER 14: Travis Homer /

Running back Travis Homer had big shoes to fill on Saturday. Mark Walton was off to an outstanding start to this season before suffering numerous recurrences to an ankle injury he initially suffered against Toledo. The ankle required season-ending surgery after the victory over Florida State.

Homer ran the ball 20 times for 170 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for another 18 yards and another touchdown. He ran with power and purpose. Homer also showed breakaway speed. Homer also spoke after the game.

Miami Sophomore RB Travis Homer
On what was going through his mind with so many big plays…

"“I mean you know that’s all great but I couldn’t have done that without my line, quarterback, receivers, and just everyone.”"

On how much of Mark Walton’s game rubs off on him…

"“In the running back room I know we all feed off each other and the energy we bring to each other is great. We can learn from each other.”"

On the confidence he has in his team…

"“I had 100% confidence in my team.”"

On what was going through his mind in the rain running for a touchdown…

"“I just got to do what I do for the team.”"

On the offensive line…

"“I’m very proud of them, like I’ve said before, I couldn’t do anything without them.”"

On the running back room at Miami…

"“Everyone in that running back room, no matter what, we are going to come in and do what we can for the team. Not much to be said.”"

At the beginning of the season, no one could have predicted that Homer and Langham would become the big play players to lead them to wins the last two weeks. It’s a testament to Mark Richt and his coaching staff getting everyone ready to play when their number is called.
