Not fast enough, however, to contain Cain, who was a juggernaut last night, rushing for 267 yards and two TDs on 19 carries. With QB Paul Turner (LSU commit) sitting out due to injury, the 4-0 Rebels relied on Cain to shoulder the load and he didn't disappoint.
"Our offensive line had its best outing of the year," Cain said, "and that's why I able to gain so much yardage. We mainly ran two plays: the toss sweep and a little counter. Most of the time, I cut the ball back inside, but I was also able to bounce it to the outside on some plays."
Cain's output last night was even more impressive when you consider that he didn't play four quarters.
"I got banged up a little in the second half - nothing serious," he said. "I broke a long run and then they took me out."
Cain's work ethic is nothing is nothing short of admirable.
"I'm on my way to work right now," he said early Saturday afternoon, "and I also went to work early this morning - at 7 A.M."
The Rebels have two huge games next on the agenda.
"We have Airline and Ouachita over the next couple of weeks. Airline is pretty good and Ouachita is undefeated. We need to pick it up and practice hard, and I think we'll be happy with the results," he said.
"It was a good game and I thought Tech was going to pull out the win," he said. "It was my second Tech game of the year (Cain also attended Tech/Grambling in Shreveport) and I talked to the coaches while I was there.
"I'm planning on going to see Stanford and Oregon State in a few weeks - maybe check out a few other schools and then make my decision."
