Entering a crucial matchup with Auburn over the weekend, sophomore running back Brandon Bolden had grown accustomed to his role as the primary rusher for Ole Miss offensively.
In fact, Bolden topped the team's stable of backs before a trip to the Plains, having gained 426 yards rushing. But for the second week in a row, Bolden gave way to senior Dexter McCluster, who has emerged as Ole Miss' most productive backfield threat with back-to-back 100-yard performances.
And with McCluster's heroics has come a drop-off for Bolden, as the Baton Rouge, La. native notched a season low of 10 yards rushing in a 33-20 loss to the Tigers.
Shortly following practice Wednesday, Bolden spoke of his role and the improvements he's looked to make with four games remaining in the 2009 season.
