Running back Chris Vincent (22) had a solid performance on Saturday with five carries for 17 yards and one touchdown. Vincent displayed strength and toughness with his touchdown run by breaking three tackles. Head Coach Mike Bellotti said he is looking for Vincent to have the same kind of performance every time he touches the ball.
