In 2009 against Notre Dame, he ripped off a 53-yard run late in the game to set up his own two-yard touchdown run. That touchdown helped put the game away.
In 2010, Graham had a 64-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, to help seal off a 38-16 win over New Hampshire. He also had a 42-yard run against Miami that was the lone offensive highlight in a 31-3 loss. In his first career start nine days later against Florida International, Graham produced the second-highest output for a running back in school history with 277 yards.
Graham had touched the ball 27 times on Saturday, before breaking away for his 75-yard run that set up a touchdown on the next play in the fourth quarter. He may have some high expectations on his shoulder because of the way this system can benefit an all-purpose back. Graham responded to those expectations with a 200-yard performance to start the season.
