TUSCALOOSA ( Few will disagree to the statement that the injury of Alabama State University Running back Mark Ingram turned out to be a boon for the team as it got to see the talent of running back Trent Richardson who stepped into the shoes of Mark Ingram on Saturday night against Penn State University. Trent Richardson came forward with some good play leading his team to post a 24-3 victory over the Penn State University team.

From the very beginning of the Saturday night game, Trent Richardson took control of the back area. The Alabama State University team that went with five wide receivers left Trent Richardson in the running back section to prove his worth. In the very first half of the game Trent Richardson had 102 yards against the Penn State University team that is known for its strong defense. However, the defense failed to stop speeding Trent Richardson who dexterously left behind the tackles and plowed his way. He scored on a 1-yard touchdown run. While the Penn State University defense boasted about the fact that they have not allowed a hundred yard run for a long time, Trent Richardson went on to break the record as he rushed for a total of 144 yards for 22 carries. Not only did he run but also went for four catches for 46 yards.

An elated Trent Richardson said to media sources after the game that the Saturday night game is something that he will remember for long. He maintained that he tried to “put the offense on my back and run with it”. The play has raised the team’s expectation from the player as coach Nicholas Lou Saban said that the player has played a fantastic game.
