UofL FOOTBALL | It will take a team effort to contain Dalvin Cook

10/14/2015 08:26 PM

The Florida State Seminoles former Heisman Trophy winner is taking snaps in the NFL now, but they have a new candidate making a name for himself in a hurry. Only a sophomore, Running Back Dalvin Cook is doing the heavy lifting for a FSU offense scoring about 30 points a game.

In five games this season, Cook has 88 carries for 792 yards (average of 9 yards per carry) and eight touchdowns, one of which came in the closing second of the Seminoles win over rival Miami last Saturday. He is averaging over 150 yards per game.

At today’s post-practice press conference, Louisville Defensive Coordinator Todd Grantham talked about what the Cards need to do to contain one of college football’s most talented backs.

Here is Grantham’s full press conference from today’s practice:
