Watson and Cotton defend running game

I’m not sure what the big fuss was this week about the NU running game?  There wasn’t an issue with the offensive line.  The running backs are not overhyped.  The coaches were just taking what Western Michigan was giving them…plenty of opportunities to throw the football.
Offensive line coach Barney Cotton talks about his unit, and coordinator Shawn Watson explains what you do when the opposition’s safeties play up in the box.
