Second positive: Bhayshul Tuten proved he’s a Power 5 running back
It was a rough start for Tuten through the first four games with the Hokies. Bowen struggled to find ways to get him the ball to show what he could do. Last week against Pittsburgh, Tuten had a breakout game, then followed that up with another strong performance against the Seminoles on national TV.
Tuten had just 29 yards rushing on eight carries and a touchdown, but he had the second-half kickoff return for a touchdown and had four catches for 25 yards out of the backfield. The former North Carolina A&T back has turned into a key piece of the offense going forward. Think of how much he would be behind an offensive line that plays better than what the Hokies have played.
Another thing that Tuten does is he opens things up for Drones both in the passing game and running game. Drones has added a different dimension to the offense with his scrambling ability and is another thing that opposing teams have to plan for.
Going forward, there is no reason to go away from Tuten in both the running game and passing game as he is starting to come into his own and proven to be a strong Power 5 back.
