Flint's Thomas Rawls expected to receive more carries against Ohio State this weekend.  The running back for the University of Michigan will get a chance to have a breakout game against the long time conference rival.  The starting running back was injured last week and its time for Rawls to step up.

Rawls came from one of the best schools in Michigan, Flint Northern, and now continues athletic success at U of M.  This past season Rawls has shown some improvement according to MLive.

"Thomas has improved a lot as the season went on and learned a little bit more about playing the position at this level,"Hoke told Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com."

So far this season Rawls averages 4.6 years a carry off 52 attempts.  That isn't a bad average per carry in college football.  Make sure you tune in this weekend to cheer him on. BIG RED!!!!
