DURHAM, N.C. – The Breakdown with Dave Harding series looks to one of Duke’s 2018 returners with a deep dive into Brittain Brown’s 34-yard touchdown run in the second quarter against Baylor on September 16, 2017.
The Blue Devils and Bears were deadlocked at 7-7 before Brown ripped off a 34-yard march to the end zone. Brown took a first-and-10 handoff and scored his second career touchdown. The score gave Duke a lead it would not relinquish in starting the season with a 3-0 record.
A 2018 preseason All-ACC selection by Athlon Sports (3rd team), Lindy’s Sports (3rd) and Phil Steele’s College Football Preview (4th), Brown is Duke’s leading returning rusher from a season ago. The Canton, Ga., product is one of just three returning running backs in the ACC to have registered 700 or more rushing yards, seven or more rushing TDs, 10 or more pass receptions and 150 or more receiving yards in 2017. Brown will enter 2018 having scored a rushing touchdown in four consecutive games.
