From an uncertain future to being the No. 1 running back, a year has made a huge difference for Matt Brown.
Has it ever. Brown got into then-new coach Steve Addazio’s dog house last spring when he was suspended and left to ponder his fate. Brown turned the tables, returned to the team and enjoyed a junior season in which he was 30th nationally in all-purpose yards with an average of 139 per game. The 5-foot-5 Brown ran for 916 yards (5.9 ypc) while teaming with Bernard Pierce to give the Owls a formidable one-two punch in the backfield. With Pierce having declared for the NFL draft after his junior season, Brown is the lead back on a team that is now a Big East member. Fri, Mar 30, 2012 11:40:00 AM
