Scarbrough also scored a touchdown and recorded 19 yards on five carries during Saturday’s 38-10 win over the Hilltoppers.

But Scrarbrough has shared carries with fellow sophomore Damien Harris and freshman B.J. Emmons through his first two games, which Harris leading the group with 183 yards on 20 rushing attempts.
