Think Tevin King’s 112-yard, three-touchdown effort in his first collegiate game for Louisiana Tech two weeks ago was impressive?

How about this line from his second game, the Bulldogs’ 56-37 victory over Rice: 22 carries for 204 yards, an average of 9.3 yards an attempt.

In the first two games of his collegiate career, King has carried 35 times for 316 yards, a 9.0 per-carry average, and has scored three touchdowns.

 He has a long run of 59 yards and also has four pass receptions for 44 yards.

King and his Louisiana Tech teammates will travel to play at Illinois on Saturday.
