Video Q&A: RB Noah Cain ‘real eager’ for his role this season

Noah Cain got off a to strong start last year, becoming the first freshman to score two rushing touchdowns in a Penn State season opener.

Cain appeared to be the team’s best running back early on, then didn’t get much playing time for several weeks. That led to  lot of questions for James Franklin, since people wanted to know why Cain wasn’t playing more.

It turns out Cain was dealing with an ankle injury that limited his playing time as the season went on. That opened the door for Journey Brown to become the No. 1 tailback

Brown had a sensational finish to the season, including a PSU bowl record 202 yards rushing in the Cotton Bowl victory over Memphis.

Here, Cain discusses what he learned last season and what he expects this year from himself and other running backs.
