Looking to spark his rushing attack, Fulmer will start Tailback LaMarcus Coker against the Tigers

Coker had 8-carries for 46-yards, including this 89-yard romp for a touchdown last week vs Marshall.

He started the season behind Arian Foster and Montario Hardesty....

Foster has been out with a sprained ankle..

Hardesty started last week.

Both Hardesty and Coker are Redshirt Freshmen.

Fulmer's also changing starting Centers..

Redshirt Freshman Josh McNeil takes over for Michael Frogg, a former Walkon.
