    Latavius Murray Lays An Egg In NFC Title Game

    Monday, January 22, 3:00 PM

    Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray totaled only 29 all-purpose yards as the Vikings were bounced from the playoffs by the Eagles 38-7. Murray saw only six carries in the game for 18 yards, his lowest carry total since September 24th. Turnovers really took the Vikings out of their game plan and Murray never had a chance to get going. Murray came on slowly this season and never got a true opportunity until rookie standout Dalvin Cook tore his ACL. Once given the chance, Murray put up eight rushing touchdowns, 842 yards and had eight games of 68 rushing yards or more. Murray may struggle to repeat those numbers next year with Cook re-entering the mix but certainly has helped his value heading into the offseason.

    College

    Murray was offered scholarship to Boston College, Connecticut, Syracuse and Maryland. He finally attended the University of Central Florida, Orlando the city where he was born. His father, Paul Murray still resided at Titusville, a short distance from the school and this gave him the opportunity to spend some time with his son, sharing his success on the field.

After posting over 1,000 yards rushing, Murray was nominated to the All-Conference USA First Team. In 2010, he was named the MVP of the Liberty Bowl for his impressive performance against Georgia.
