Patrick Carr ready for his role in UH backfield

Carr, Texas transfer Kyle Porter, Mulbah Car and Chandler Smith are all in the mix for playing time at running back. And that’s fine with Carr, who ran for a career-best 139 yards with two touchdowns in a 48-17 win over Tulane.

“It’s really important to have that many guys in the room because it’s going to help down the road, because as a running back, you don’t have that longevity, like you get hit almost every play,” Carr said. “I really appreciate we got that many guys.

“We’ll push each other every day and we’re always competing. It’s like who has the fastest speed, stuff like that. We’re always competing with each other.”
