Shreveport, La. Brandon Boykin’s teammates were giving him all kinds of kudos after his school record-setting kickoff return for a touchdown sparked Georgia’s victory over Texas A&M; in the Independence Bowl.
Boykin wanted none of it, though. To hear him tell it, all he did was run.
“The kick return that I had I really couldn’t take credit for that,” Boykin said. “The kick was short and my blocking, I felt like it parted just like the Red Sea.”
His third kickoff return for a score of the season — an 81-yarder late in the second quarter — hardly qualified as a miracle, but it was just what the Bulldogs needed to fuel a 44-20 victory on Monday.
