Jarveon Howard is proving to be the premier running back of the SWAC with his season-high 295-yard outing on Saturday.

In 4 games, Howard leads the conference with 576 yards (7.6 yards/rush), 144.00 yards per game, and six touchdowns.

The one concern for the Braves lies in the slow game starts for the offense. Rectifying a few minor defensive issues could have them again challenging Prairie View in the SWAC West division this season.
