When you think you have Mike Davis down, he pops back up and rushes for 10 more yards.
That's what Kentucky defensive tackle Mike Douglas remembers about South Carolina's 5-foot-9 junior tailback, who had 21 carries for 106 yards and two touchdowns as well as three catches for 54 yards against the Cats last season.
"You definitely can't arm tackle him, that's for sure," Douglas said as Kentucky prepared to host South Carolina on Saturday night. "You've got to put a good lick on him and wrap him up.
"He's definitely a load for his size. He comes with a good bit of power, too. So that's the main thing, making sure you put a good hit on him and get him to the ground."
Never miss a local story.
Davis has been battling some nagging ankle and wrist injuries this season, but has still been one of the most consistent players for the Gamecocks' offense with 80 carries for 368 yards and three touchdowns.
When they're not having to plan for him, UK's coaches are smitten with Davis.
"He's got everything you want in a running back, just the balance, the speed, the vision," Kentucky Coach Mark Stoops said. "Very good player."
