Donald Buckram, who had career day to lead the UTEP football team to a 38-12 rout of NM State on Saturday night, has been tabbed the UTEP Athletics Miner of the Week.
Buckram contributed a career-high of 113 yards of UTEP's 156 rushing yards on 14 carries and scored two of UTEP's five touchdowns to bring back the silver spade and brass spittoon to El Paso.
The junior has rushed for over 100 yards in two of UTEP's first three games averaging 84 yards per game and 6.8 yards per carry. He is the first Miner back with multiple 100-yard rushing games in a season since 2007.
