After the way the running backs were running early in the year, it looked like Al Borges would have to settle for a running back by committee system.
No running back was even close to establishing themselves as a go-to, workhorse running back who we're so used to seeing in the Big Ten.
In the blink of an eye, it seemed, Toussaint became that back.
He broke out in late October against Purdue and really started showing signs of becoming a great back.
He had a rough game a week later against Iowa, but his final three games were amazing.
He tore up three solid run defenses in Illinois, Nebraska and Ohio State, en route to a 1,000-yard season.
In fact, Toussaint averaged 5.81 yards per carry on the year, good for fourth in the Big Ten.
Only a sophomore, it's exciting to think of how good he may be next season.
