Chryst was pleased that RB Ray Graham finally felt that he was “back” against Temple, after struggling at times during his recovery from a torn ACL.

“I hope he wakes up the same way on Saturday,” Chryst said. “So much of coming back from injury is gaining confidence in yourself, and I think that does help.”

He added that Graham’s influence in the locker room has been a major boon to the team.
