The stadium was beautiful, but the one thing they forget to check was the clocks.  Neither the game clock or the play clock was operational, leaving the ref to talk on his microphone more than he should. It slowed the game down, but it didn't slow down Boom.  75-yards in a single play.  One hell of a way to open a stadium. Tom Leach was so Geeked, we could hear him screaming this call through the windows of his radio booth. Williams finished the game with a career-high 135 yards on 10 carries, his second consecutive 100-yard game dating back to last year. Nobody has had back-to-back 100 yard rushing games since Derrick Lock in 2010. The 75-yard scamper was the longest of Boom's young career.
