Coach Willie Taggart said Thursday there's "no doubt" sophomore rushing leader Marlon Mack, who has been nursing a mild hamstring strain, will play Saturday against SMU.

Mack, who sustained the injury on his final carry in the waning moments of last weekend's 28-20 victory against Connecticut, didn't practice Sunday. He suited up the last three practices but has been limited.

Taggart indicated he logged reps during Thursday morning's non-padded workout.

"We didn't tell him to go 100 mph, but we wanted to see him go and he got out and ran a little bit," Taggart said. "No issues, so that was good to see."

Mack (106 carries, 689 yards, three TDs) is seeking his fourth consecutive 100-yard rushing effort Saturday, which would tie the school record. At 1,730 career yards, he needs only 58 to move into fifth place on USF's all-time list.
