After moving from linebacker to running back in spring drills, Blasingame played in all 13 games at running back and on special team return units...

Blasingame finished the season second behind Webb with 449 rushing yards and 10 rushing touchdowns on 97 carries... He also registered four receptions... Blasingame impressed in the opener, rushing for 68 yards and a score against South Carolina...
