College Football: For the second time in as many weeks, former Fort Campbell standout Antonio Andrews has been named the Sun Belt Conference offensive player of the week. Andrews had a career high 136 rushing yards in Western Kentucky’s 42-17 win over Southern Miss.
Andrews finished the night with 211 all purpose yards, the third time in four weeks he has surpassed the 200 yard plateau. College Sports Madness also named Andrews its Sun Belt offensive player of the week for the second time this season.
Meanwhile, the Courier Journal reports the Hilltoppers are waiting to see if safety Jonathan Dowling can play in the Sun Belt opener at Arkansas State Saturday. Dowling was ejected from Saturday’s game with Southern Miss in the third quarter after hitting wide receiver Tyre Bracken’s head following a touchdown. Dowling was ejected from the game, which means a one game suspension. However, coach Willie Taggart is waiting to see if the suspension will be reversed on appeal.
Kentucky coach Joker Phillips says freshman quarterback Jalen Whitlow will be used if needed against South Carolina Saturday. Maxwell Smith is expected to play this week after sitting out last week’s game at Florida with a shoulder injury. Pre game coverage at 4:30 on Lite 98.7.
