Western Kentucky defensive lineman Quanterus Smith was named the Sun Belt Conference defensive player of the week Monday. Smith had a career high 3.5 sacks in the Hilltoppers 26-13 win at Arkansas State last Saturday.
Tennessee coach Derek Dooley says he’s madder than he’s ever been about defensive breakdowns in last week’s 51-44 loss to Georgia, but says he’s encouraged by the play of the Vols offensive line and running attack. The Vols are off this week.
College Basketball: West Kentucky Star.com reported Monday Calloway Commonwealth Attorney Mark Blankenship said he plans to intensify efforts to reach a plea bargain for Murray State basketball player Zay Jackson.

Blankenship says he is concerned a Calloway County jury pool could be affected by comments in the case through social media. Jackson is charged with second degree assault after striking two people with his vehicle in the Walmart parking lot in Murray September 9th. Jackson is scheduled for arraignment October 12th.
NFL: Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker suffered no structural damage to his left shoulder which he reinjured in the first quarter of Sunday’s game at Houston.
