Kentucky Wildcats (0-1)

Sept. 10th @ Florida – 3:30 PM – CBS

The Wildcats rallied to a comfortable lead in the first half, only to be left behind on a 34 point unanswered run by Southern Miss. Walker didn’t have any offensive stats, but was featured as the team’s starting punt returner.

29 Mason King – P

Sept. 10th @ Syracuse – 8:00 PM – ESPN2

The Cardinals absolutely dominated Charlotte, winning 70-14. The offense was almost unstoppable, so Mason King didn’t get too much action on the night in his first collegiate start. However, the lopsided victory did allow Tyler Haycraft and Nathan Scheler to get some playing time.

30 Malik Carr- LB
75 C.J. Phillips – OL

Sept. 10th vs. Virginia Military Institute – 6:00 PM – OVC Digital Network

Southern Methodist University (1-0) 

56 Michael Sehlinger – LS

Sept. 10th @ 23 Baylor – 2:30 PM

SMU won their previous matchup against North Texas 34-21. They’ll have to be on their A-game to defeat a Baylor team that doesn’t seem to have dropped off production from last year.

Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks (0-1) 

4 George Stone III – LB

Sept. 10th vs. West Alabama – 7:00 PM – ESPN3

Western Kentucky Hilltoppers (1-0) 
49 Jake Collins – K
51 Clark Campbell – LB

Sept. 10th @ 1 Alabama – 3:30 PM – ESPN2

It doesn’t get much bigger than playing the defending national champion in Tuscaloosa. The Hilltoppers made short work of Rice, winning 46-14, but they will have a lot of work to do if they want to dethrone the #1 team in the nation. Jake Collins picked up where he left off last year, averaging 47.5 yards off two punts.

See someone missing? Let us know and we’ll make sure to add them the list.
