UAB Blazers Game Notes
Dylan Hopkins went 15-for-23 for 231 yards, one touchdown, and one interception against Charlotte on Saturday. He also rushed 10 times for 103 yards and a score. Don't expect this on the ground from Hopkins. He came into this game with 10 rushing yards total on the season. The passing numbers, unfortunately, are pretty much his usual offering.
Western Kentucky Hilltoppers Game Notes
Austin Reed completed 32 of 49 passes for 278 yards and two touchdowns during Saturday's 35-17 win over MTSU. He also rushed 12 times for 39 yards and a score. That's back-to-back games with two passing TDs and one on the ground for Reed. He adds a little value on the ground, but it's the 21 passing scores through seven games that really stand out.
