Morehead State kicks-off 2015 at #12 James Madison

MOREHEAD, Ky. — The Morehead State football team gets its 2015 season underway Saturday at No. 12/13 James Madison. Kickoff at Bridgeforth Stadium is set for 6 p.m. ET.

This marks the second straight year the Eagles have opened on the road at a nationally-ranked team from Virginia. Last year, MSU lid-lifted the schedule at Richmond. MSU and James Madison last met in 2010 in Harrisonburg. Current quarterbacks coach Zach Lewis was the Eagles’ signal-caller in that contest.

Head Coach Rob Tenyer enters his third year, and is anxious to see how his team has improved over the summer and fall. Continue reading: Morehead State kicks-off 2015 at #12 James Madison

EKU rolls 52-10 over Valparaiso in season-opener

RICHMOND, Ky. – Five Colonels combined for a total of seven touchdowns as the Eastern Kentucky University football team rolled past visiting Valparaiso, 52-10, in its season-opener on Thursday night at Roy Kidd Stadium.

Eastern struck early, as a 36-yard pass from junior Kyle Romano to senior Joel Brown help set up a four-yard touchdown run by true freshman Ethan Thomas with 10:55 remaining in the first quarter.

Five minutes later, senior All-OVC cornerback Stanley Absanon intercepted a pass at the EKU 44-yard line and returned it 56 yards for another touchdown.

After the two teams exchanged field goals, another true freshman emerged on the scene for Eastern. With 4:02 remaining in the second quarter, freshman Arien Beasley took the second end of a reverse and scampered past the pylon from 11 yards out to make it 24-3 in favor of Eastern Kentucky.

Jeff Glover-01 (09-03-15 vs Valpo)

Jeff Glover moves upfield after making the catch.

A Jeff Glover touchdown catch from Bennie Coney took the Colonels safely into the locker room at halftime up on the Crusaders, 31-3.

 

It was, again, all EKU in the second half, as Coney and Glover hooked up for another touchdown – this one from 30 yards out – late in the third quarter to make it 38-3.

 

Two more EKU touchdowns followed, as Florida transfer Adam Lane and sophomore Kentayvus Hopkins both found pay-dirt for the first time as Colonels. The only Crusader touchdown came with 45 seconds left in the game as Jake Hutson scored from 16 yards out to make it 52-10.

UK’s starting fullback, Will Collins, “Bleeds Blue”

by Brent Ingram

Two things stand out about Will Thomas Collins, Kentucky’s starting junior fullback throughout fall camp.

One: He earns consistent praise from his position coach, Vince Marrow, who lovingly refers to him as a “thumper”.

Two: His nickname is “Taco Meat”.

BRUISER

A native of Jackson, Ky., Collins – who opened his career at NAIA Pikeville College in 2012 – has gone from scout-team, walk-on linebacker to UK’s starting fullback.

When he takes the field on Saturday for Kentucky’s season opener at 7 p.m. in The New Commonwealth Stadium it will fulfill a lifelong dream.

“When people used to ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would say a Kentucky football player. Not an NFL player but a Kentucky football player,” Collins said. “When I run out of that tunnel on Saturday, I can’t even tell you what it’s going to be like.”
