SMU sophomore WR Reggie Roberson brought in seven catches for 116 yards in a 28-18 loss to Memphis on Friday.

Roberson played second-fiddle to James Proche (12/134/2) in this one, but it's another strong effort from the breakout star for the Mustangs. Unfortunately, his touchdown streak ends at four games, but he does pick up a hundred yards for the third time in four games, and fourth overall. Don't be surprised if Roberson has similar numbers -- with a touchdown this time -- next Saturday against Tulsa.

SMU redshirt junior WR James Proche registered 12 receptions and 134 yards with two touchdowns in a 28-18 loss to Memphis on Friday.

Proche (5'11/190) was outstanding -- again -- for the Mustangs, and it's the third time that the junior wideout has gone over double-digits this season. The two touchdowns also give him double-digit scores on the year, and he also went over the thousand-yard mark. Long story short, Proche has been excellent in 2018. Unfortunately this one comes in a losing effort. Expect another big game against lowly Tulsa next Saturday.
Nov 17 - 1:00 AM

SMU redshirt junior QB Ben Hicks completed 29-of-55 passes for 344 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in a 28-18 loss to Memphis on Friday.

The Mustangs couldn't run the ball on Friday night (25 attempts for 25 yards), so Hicks and the SMU offense threw the ball. A lot. And with mediocre success. James Proche and Reggie Roberson made the quarterback look decent at times -- and there were moments where it was vice versa, to be fair -- but overall, a lackluster performance, especially considering the magnitude of the game for SMU. The Mustangs will look to rebound and get that sixth win next Saturday against Tulsa.

Memphis redshirt junior QB Brady White threw for 226 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions on 18-of-31 passing in a 28-18 victory over SMU on Friday.

We've seen plenty of highs and plenty of lows for White in 2018. We saw a bit of both for the redshirt junior against the Mustangs on Friday. He had completed 70 percent of his passes in his last two contests, but he wasn't nearly as accurate against SMU, and his two interceptions almost became costly. White clearly has talent, but his inconsistency is one of the reasons why the Tigers probably aren't going to play for an AAC title. He'll close out the year against Houston next Friday.
Nov 17 - 12:53 AM

Memphis junior RB Patrick Taylor Jr. ran for 112 yards with two touchdowns on 20 carries in a 28-18 victory over SMU on Friday.

Darrell Henderson left for a moment against the Mustangs on Friday, and while he was able to return and ran for 76 yards himself, the best tailback on the night for the Tigers was Taylor Jr. The 6-foot-3, 223-pound bruiser was able to bust through tackles, but also showed off his underrated speed. If Henderson is healthy he's going to be the go-to, but Taylor is more than capable of putting up big numbers, as we've seen. Another strong game is possible next Friday against Houston.
Nov 17 - 12:50 AM

Memphis redshirt junior TE Joey Magnifico scored two touchdowns and picked up 43 yards on five receptions in a 28-18 victory over SMU on Friday.

The points did not come as many (everyone) expected, but Magnifico was able to find the end zone twice. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound tight end also scored in the win over Tula last week, and he's up to four touchdowns on the season. Brady White likes to spread the ball around, but it appears he's found an end-zone friend in the junior tight end. Magnifico and the Tigers take on Houston next Friday.
Nov 17 - 12:47 AM

New Mexico junior QB Sheriron Jones completed 8-of-13 passes for 104 yards with an interception and ran for 56 yards in a 45-14 loss to Boise State on Friday.

Jones (6'3/196) had some moments on Friday that suggested there's reason for optimism going forward, but there were just as many moments that reminded you why New Mexico is 1-5 in conference play. It's worth mentioning that the former Tennessee quarterback is still getting used to this system, but he has to be more of a threat with his arm for the Lobos to compete with teams like the Broncos. New Mexico will take on Wyoming to close out the year next Saturday.
Nov 17 - 12:38 AM

Boise State senior QB Brett Rypien completed 17-of-27 passes for 222 yards with three touchdowns in a 45-14 thrashing of New Mexico on Friday.

Rypien started out red-hot in this one, and threw two touchdowns on his first two drives; both to Sean Modster. He connected with Modster again for touchdown number three, but he had much less success after the first quarter. Still, a strong game for one of the more underrated quarterbacks in the country. He and the Broncos have a must-win game next Saturday against Utah State.
Nov 17 - 12:34 AM

Boise State junior RB Alexander Mattison ran for 145 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries in a 45-14 victory over New Mexico on Friday.

Mattison's touchdown put the game away at 38-14, and the 41-yard stroll into the end zone also put him over a thousand yard mark for the second straight season. Amazingly, this makes 10 straight seasons where the Broncos have had someone reach that mark, the longest active streak in college football. Mattison will look to continue his strong season in a huge game against Utah State next Saturday.
Nov 17 - 12:31 AM

Boise State redshirt senior WR Sean Modster brought down nine catches for 129 yards with three touchdowns in a 45-14 victory over New Mexico on Friday.

Modster has scored in only three games this year, but he still has seven touchdowns on the season. Nothing wrong with scoring touchdowns in bunches. He also went over the century mark for the third time this season, and he's been one of Brett Rypien's most reliable targets in 2018. Boise State improves to 9-2, and they'll have a monster game next Saturday against Utah State that will determine the MWC Mountain champion.
Nov 17 - 12:29 AM

Boise State junior WR John Hightower (ankle) is out for Friday's contest against New Mexico.

Another missed game for the junior, who didn't play against Fresno State with a high-ankle sprain. Khalil Shakir is also out, so the Broncos are short on wideouts for their contest with the Lobos.
Nov 16 - 9:55 PM

Boise State freshman WR Khalil Shakir (undisclosed) is not playing on Friday against New Mexico.

No reason was given. The four-star signing hasn't been a huge part of the offense, but the Broncos are beaten up at wideout right now, and Shakir (6'0/178) has become more involved in the past few weeks. We should have an idea for his status going forward next week.
Nov 16 - 9:53 PM

Iowa State freshman QB Brock Purdy has the highest rating on play-action passes, according to Pro Football Focus.

When Purdy has attempted a pass after play-action, his passer rating is astounding 145.4. That's better than Kyler Murray (141.8) Tua Tagovailoa (141.7) and Dwayne Haskins (140.1). Purdy (6'1/202) has been outstanding since taking over as the starter, and he's currently 5-0 as the starter. The future in Ames is very, very bright.
Nov 16 - 8:16 PM

Oklahoma junior DE Amani Bledsoe will participate in Senior Day ahead of Saturday's game against Kansas.

Bledsoe is currently suing the NCAA for an extra year of eligibility after having a year taken away from him due to a suspension that stems from a PED violation. There's been no conclusion to the lawsuit, but it's entirely possible Saturday's game against the Jayhawks will be his last home game for the Sooners.
Nov 16 - 7:43 PM

Marshall senior DB Kereon Marshall was awarded a fifth year of eligibility.

Marshall (5'11/177) came over as a transfer to the Thundering Herd in 2017, but appeared in just two games. There's a chance he'll have to sit out two games next year in order to meet the requirements, but either way, the defensive back will get a chance to return to what should be a solid Marshall club in 2019.
