Georgia Southern redshirt senior S Antonio Glover has accepted an invite to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Glover was named an All-Sun Belt first-teamer for his work during the 2015 campaign. Said work included six interceptions, which tied a school record. In addition to his six picks, the 6-foot-1, 200-pound redshirt senior recorded 56 tackles (one for loss) with a singular sack. On the micro level, three of those interceptions and a season-high seven tackles came in the second game of the season, when he schooled Western Michigan. He'll have a chance to shine in front of NFL scouts when the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl kicks off on January 23.
Jan 3 - 9:58 PM

Georgia Southern junior QB Favian Upshaw rushed for 199 yards and four touchdowns in Wednesday's 58-27 win over Bowling Green in the GoDaddy Bowl.

Upshaw also completed 1-of-3 passes for 17 yards, but he was a true terror on the ground in the triple-option attack. Especially in the second half. That's when he scored all four of his touchdowns as the Eagles outscored the Falcons 35-0 after the break. The 6-foot-1, 170-pound junior averaged a silly 16.6 YPC. He entered the contest having rushed for more than 100 yards in just one game, but closed out the 2015 campaign on one heck of a high note.

Georgia Southern named Colorado State DC Tyson Summers as their next head coach.

The news of Summers' hiring first broke Sunday afternoon. It's official now. Summers replaces Willie Fritz, who took the head coaching job at Tulane earlier this offseason. Southern AD Tom Kleinlein said, "What we get in Tyson is someone who knows Georgia, someone who was born and raised in Georgia, someone who has recruited Georgia his entire career." Summers' introductory press conference is slated for Saturday. He's a first-time head coach.

According to FootballScoop, Colorado State DC Tyson Summers has been hired as Georgia Southern's next head coach.

The last of the coaching dominoes may have finally fallen. Should reports prove true, Summers would be filling the last available FBS head coaching gig. Georgia Southern's looking to replace Willie Fritz, who jumped ship when he accepted the head coaching job at Tulane. Summers has served as a defensive coordinator for UAB, Central Florida and Colorado State over the past four years. This would be his first head coaching job.

Georgia Southern junior RB Matt Breida rushed for 45 yards on eight carries before exiting with a lower leg injury in Saturday's 34-7 loss to Georgia State.

Breida suffered the leg injury in the first half and was taken to the locker room for treatment. He would later take to the exercise bike, but did not re-enter the contest. With the Eagles already locked into the GoDaddy Bowl, there was little reason for the team to risk their star's health. For the season, the 5-foot-10, 185-pound junior's rushed for 1,540 yards and 16 touchdowns while averaging in excess of eight yards a carry. Not too shabby.

Georgia Southern redshirt senior LB Antwione Williams accepted an invite to the East-West Shrine Game.

The 6-foot-2.5, 250-pounder has a 4.7s forty and has reportedly been drawing buzz in scouting circles. TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline believes Williams could be a middle-round pick. The East-West Shrine Game goes down in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Jan. 23rd.

Georgia Southern junior RB Matt Breida is converting 13.11% of his carries into 20-plus yard gains.

This is an insane figure. Breida is undersized and is in a rushing focused offensive attack (a reason for his low 37.54% market share), but Breida might be the top big play runner in the country. FSU's Dalvin Cook is the only top name close Breida in this category, converting a 20-plus yard gain on 10.24% of his runs.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline believes Georgia Southern redshirt senior LB Antwione Williams could be a middle-round pick.

Williams earned All-Sun Belt Conference Honorable Mention honors last season (65 tackles) but has taken his game to another level for the frisky Eagles. "There’s been a lot of recent chatter about the linebacker who measures 6-feet/2.5-inches, 250-pounds and times 4.7s in the forty," Pauline wrote. "Though more of a two down defender, he’ll be a solid fit on the inside of a 3-4 alignment come Sunday afternoon." Williams currently leads the squad with 67 tackles and seven TFL. He also has 2.5 sacks.

Georgia Southern junior RB Matt Breida rushed for 205 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries in Thursday's 37-13 win over Texas State.

Breida averaged a stellar 8.9 YPC in Thursday's victory. His first touchdown saw him bust through a pile at the line of scrimmage for a 37-yard scoring run several minutes into the first quarter. He would strike again early in the second quarter from 48 yards out. The 5-foot-10, 185-pound junior's now rushed for 1,158 yards with 13 touchdowns. He's gone over 135 yards rushing in six of eight contests. Even in his two least productive games, Breida still rushed for 70 and 78 yards against West Virginia and Appalachian State, respectively.

Georgia Southern junior RB Matt Breida rushed for 78 yards on 14 carries in the school's 31-13 loss to App State.

It was Breida's second lowest rushing total of the season, the first was in week one against West Virginia. Breida is a big play waiting to happen thanks to explosion and speed. He is averaging close to 10 yards per carry for the season. Georgia Southern faces Texas State next.

Georgia Southern starting redshirt junior QB Kevin Ellison will miss the opening two games of the season due to suspension.

Ellison will miss games against West Virginia and Western Michigan. Georgia Southern is a run oriented offense in the mold of Georgia Tech and Navy, but on top of his 1,096 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns last season, Ellison added 1,001 passing yards and five touchdowns.

Former FSU redshirt junior LB Ukeme Eligwe transferred to Georgia Southern.

Eligwe, who was dismissed from FSU in November for a rules violation, will apply for a waiver seeking immediate eligibility. If he gets it, he'd have two seasons of eligibility remaining beginning this fall. Eligwe, a former four-star recruit, picked Georgia Southern over Georgia.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline believes Georgia Southern CB Valdon Cooper "has the skills to make a roster at the next level as a dimeback/special teams player."

According to the analyst, Cooper was graded by scouts as a priority free agent before the season. Six NFL teams showed up to Georgia Southern's pro day, mostly to take in Cooper. The 5-foot-10 1/4, 184-pound corner logged a 35-inch vertical, a 10-0 broad jump and hoisted up 15 reps on the bench. He ran 4.51 forty with a 7.01 3-cone drill.

FSU redshirt sophomore LB Ukeme Eligwe has been dismissed from the team for a rules violation.

Head coach Jimbo Fisher did not specify which rule was violated. Eligwe missed the first four games of the season because of a Linsfranc injury he suffered during the spring. He played against Wake Forest on October 4, but has not taken the field in any other game this season.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline believes Georgia Southern senior CB Valdon Cooper is "a solid player with next level ball skills."

"The measurables for cornerback Valdon Cooper are below par but he’s a solid player with next level ball skills," Pauline wrote. At the moment, Pauline notes that "it would be a reach for Cooper to be a late round selection" but envisions him "as a dime back/special teams player in the NFL twelve months from now." The 5-foot-11, 185 pound Cooper heads into this season with 33 games of experience and 17 starts under his belt.
