Western Michigan WR Corey Davis declined an invitation to attend the Senior Bowl.

We have waited to see Davis at this event for over a year, so this is a bummer. Davis dominated during his time at WMU, ending his final season 98 passes for 1,511 yards and 19 touchdowns. Davis shines after the catch, picking up chunks of yards at a high rate. He also displayed an ability to go up and get it. We will have to wait to see Davis until the NFL Combine.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Western Michigan has hired Indiana coordinator Kevin Johns to serve as offensive coordinator.

Football Scoop was first on this one. Johns has been a versatile piece of Indiana coaching staff over the past six seasons and has worked as a coordinator, a quarterbacks coach and a wide receivers coach. Prior to that stint with the Hoosiers, he had spent seven years on the Northwestern sideline. Western Michigan has yet to name a defensive coordinator, but that figures to happen in relatively short order.

Western Michigan QB Zach Terrell accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

The 6-foot-2, 204-pounder threw for 3,544 yards with a sensational 33/4 TD/INT ratio on P.J. Fleck's last Western Michigan team. Terrell is smallish and doesn't have great arm strength. What he's got is intangibles and smarts, which may get him sneaked into Day 3. "He is one of the smartest players I've ever been around, one of the hardest workers I've ever been around, one of the best anticipators I've ever been around," Fleck said in November.

Western Michigan hired Purdue quarterbacks coach Tim Lester for their open head-coaching position.

Lester replaces P.J. Fleck, who rowed his boat over to Minnesota last week. His only previous experience as a head coach has come at the lower levels of play, as he served as head coach of Division III Elmhurst from 2008-2012. He subsequently joined Syracuse's coaching staff, where he acted as quarterbacks coach and recruiting coordinator for two seasons. He was hired by Purdue a year ago December. Now, onward to Western Michigan. This move is a homecoming of sorts. Lester played quarterback for the Broncos from 1996-1999. In that space, Lester threw for 11,299 yards and 87 touchdowns.

Rutgers sophomore LB Na’jee Clayton transferred to Western Michigan.

Clayton left the Scarlet Knights in September for personal reasons. The three-star 2015 recruit must sit out the 2017 season. He'll have two seasons of eligibility remaining with which to row the boat beginning in 2018.

Western Michigan senior QB Zach Terrell completed 16-of-28 passes for 157 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Monday's 24-16 loss to Wisconsin in the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic.

Terrell posted his worst game of the season on Monday, with only a late scoring toss to Corey Davis preventing him from being goose-egged in the touchdown column. The 6-foot-2, 204-pounder started all 14 of Western Michigan's games this season and wraps having thrown for 3,544 yards with a 33/4 TD/INT ratio.
Jan 2 - 4:30 PM

Western Michigan senior WR Corey Davis caught six passes for 73 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 24-16 loss to Wisconsin in the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic.

This wasn't one of Davis' best pure statistical games -- Wisconsin did a nice job limiting him on the whole -- but he did haul in one heck of a touchdown in the fourth quarter. On that one, QB Zach Terrell was chased out of the pocket, backpedaled and simply lofted the ball to the back right corner of the end zone. It stayed up for a considerable amount of time and Davis was forced to wrestle through coverage to come back to the ball to hang on for the score. Western Michigan's subsequent onside kick attempt proved unsuccessful, essentially ending the game. The 6-foot-3, 215-pounder wraps the current campaign having caught 98 passes for 1,511 yards and 19 touchdowns over the course of 14 games played. He has the pro-ready game to earn a first-round selection in this spring's draft. A trip to the Senior Bowl awaits.

Western Michigan redshirt sophomore RB Jamauri Bogan rushed for 78 yards on 26 carries in Friday's 29-23 win over Ohio in the MAC Championship Game.

Bogan was largely kept under wraps in this one, averaging just 3.0 YPC with a long run of nine yards. Backfield buddy Jarvion Franklin proved equally ineffective with his 34 yards rushing. In 10 relatively healthy games this season, Bogan has now rushed for 865 yards and eight touchdowns. He has missed three contests due to injury.

Western Michigan senior QB Zach Terrell completed 20-of-32 passes for 301 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Friday's 29-23 win over Ohio in the MAC Championship Game.

This wasn't Terrell's flashiest game of the season, but he got the job done. His first touchdown pass went to (who else) Corey Davis for 70 yards midway through the second quarter and he would come back around to hit Carrington Thompson for an eight-yard score in the closing seconds before halftime. Through 13 games, the 6-foot-2, 204-pound senior has now thrown for 3,387 yards with a sparkling 32/3 TD/INT ratio. Terrell has failed to throw for at least two touchdowns in just three contests this season.

Western Michigan senior WR Corey Davis caught nine passes for 155 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 29-23 win over Ohio in the MAC Championship Game.

Davis came up clutch for the Broncos in the MAC title game. His touchdown grab was a thing of beauty, as the 6-foot-3, 215-pound senior ran a deep in and was hit perfectly in stride by QB Zach Terrell. The rest of the work was all Davis, who cut across the field and down the left sideline while racing to the end zone for the impressive 70-yard touchdown midway through the second quarter. This was the wideout's fifth 100-yard game in 13 contests. Overall, he has caught 92 passes for 1,438 yards and 18 touchdowns. Having rowed the boat to an undefeated shore, the 13-0 Broncos will now await their bowl assignment.

An AFC North scout says Western Michigan senior WR Corey Davis is "a man among boys" in the MAC.

"It wasn't even fair the way he did those corners in that conference," he said. "Like a man among boys. Should see just how real he is at the Senior Bowl." The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Davis broke the FBS' all-time receiving yardage record on Friday against Toledo. Davis boasts a 83-1,284-17 receiving line heading into Friday's MAC Championship Game against Ohio.

Western Michigan redshirt sophomore RB Jamauri Bogan rushed for 198 yards and a touchdown on 31 carries in Friday's 55-35 win over Toledo.

For those of you who enjoy weirdo statistics, Bogan finished with the same yardage total on the ground as quarterback Zach Terrell managed through the air. Fun for all. Following a reasonably close first half in which Western Michigan hit the locker room holding a 24-14 advantage, the Broncos proceeded to salt the game away in the second half. Terrell would hit all-universe wideout Corey Davis for a short touchdown pass with 9:02 remaining in the third quarter and Bogan followed that up with a 27-yard touchdown scamper to stretch the lead to 38-14. Toledo would gamely make a few minor charges before the end of the game, but the contest was never seriously in doubt after halftime. This showing was particularly impressive by Bogan given that he had missed each of Western Michigan's last two games due to an undisclosed injury.

Western Michigan senior WR Corey Davis became the FBS' all-time receiving yardage leader with his eight catches for 82 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 55-35 win over Toledo.

Davis topped the FBS record for career receiving yardage via a seven-yard catch in the second quarter. That grab moved him up to 5,006 yards, one yard better than previous record-holder Trevor Insley (Nevada). Insley had initially set the FBS mark with his work from 1996-1999. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Davis will carry an 83-1284-17 receiving line into next Friday's MAC Championship Game against Ohio.

Western Michigan senior WR Corey Davis caught 13 passes for 173 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 38-0 win over Buffalo.

Pop that tape in, scouts. A star-caliber prospect, Davis continues to make a compelling case that he deserves a slot in the first round of this spring's draft (an NFL scout told MMQB earlier this season that Davis may have been a first-rounder had he declared for the 2015 Draft). Davis is the new MAC career record for career receiving touchdowns with 49.

Western Michigan senior QB Zach Terrell completed 29-for-37 for 445 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 38-0 win over Buffalo.

Terrell rowed the boat about as well as it can be rowed this afternoon. In a College Gameday Saturday in Kalamazoo, Terrell shined, even in the chill, posting his third 4/0 TD/INT game of the season. Terrell broke the school's previous career-passing yards record (Tim Hiller, 11,329) during the game.
