Western Michigan senior QB Zach Terrell completed 18-of-27 passes for 270 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 49-31 win over Georgia Southern.

Terrell didn't do much in the first quarter, but he started cooking with gas in the second quarter, throwing three of his four touchdowns before hitting the locker room at halftime. Eight of Terrell's nine touchdown passes this season have come in two games -- four on Saturday, of course, plus another four against North Carolina Central in Week 2. He has yet to thrown an interception during the 2016 campaign.

Western Michigan T Taylor Moton "blocks with terrific knee bend, power and intensity," writes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"He’s a dominant run blocker but lacks footwork and lateral range which is the reason many, including myself, rate him at guard versus the right tackle position he plays in college," Pauline wrote. "I would expect Moton to receive an invitation to the Shrine Game and possibly the Senior Bowl then go on and be a steal in the later (5th) rounds of the draft." Moton's Broncos are 3-0 after beating Illinois on Saturday.

Western Michigan redshirt sophomore RB Jamauri Bogan rushed for 189 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries in Saturday's 34-10 win over Illinois.

Bogan was the Broncos' most effective weapon on Saturday, averaging 7.8 YPC with a long run of 40 yards. He scored both of his touchdowns in the first quarter, punching it in from one yard out with 3:25 remaining in the quarter, then backing that up several minutes later courtesy of a 36-yard scoring run. The redshirt sophomore has increased his rushing totals in each of Western Michigan's three games this season, tallying 103 yards against Northwestern in the season-opener, 131 yards against North Carolina Central and Saturday's 189.
Sep 17 - 8:31 PM

Western Michigan redshirt sophomore RB Jamauri Bogan converted 22 carries into 103 yards and a score in Saturday's 22-21 victory over Northwestern.

Bogan was expected to split carries with fellow tailbacks Jarvion Franklin and LeVante Bellamy, but he's very clearly the Broncos' No. 1 back in rushing situations. Bogan burst onto the scene in the Bahamas Bowl against Middle Tennessee State with 215 yards and four touchdowns. He appears set to keep the good times rolling.
Sep 3 - 3:23 PM

Western Michigan senior WR Corey Davis caught seven passes for 70 yards in Saturday's 22-21 victory over Northwestern.

The Wildcats are very strong defensively, specifically in the secondary, and they clearly were resolute in their strategy to prevent Davis from beating them. While the potential-first rounder wasn't able to rip Northwestern deep, he still played efficiently. The attention he drew allowed his teammates to chip away yardage in what turned out to be a nail-biter. Pro Football Focus believes Davis is the best draft-eligible receiving prospect in the nation. This was arguably the hardest game on WMU's schedule. An undefeated regular season is in play.

Western Michigan freshman WR Bryson White and freshman LB Ron George have been indefinitely suspended after allegedly sticking up a woman at gunpoint and knifepoint.

White and George were arrested early on Saturday morning. Weapons and money were reportedly found in their vehicle. According to WMMT News 3's report, the pair "held up a woman [using] a semi-automatic weapon and a knife in an area off campus." HC P.J. Fleck has reacted in swift fashion, issuing indefinite suspensions to both players. In a statement, he said, "I'm extremely disappointed and want to assure the community that this kind of conduct is unacceptable and does not represent the values of this team or this university."

Western Michigan senior WR Corey Davis is the best draft-eligible receiving prospect in the nation, according to Pro Football Focus.

"Davis combines nifty route running with good body control and after-the-catch ability," Pro Football Focus' Steve Palazzolo wrote. "He projects as a strong intermediate threat, capable of separating on dig and comeback routes while sneaking behind the defense at times more due to his route running than his speed." Questions remain on Davis' evaluation, however. "Davis is not a blazer, so if he can show an uptick in speed his senior year, that will be a bonus," Palazzolo wrote. "While he has plenty of highlight-reel downfield catches on tape, making those contested catches more consistently while showing more strength at the top of his routes are two things that can improve his already-polished game."

Western Michigan senior WR Corey Davis "carries himself like a top-dog wideout who wants the ball and fights aggressively for it when it is in the air," writes NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein.

"Unlike his brother, Titus Davis, Corey isn't as sharp a route-runner, but he does have better long speed than his brother had, which should help his draft stock," Zierlein wrote. The 6-foot-3, 215-pounder is the active FBS leader with 3,785 career receiving yards.

Western Michigan senior WR Corey Davis blends "strong hands and surprising agility," according to NFL.com draft analyst Chad Reuter.

Reuter predicts that Davis will "likely be an early-round draft pick," just like former Broncos WR Greg Jennings, who went in the second round to the Packers in 2006. Davis has over 2,800 yards to go along with 27 touchdowns over the past two seasons.

Numerous coaches and teammates heaped praise on senior WR Corey Davis.

"You see elite talent" Iowa State head coach Matt Campbell, who faced Davis for a few years while at Toledo. Davis was a two-star non-recruit out of high school, and he has blossomed into one of, if not the best receiver in all of college football. "He’s a freak," WMU quarterback Zach Terrell said. Davis has added weight this offseason.

Western Michigan redshirt sophomore RB Jamauri Bogan and junior Jarvion Franklin were both named to the Doak Walker Award Watch List.

Bogan stole Franklin's starting job midway through last year and ended up leading the team with 1,051 yards and 16 touchdowns. He won MAC Freshman of the Year honors and was named Popeyes Bahamas Bowl Offensive MVP after torching Middle Tennessee State for 215 yards and four touchdowns. For his part, Franklin had 735 yards and five touchdowns.

Sports on Earth's Matt Brown says Western Michigan QB Zach Terrell is a top-25 national quarterback.

Terrell was named 2015 Third-Team All-MAC for finishing with 3,526 passing yards and a 29/9 TD/INT rate on 67 percent completions for an offense that ranked 11th in yards per play. Terrell ranked No. 7 in the FBS and No. 2 in the MAC in quarterback efficiency (162.3). A two-year starter under rising HC P.J. Fleck, Terrell directs a powerful attack that features potential All-American wide receiver Corey Davis.
Jul 9 - 1:29 PM

Western Michigan redshirt sophomore RB Jamauri Bogan will split carries with fellow tailbacks Jarvion Franklin and LeVante Bellamy once again this fall.

Bogan produced a team-best 1,051 yards and 16 scores last year, pushing the 2014 sensation Franklin into a backseat role down the stretch. This year, we'd assume Bogan will once again lead the squad in carries, while Franklin (153-735 in 2015) will get plenty of run as well. Bellamy (77-493), meanwhile, is more of an offensive weapon who also lines up out wide. The Broncos lost MAC tackle Willie Beavers and Daniel Braverman but return four starters on a good O-Line along with star quarterback Zach Terrell and WR Corey Davis (91-1,446). WMU is a major contender for the MAC title.

Western Michigan HC P.J. Fleck said that senior WR Corey Davis has added 10 pounds this offseason.

Davis was listed at 6-foot-3, 205 pounds for 2015. Said Fleck, "He’s quicker, more explosive. He has spent a ton of time just working on his craft, to get him better. He’s our best player but also our hardest worker." The coach called his star wideout "really the complete package." Last season, Davis notched 90 catches for 1,436 yards and 12 touchdowns. With Daniel Braverman heading to the Bears, Davis will be the focal point of Western Michigan's aerial attack in 2016.
Jun 1 - 1:45 PM

Bears selected Western Michigan WR Daniel Braverman with the No. 230 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

Braverman (5'10/175) was a rare small-school early entrant after a prolific junior campaign (108-1,367-13) in which he ranked second in the nation in receptions. Per College Football Focus, Braverman's 2015 catch rate (76 percent) was the highest among draft-eligible receivers. Braverman's athletic limitations showed up at the WMU Pro Day, running 4.53 with an anemic 28 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-4 broad jump. Due to his short-area playing style, Braverman has drawn comparisons ranging from Julian Edelman to Cole Beasley.
