Western Michigan head coach P.J. Fleck and Oregon "are expected to talk soon," according to 247 Sports' Travis Haney.

Western Michigan is set up to play in a New Year's Day bowl game after an undefeated season. It seems like Fleck is the favorite for the job, or at least at the top of Oregon's list. "One telling sign was a source telling us that Fleck was out of the Purdue search, which we've been told has included at least a dozen interviews," Haney writes.

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.
Dec 2 - 11:29 PM

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.

Football Scoop reports that Western Michigan HC P.J. Fleck and his representatives have told interested programs that they won’t talk until after the MAC title game.

That game, against Ohio, takes place on Friday night. Fleck is a leading contender for the Purdue job, and he's also reportedly very high on Oregon's list if the Ducks decide to fire Mark Helfrich, as expected.
Nov 28 - 2:06 PM

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.
Nov 25 - 9:06 PM

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.
Nov 25 - 8:53 PM

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.
Nov 19 - 7:02 PM

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.

Western Michigan OL Taylor Moton has been invited to the Senior Bowl.

Moton is listed as a guard on the Senior Bowl's website, but we expect the right tackle to see practice snaps both inside and outside. Moton has drawn the praise of a few draft writers, and he will face difficult matchups during the week of practice in Mobile, AL.

Nov 16 - 10:29 AM

Western Michigan junior RB Jarvion Franklin rushed for 134 yards and a touchdown on 31 carries in Tuesday's win over Kent State.

Franklin racked up his yards more on perseverance than explosiveness, as he averaged 4.3 YPC with a long run of 19 yards. After failing to crack 95 yards rushing in any of WMU's first four games, Franklin has now crashed the century mark in six consecutive contests. He has scored in six straight, too. Overall, Franklin has rushed for 1,152 yards (5.6 YPC) and 10 touchdowns through 10 games.
Nov 9 - 4:00 PM

Western Michigan senior WR Corey Davis caught one pass for 18 yards in the school's 37-21 win over Kent State on Tuesday.

The Broncos only attempted 13 passes, completing six of them, in Tuesday's win. Simply put, the passing game was not needed, as Western Michigan ran the ball 64 times. for 329 yards and four touchdowns. This is obviously Davis' season low in both categories. He's been one of the nation's most productive receivers in each of the last three seasons. Just one game ago he caught 12 passes for 272 yards and three touchdowns.
Nov 9 - 10:30 AM

Western Michigan junior RB Jarvion Franklin rushed for 109 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries in Tuesday's win against Ball State.

After starting out the year behind Jamauri Bogan, Franklin has re-taken over his former starting role with aplomb. He's now gone over 100 yards while also reaching paydirt in five straight. The Broncos play next Tuesday against Kent State.
Nov 3 - 5:12 PM

Western Michigan senior WR Michael Henry logged seven catches for 67 yards on Tuesday versus Ball State.

A worthy second banana to stud muffin Corey Davis, Henry is up to a 47-523-3 line. He's a move-the-chains, possession-type.
