WKU RB Antonio Andrews lights up Tennessee


Western Kentucky linebacker Andrew Jackson talks the talk, but on Saturday, it was WKU running back Antonio Andrews who walked the walk.

Things we learned


From Aaron Murray finally winning a big game to a statement win for "The U," here are the things we learned from the second weekend of college football play. **More ...**

Andrews blistered the Tennessee defense for 111 yards on 13 carries, an average of 8.5 yards per carry, at Neyland Stadium. He also had a 43-yard reception, 53 yards in kickoff returns, and went a long way toward solidifying his standing in the minds of NFL scouts with a stout performance against an SEC school.

Yes, he had a fumble that was part of the Hilltoppers incredible stretch of five turnovers in six offensive snaps, but the skills he showed in amassing 207 all-purpose yards against the Volunteers will give him the game film he needs scouts and NFL brass to see most.

Clearly, the rest of the Western Kentucky schedule doesn't provide the same level of competition.

At 6-foot-0 and 220 pounds, he has NFL size and is a draft sleeper if there ever was one.
