Who’s Hot  

WR Jonathan Adams, Arkansas State  

The abbreviated September slate is providing a bigger spotlight to the Sun Belt Conference… and the league is capitalizing on it. The Red Wolves went into Manhattan and shocked Kansas State, 35-31, for just their second-ever win over a Power 5 opponent. Adams led the way with three TD catches, including a spectacular one-handed grab and the game-winner with 38 seconds left.

QB Micale Cunningham, Louisville

Cunningham has picked up where he left off in 2019. And that’s going to make for some exciting times this fall in Louisville. There are still some kinks and a little rust, but the junior still accounted for 367 total yards and four scores in Saturday’s 35-21 win over a dangerous Western Kentucky squad. Cunningham’s 70-yard scoring strike to Dez Fitzpatrick put the game out of reach in the third quarter.

QB Sam Ehlinger, Texas 

UTEP was on the other side of the ball, so no one should get too carried away after one weekend. But the Longhorn passing game was potent in Saturday’s 59-3 rout, despite using a slew of new and young receivers. Chemistry was no problem for Ehlinger, who completed 25-of-33 for 426 yards and five touchdown passes to five different teammates.
