News: With Ben Cunningham and D.D. Kyles limited due to injury, William Pratcher has stepped up for Middle Tennessee and put it another good effort this weekend with 22 carries for 125 yards and a score.
Analysis: Pratcher is a speedy runner who is built thick enough to take 20 carries, so it will be interesting to see how much the team uses him from this point on.
News: Middle Tennessee running back Ben Cunningham did not play against Western Kentucky as he is dealing with an injured foot but in his stead the Blue Raiders nearly had two 100-yard backs. William Pratcher rushed for 106 yards while D.D. Kyles went for 96 yards and a score.
Analysis: The nature of the offense is to get the ball into as many playmaker's hands as possible so it is best to shy away from anyone not named Logan Kilgore.
