#5 Syheam McQueen

We now know that Western will play both Liberty and Eastern Kentucky in November. Since Gardner-Webb has decided not to play in the fall, we are not sure if we will have a third game, but we will post it if one is announced.

We will continue our countdown as if the season were to start on September 3rd.

Today, we'll highlight a running back:
