Other FAU players of note:
Wallace: The 6-1, 210-pound senior rushed for 117 yards on 17 carries against UAB, and now averages 5.1 yards per carry.
William Dukes: The junior isn't the team's leading receiver, but he's the most dangerous. He has 20 catches for 267 yards and four touchdowns, including a 58-yarder against Rice. At 6-4, 190, he's tall and physical.
D'Joun Smith: This junior cornerback has three interceptions, including the one he returned 75 yards for a touchdown against South Florida. One guess: the Herd's Rakeem Cato will throw at the other cornerback, as Keith Reaser is out for the season.
Defensive line: Led by senior right end Cory Henry and sophomore right tackle Brandin Bryant (nine sacks combined), they are the smallest FBS front the Herd has faced. But there's a method there.
"They're really playing four defensive ends," said Bill Legg, MU's offensive coordinator. "They're an aggressive, attacking group up front and to match that, they play a number of variations of man coverage."
Cre'von LeBlanc: This sophomore has played as a nickel and dime back, and he and senior Christian Milstead will be part of the solution in replacing Reaser.
