Medlock sits out
Redshirt junior quarterback Jake Medlock didn’t practice again Thursday after sustaining a concussion last Saturday against Bethune-Cookman.
Coach Ron Turner said Medlock still wasn’t ruled out for Saturday’s game at No. 7 Louisville, but he would be available only as an emergency backup if at all.
Sophomore quarterback E.J. Hilliard will start.
Redshirt sophomore tight end Akil Dan-Fodio, who last played quarterback in high school, likely will be Hilliard’s backup instead of freshman Travis Wright, who went to Louisville Trinity High.
Turner said the NCAA threw up a red flag on Wright’s standardized test scores as being out of line with his grade-point average, but that Wright’s GPA fell during a time of personal and family problems in the middle of high school.
