No QB duel at ASU-FAU game

We were supposed to get Rusty Smith vs. Corey Leonard in a battle of the Sun Belt Conference's pre-season co-offensive Players of the Year this week when FAU plays host to Arkansas State.

Instead, it looks like it will be Jeff Van Camp vs. Ryan Aplin.

After Smith sprained his shoulder last week to open the door for the Jeff Van Camp last week, Leonard was benched in favor of Aplin, a redshirt freshman.

Although ASU coach Steve Roberts wouldn't reveal his plan and is guarding who will start this week as if it is a state secret, I'd be shocked if Aplin isn't under center at the start of the game Saturday.

Busy news day: Western Kentucky fired David Elson on Monday, an odd move considering the Hilltoppers were still navigating the waters of moving to the FBS (I-A) level.

Not sure what the WKU administration was thinking, but struggling in your first year as a I-A team should have been expected and really nothing to be ashamed about.
