College football: Eastern Washington wide receiver Cooper Kupp was named the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision co-Freshman of the Week for his effort in the Eagles’ win Saturday at Montana.
Kupp, a redshirt freshman from Yakima, had 11 catches for 182 yards and two touchdowns in a 42-37 win over the Grizzlies, which he preserved by recovering an onside kick with 1:41 left in the game.
Kupp has 11 touchdown catches to rank third in FCS. He also is a candidate for the Jerry Rice Award, which is given annually to the top freshman in the FCS.
Four Eagles injured: Eastern Washington’s win at Montana came at a price, especially in the defensive backfield.
Starting safety and team captain Allen Brown is listed as probable with a hamstring injury, while Todd Raynes – the top backup at both safety positions – is out with the same injury for Saturday’s game at Idaho State, the school announced Monday.
The next players on the depth chart at safety are Zach Bruce, a redshirt freshman from University High School,and Isaiah Jenkins, a redshirt junior from Seattle.
