The last time we checked in on Jeff Wilson we were cautiously optimistic about his chances of reaching 1500 yards. He had himself a game against Southern Miss last week that boosted his numbers and his average. While we have the bye week to take stock of things, we can take another peek at things…. Read more »
This includes Jeff Wilson’s escape from the end zone that we mentioned on the podcast, and the 97-yard drive. So epic.
