  2019 OVC OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR (COACHES): Chris Rowland (WR/RS), Tennessee State,...Despite being limited in one and a half games in November due to injury, Rowland ranked first nationally in total receiving yards (1,437) and receiving yards/game (119.8), second in all-purpose yards (175.83 yards/game), third in receptions/game (8.7) and 22nd in kickoff returns (25.0 yards/return). Rowland missed the second half of the Eastern Illinois game on November 9 and was unable to play wide receiver in the following game against UT Martin, although he did perform his normal role and hold on field goal attempts. Had he not participated in that game (where he did not play offense and recorded zero all-purpose yards) he would have led the FCS in receptions/game.

Named first-team All-OVC as both a wide receiver and return specialist, Rowland became just the second player in OVC history to catch 100 passes in a season (joining Eastern Illinois All-American Erik Lora who accomplished the feat in 2012 and 2013). As a return specialist he is one of just two FCS players to return both a kick return and a punt return for a touchdown this season. His kickoff return score went for 96 yards against Jackson State in the Southern Heritage Classic in Memphis while his punt return score came in the first half against Eastern Illinois, as it went for 57 yards. Rowland was the only Division I player (FBS or FCS) to score a touchdown via kick return, punt return, reception and rushing in 2019. He had six games with 200-plus all-purpose yards during the season, including a season-high 267 against Jackson State. - Ohio Valley Football

  Chris Rowland had 148 receiving yards and a touchdown on 12 receptions and Tennessee State rallied to shock Tennessee Tech 37-27 on Saturday. Tennessee State (3-9, 2-6 Ohio Valley Conference) overcame first-half deficits of 20-0 and 27-10 and used the final quarters to stage the comeback. Down 17 at the half, Te'kendrick Roberson ran it in from 14 yards to complete an 11-play, 81-yard drive to start the third quarter. The two-point conversion failed. Later, Rowland threw a 32-yard touchdown pass to Cameron Rosendahl and reduced the deficit to 27-23. More than midway through the fourth, DeMarco Corbin made it 30-27 after his 3-yard TD run. On the Golden Eagles' next drive, Seth Rowland got free and blocked Luke Maynard's punt that Jordan Bell recovered in the end zone with 4:44 left. The Tigers entered with three straight defeats and had been beaten in nine of their last 10 games. It's the second straight year the Tigers have beaten Tennessee Tech (6-6, 3-5). Tennessee State ended the season with consecutive defeats. - AP College Football
