  Atwell returns with high expectations again this fall, and the Hilltoppers know they'll need to do a better job of limiting his production in Saturday's season opener if they want to snap an 11-game losing streak to Louisville. "We kind of have some different coverages - I can't go into specifics - but we have different things that we're going to do to contain him and make them use other players to have to beat us," WKU redshirt sophomore defensive back Beanie Bishop said Wednesday. The 5-foot-9, 165-pound receiver out of Miami Northwestern Senior High School set Louisville's record for receiving yards in 2019 and tied the school record for touchdowns. Atwell's 1,276 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns were top marks in the ACC last season.

Atwell, who averaged 18.75 yards per reception last season, had his big-play ability on display last year at Nissan Stadium. Atwell had a 46-yard touchdown reception from Micale Cunningham early in the second quarter and a 62-yard reception from Evan Conley late in the third. He also had a 9-yard score in the first quarter, a 4-yard reception in the second-quarter scoring drive and a 24-yard reception in the fourth quarter. "He's definitely an electric football player. He did the same thing in the ACC throughout the year," WKU defensive coordinator Clayton White said Wednesday. "I think the most important thing is just to be aware, play smart, understand his strengths and make sure we use our strengths to our advantage as well, and just do a great job of understanding where he's located on the offense and the things he likes to do." - BG Daily News
