  OCT 19 SUN BELT OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Jonathan Adams, Arkansas State,...Senior wide receiver Jonathan Adams Jr. tied the Arkansas State school record for receptions in a game with 15 catches for a career-high 177 yards and two touchdowns during the Red Wolves' 59-52 win over Georgia State. Adams' 15 receptions not only matched former wideout J.D. McKissic's school-record total against Missouri in 2013, they tied the most in the nation this season and tied the second most in Sun Belt Conference history. His 177 receiving yards were the 13th most by an FBS player this year as well, while the game also marked the third time this season Adams has posted multiple touchdown receptions. The Jonesboro, Ark., native is currently ranked second in the nation in touchdown catches (7), seventh in receptions per game (8.2) and 11th in average receiving yards (107.8 ypg). - Sun Belt Football

  Arkansas State had a Sun Belt Conference record-tying eight touchdown passes against Georgia State. That's the national season high and most since Washington State threw for nine scores in a loss to UCLA in September 2019. Arkansas State starter Logan Bonner threw for three TDs, Layne Hatcher for four and wide receiver Roshauud Paul for one. The Red Wolves have 14 TD passes and no interceptions in their last two games. - AP College Football

  Jonathan Adams Jr. stood behind the podium with a smirk on his face. His Arkansas State University teammate and fellow senior wide receiver Dahu Green sat across the way, a grin on his face, too. After a 59-52 victory Thursday night over Georgia State and a performance in which the pair combined for 24 receptions, 349 yards and 4 touchdowns, Adams was asked whether he thought they were one of the best 1-2 wide receiver punches in college football. "Facts," Adams said simply. "I think we're the best wideouts just because our size, our ability to move, high point the ball, go run and get the ball -- just everything. I think we're the best in college football."

Both Adams and Green had career highs in catches and yards against Georgia State. They also caught two touchdown passes apiece for the second consecutive game. Green had 9 receptions for 172 yards, while Adams caught 15 for 177. Those 15 receptions tied now-NFL running back J.D. McKissic's school record for receptions in a single game in 2013 against Missouri. But this isn't the first time the two have showcased their dynamic playmaking ability this season. In fact, Adams' claim that they're the "best in college football" isn't so far-fetched, according to the statistics. Arkansas State is currently the only school in the country to have two wide receivers in the top 10 in receiving yards this season, with Adams ranking first at 539 yards and Green eighth at 419. - Northwest Arkansas Times

  Records were made to be broken. Arkansas State set two single-game passing records on Thursday night in front of a national TV audience, passing for a school-record 551 yards and firing eight touchdown passes en route to a thrilling 59-52 victory over Georgia State. The Red Wolves (3-2, 1-1 Sun Belt Conference) and Panthers (1-2, 0-2) battled back-and-forth offensively all night, combining for 1,192 yards – 865 through the air – and 59 first downs. The two teams also combined for 14 touchdowns and 172 total plays (Arkansas State 96, Georgia State 76). The teams traded scores for seemingly the entire night, accounting for seven ties and 10 lead changes, as neither team held more than a touchdown lead in the contest.

Jonathan Adams, Jr. grabbed a career-high 15 catches, tying J.D. McKissic's single-game record, to go along with a career-high 177 yards. Dahu Green was equally potent with nine catches for 172 yards. The duo accounted for four of A-State's eight touchdowns. Brandon Bowling also caught six passes for 91 yards and a touchdown. Five different Red Wolves caught touchdown passes on the night, including Lincoln Pare's two scores and one from Reed Tyler. A-State's quarterback tandem of Logan Bonner (18-28, 197 yards, 3 TD) and Layne Hatcher (21 of 28, 332 yards, 4 TD) had a tremendous night passing, completing 39 of 56 passes for 529 yards and seven touchdowns to no interceptions. - Arkansas State Football

  OCT 12 SUN BELT DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Justin Rice, Arkansas State,...Senior linebacker Justin Rice posted a season-high 12 tackles while also finishing Arkansas State's 50-27 victory over Central Arkansas with career-best totals for both tackles for loss (4.0) and sacks (3.0). Not only were Rice's 3.0 sacks the most by a Sun Belt Conference player this season, they tied the seventh most in A-State history for a single game. His 3.0 tackles for loss were also the most by a Sun Belt player this year. The Modesto, Calif, native has now posted at least 2.5 tackles for loss in each of A-State's last three games and his 9.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage for the entire year lead the Sun Belt. With his 3.0 sacks against the Bears, he also ran his season total to a Sun Belt-high 4.0 on the year. - Sun Belt Football

He had two punts travel at least 50 yards, including one covering 69 yards that was the longest to date by a Sun Belt player. The Taylor, Texas, native put A-State in position for its first points of the game with a 64-yard punt that pinned UCA on its own two-yard line, setting up an A-State safety. His other two punts inside the 20-yard line were downed on the UCA 2 and 9 yard lines. - Sun Belt Football

  Jonathan Adams Jr. caught three touchdown passes, including the game-winner with 38 seconds remaining, and Arkansas State defeated Kansas State 35-31 on Saturday. Layne Hatcher threw a 17-yard pass to Adams for the winning score after the Wildcats (0-1) had taken a 31-28 lead on a Blake Lynch 35-yard field goal with 2:30 remaining. Arkansas State (1-1) faked a punt that led to a pass interference call, keeping a drive alive and leading to a 5-yard TD pass to Adams from Logan Bonner for a 28-21 lead with just under 12 minutes left in the fourth quarter.

Kansas State responded with Harry Trotter's 5-yard touchdown run before Lynch's go-ahead field goal. Kansas State scored on its first possession on a 17-yard catch by Phillip Brooks following a blocked punt. The Wildcats scored on consecutive drives in the second quarter to take a 21-7 lead. Adams got the Red Wolves' first TD on a 2-yard pass from Bonner. Wide receiver Jeff Foreman threw a 48-yard scoring pass to Roshauud Paul midway through the second quarter and the Red Wolves trailed 21-14 at halftime. Arkansas State held the Wildcats to 91 yards rushing. - Arkansas State/AP College Football

  09/03/20 - Logan BonnerrJr/2022, Arkansas State, 6-1, 220 (DS#31 QB) + More +

  Junior quarterback Logan Bonner will take the first snap Saturday in Arkansas State University's season-opening matchup with Memphis, Coach Blake Anderson announced Monday. But sophomore Layne Hatcher also will see the field, Anderson said, after he started the final nine games for ASU last season when Bonner suffered a season-ending injury. Bonner and Hatcher have been battling all fall, with Anderson saying it was Bonner's job to lose. Although Bonner is the official starter, Anderson indicated that doesn't mean Hatcher won't play more in the game or start the next week.

"Logan Bonner was the starter going into fall camp and he still is. He did nothing to lose that job," Anderson said. "But we are going to play Layne Hatcher some as well. How many snaps it is, where that happens - not absolutely certain. That's still a day-to-day conversation. "So Logan Bonner is going to go out with the first [team offense] and then somewhere during the course of the game you're going to see Layne Hatcher play." Bonner started the first four games last season before hurting his throwing hand. He threw for 1,052 yards and 10 touchdowns with 1 interception. - Northwest Arkansas Times
