McGough A-Go-Go for Saturday & Other Returns

After practice, FIU coach Ron Turner confirmed the sighting I posted earlier: sophomore quarterback Alex McGough handled the first team reps throughout practice Tuesday and should start Saturday in the home opener against North Carolina-Central.

"By the time we landed (from Bloomington), he was back to the normal Alex," Turner said. "He had a little headache. He went through the concussion protocol, concussion impact and everything was normal."

Returning to the lineup after two games of academic ineligibility will be safety Jordan Davis, adding length, physicality and experience to that position. The last two assets can't be understated. Indiana plowed the row against FIU, North Carolina-Central likes to run the ball and FIU's lack of experience at safety has been exploited each of the first two games.

By the way, last man on the Juggs machine after practice? Junior safety Wilkenson Myrtil.
