Senior offensive lineman Kale Butler, senior cornerback Jihad Morris, senior punter Jeremy Moore and sophomore running back Bobby Rainey will serve as Western’s captains in Saturday’s game against Florida International.
Butler hasn’t seen action for the Toppers yet this season, while Morris, who has 24 tackles, will serve as a captain for the third straight game. Moore’s 44.7 yards per kick lead the Sun Belt Conference and are 12th-best in the nation. Rainey is averaging 147.2 all-purpose yards per game, by far the best on the team (senior quarterback Brandon Smith is second with 54 yards per game).
The game is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. at Houchens-Smith Stadium and will be Western’s first-ever Sun Belt Conference game.
