It took just one play against West Virginia to knock out senior linebacker Pat St. Louis.
So now, for the next two weeks, the Bulls will be practicing without one of their most seasoned players. St. Louis, who also tweaked his right hamstring against Louisville on Nov. 18, sat out of practice Monday – the team’s first since accepting the invitation to the Papajohns.com Bowl.

“We really don’t expect to get him back to practice the week we head up Birmingham.”

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
