Middle Tennessee offensive lineman Chandler Brewer and wide receiver Ty Lee were named to Pro Football Focus’ Conference USA team of the week for their week five performances against Florida Atlantic.
After missing MTSU’s game against Bowling Green due to an injury, Brewer fought through the pain against Florida Atlantic to help the Middle Tennessee offense pick up 454 total yards for their second highest total of the year.
Lee continued to lead the injury-riddled Blue Raider offense against the Owls by leading the team in receptions (8) and recieving yards (136), including a 26-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter. Lee also added 18 yards on the ground on three carries, while also being responsible for the punt returning duties.
