Though he was the preseason incumbent at running back, West missed the first five games of the season after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery.
The Alabama native responded by becoming the fourth Blue Raider running back to go over 100 yards on the season in the 41-10 victory over Old Dominion.
West carried the ball 26 times for 170 yards (6.5 yards per carry) and two touchdowns, including a 36-yard scamper in the fourth quarter to increase Middle’s lead to 35.
Through the air, the redshirt sophomore added three catches for 25 yards to give him a 195 all-purpose yards.
In six games this season, West has 47 carries for 243 yards and three touchdowns to go along with eight receptions for 43 yards.
