Kenney to Start; Owens on Scout Team

Cameron Kenney to star again at WR: Junior-college transfer Cameron Kenney will make his second consecutive start at wide receiver this weekend against Tulsa, receivers coach Jay Norvell confirmed. Kenney also started last weekend in place of Adron Tennell, and had a 15-yard catch on a slant route. But another reason why Kenney is getting the nod is because of how he blocked in the run game against Idaho State. "I enjoy blocking. It helps out the run and then opens up the pass game," Kenney said. "By the time you're ready to run a route, the defender is concerned with just being blocked. So I think blocking is probably my strongest attribute right now." (The Oklahoman)
