Racers quarterback Casey Brockman had an outstanding night, going 38 of 43 for 455 yards and five touchdowns. Brockman hit receiver Walter Powell nine times for 172 yards and two touchdowns, and Receiver Dontel Watkins six times for 72 yards and two touchdowns.

Running back Duane Brady also had a touchdown Saturday night, and host of Racers got playing time.

By far the biggest story in Clarksville on Saturday was the suspension of starting Senior runningback Wesley Kitts for violation of team policy.

In Kitts place was freshman running back Reco Williams, getting his first start for the Govs and leading the Govs in rushing with 21 carries for 110 yards and a touchdown.

Govs’ quarterback Jake Ryan had an average night, throwing for 25 completions for 40 attempts, 241 yards and a touchdown in front of his home crowd.

Junior running back Terrence Oliver is still struggling to be consistent in the run offense, but he is on pace to have his best season returning kicks.

The Govs will look to record their first victory on the season when they travel to Eastern Kentucky next Saturday, Oct. 13.
