FORT WORTH -- TCU has named football running back Ed Wesley and volleyball outside hitter Jordan Raines as the Athletes of the Week.
Wesley led the Horned Frogs’ rushing attack in their 40-33 loss to SMU. It was Wesley’s first game back from injury. He rushed the ball for 93 yards on 11 carries, including a long of 63 yards in the second quarter to set up a two-yard touchdown.
Wesley and TCU look to bounce back when they travel to San Diego State this weekend. Kickoff is set for 9:30 p.m., central daylight time on the CBS Sports Network.
Raines had a career day in the Frogs’ conference win at Boise State. She had a career high 21 kills and a .419 hitting percentage. The Coppell, Texas, native added 15 digs in the match to complete the double double.
The 21 kills against Boise State represented the first 20-kill match of Raines’ career. Her four blocks against Boise were also a career high. Raines had 12 kills and eight digs in the Frogs sweep of Air Force.
