Just 10 days away from a Thursday Night Football matchup in Commonwealth Stadium, Auburn has lost their best player. Jay Tate of Rivals reports that WR Duke Williams was dismissed from the team today after an “off-the-field incident at a local nightclub” over the weekend.
Many thought the JUCO transfer would leave for the NFL after a stellar junior season, but “off-the-field incidents” started becoming a problem before last season ended, serving a suspension during the Outback Bowl.
The size of Auburn’s star receiver would have been a very difficult matchup for Kentucky. Now it seems as though the stars are aligning for a second-consecutive 5-1 start.
