Not sure how closely everyone has been following Butch, but Arkansas State has really turned things around this year. Their season started with a 73-0 loss to Oklahoma followed by a 37-3 loss to Memphis. Former Vol QB JT Shrout started these first two games but suffered an ankle injury during the Memphis loss. However, Butch ended up deciding to go with another QB going forward and Shrout hasn’t seen any action since Memphis. But the big news is that Arkansas State has turned their season around and blew out Texas State 77-31 yesterday. The Red Wolves are now 6-5 and will be going bowling for the first time under 3rd year head coach Butch Jones. Butch has improved their record each successive year, going 2-10 in 2021, 3-9 in 2022, and now 6-5 in 2023 with a big game against Marshall left to go. Marshall is currently 5-6 so they are going to be fighting for their own bowl spot against Butch and his Red Wolves.
