BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -- Antonio Andrews is proving again to be the nation's most versatile running back, racking up yards in a Western Kentucky offense needing his multiple contributions.

The Hilltoppers senior is on track to lead the NCAA in all-purpose yards. He has 1,610 yards entering Saturday's game against Troy.

Andrews also has a chance to top last year's 13-game total of 3,161 that fell 88 shy of Barry Sanders' record set during his 1988 Heisman Trophy season.

WKU (4-3, 1-2 Sun Belt Conference) will need Andrews' many skills against Troy (4-3, 2-1), especially his burly rushing style. The Trojans' run defense ranks second in the league with a per-game average of 141 yards allowed.

With turnovers plaguing the Hilltoppers' offense, Andrews' running becomes even more important in their quest to establish consistency.
