Bowling Green got a school-record rushing performance from Jamale Carothers and rallied to beat host Owensboro 42-34 last week for its 48th consecutive victory, the second-longest winning streak in state history.
But the Purples weren’t in a mood to celebrate because they lost one of their top players to a season-ending injury. Cameron Wallace, a 6-foot-7 senior tight end and son of Coach Kevin Wallace, suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the second half at Owensboro. He will have knee surgery in Nashville on Oct. 3.
