    Kevin Sheppard also had several key defensive stops on that last series when it looked like MTSU might actually sniff the endzone. He looks like he'll be a good player for the Tigers.

    Teams are allowed to use the same number (#11 in this case) for two different players as long as one is on offense and the other on defense.

    The number is shared by Sheppard. Which ponders the question. How many 'same' numbers can be used? Is there a specific amount, or is it just that they can't be on the playing field at the same time? :confused:

    My brother-n-law and I were talking about that when he was holding the extra point kick too.

    I thought RP was holding for PAT's since Flynn was out. Usually it's a QB.

    You can have as many duplicate numbers you want, but only one can be on the field for a given play.

    I don't know the specific rule but Chris Fowler did a whole 30 second monologue on Nebraska's #5 runningback Lucky......."Lucky is #5 and all the great #5's throughout the history of football and how Lucky changed his number to # 5" blah blah blah. It was so special that he was #5 that Nebraska had another #5 playing kickoff special teams. Kinda diminished Fowler's whole segment.
