Edwards, a 6-foot, 220-pound junior transfer from LSU, was held out of last year's game against Duke under similar circumstances. However, he had been heralded as having brought a new attitude to the field this season. In recent contests, John Bunting complimented Edwards on his improved play.
Edwards has rushed 65 times for 238 yards and a touchdown in seven games. He's also caught seven passes for 50 yards.
