MURFREESBORO - Middle Tennessee senior quarterback Logan Kilgore has been named to the Conference USA All-Academic Team as selected by the league's media relations directors for football. The all-academic team consists of student-athletes who have earned a 3.2 cumulative grade point average or better and are a starter or key reserve on their team.

Kilgore earned his undergraduate degree in three years and will receive his MBA this month. The Rocklin, CA, native has been named to the Commissioner's Honor Roll each semester at Middle Tennessee and is a Capital One Academic All-District III member and a two-time winner of the Terry Whiteside Award presented for excellence in academics, football, strength training, community service, and campus activities.

A member of the 2013 Manning Award Watch List, Kilgore owns the school record with 53 career touchdown passes and is the first player in MT history to throw for more than 2,000 yards in three consecutive seasons.
