Preparations for game #2 vs Lamar are going as planned. By the sounds of it the Bears are relatively healthy, just going to miss LB Taylor Young for a few weeks with a collarbone fracture.
Blake is ready to go and will start his 26th career game on saturday again at Left Guard. The game will be on Sunday morning Australian time at 9.30am. Streams will be available online in the usual places as the game will not be televised here.
Also, here is a short interview from the Waco-Tribune with Blake.

Some of Blake's better plays from the SMU game in gifs
Split zone, stayed on the block just enough to stop the covering tackle and the back was able to extend.
Split zone on the goal line.
One of Blake's better plays, stay on the block and keep your feet moving to wall off the defender.
Inside zone read, edge defender crashed,
Playaction off power, picked up the run fit and gave Qb Seth Russell time to throw the back shoulder fade.
From the Right tackle position, the Dart play.
Also, it should be noted that the penalty called on Blake for being illegally down field should not have been called and when you look at the still frame, you can see that he was NOT more than 3 yards past the line of scrimmage when the ball had left the QB's hand.
