After an interesting week one of the college football season, we get to watch football on Saturday and Sunday this week. Here are the three things I’ll be watching most on Saturday – I think you know what I’ll be watching on Sunday.
Florida Defensive Line vs Miami’s Stephen Morris
Stephen Morris is a player that many have pegged as the #1 Senior quarterback, but I haven’t seen the consistency that I’d like to. Florida’s defensive line is going to be a big test for Morris – especially the incredibly quick Dominique Easley.
Notre Dame Defensive Line vs Michigan’s Devin Gardner
Linemen Stephon Tuitt and Louis Nix III are two of my favorite defensive players in the 2014 NFL Draft. Respectively, these Richard Seymour and Vince Wilfork clones are likely top 15 picks in the 2014 NFL Draft.
One surprise player that could join them in the first round is Michigan QB Devin Gardner. Denard Robinson got all the publicity last year, but Gardner is the far better quarterback. Look for him to get a lot of Russell Wilson comparisons this year.
South Carolina Defensive Line vs Georgia’s Aaron Murray
If you haven’t heard of Jadeveon Clowney yet, you’ve been living under a very large rock. While he didn’t have the splash plays that he is known for against North Carolina, you could tell he had an impact on the Tarheels’ game plan.
Aaron Murray was inconsistent against Clemson in week one – looking like a first rounder at times and a 5’11” mid-round player at others. Playing against South Carolina will be another tough test for a quarterback that hasn’t passed many as of late.
What match-ups are you looking forward to in Week Two of the NCAA Football season?
