Can anything top the 2013 Iron Bowl?

Turkey.  Stuffing.  Delayed Flights.   Oh yeah, it’s that time of year again.  Rivalry Week is upon us in the college football universe.  For some teams, their rivalry game is the only game that matters all season.  Others need to beat their hated rival to stay in the play off race.  Regardless, winning is the most important statistic of the weekend.  (more…)

Can Brett Hundley save his draft stock with a big time performance agaisnt his cross town rivals?

Will the real Brett Hundley please stand up? Week 13 is his show and there’s no bones about it. Yes, #8 Ole Miss vs Arkansas and #20 Missouri vs Tennessee will be crucial in SEC division races. #15 Arizona vs #17 Utah and Oklahoma State vs #7 Baylor will certainly be games worth paying attention too. But there’s no denying that we all will have a much clearer opinion of highly criticized UCLA QB Brett Hundley. (more…)

All hail Amari Cooper. Granted the Tennessee pass defense isn’t exactly the 2001 Patriots, but nonetheless the star junior receiver caught 9 passes for 224 yards and 2 touchdowns. He ran crisp routes, snatched the ball out of the air, and boy can he run after the catch. A night to remember for Cooper.

SEC Spotlight: I’ve been a fan of Mississippi State RB Josh Robinson for some time now, and I think he’s finally getting some of the recognition he deserves. Against a good Kentucky front 7 Robinson ran for 198 yards and 2 touchdowns, including two of the most impressive runs I’ve seen all year. He shows great balance, vision, and eye discipline consistently. He averaged over 8.5 yards per carry; that should say it all.

Saturday Slate: College Prospects to Watch in Week 9

2015 NFL Draft

NEPD Staff Writer: CJ Sousa

Whatever your opinion might be about the controversial ending to the Notre Dame vs Florida State game Saturday night, this one fact can’t be debated. Jameis Winston can flat out ball on a football field. He had one horrendous decision in the second quarter when he was in full retreat mode backwards, stopped, and flung a pass high over the middle which was easily intercepted. However, take away that one play from Winston, and he played a flawless game. He came out on fire in the second half, completing his first thirteen passes and he ended the night with 273 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Saturday Slate: Week 7 College Prospects to Watch.

NCAA Football: Mississippi State at South Carolina

NEPD Staff Writer: CJ Sousa

Wow. WOW. What a weekend in college football. Week 6 saw huge upsets, thrilling conclusions to games, and with Katy Perry getting substantial ESPN TV time, everyone truly went home winners Saturday (Except you, Alabama fans). Week 7 poses some just as important big time match-ups, but first let’s recap quickly.

SEC Battle Royale: It was truly separation Saturday in the SEC. First, Mississippi State took care of Texas A&M, and in convincing fashion. MSU QB Dak Prescott looked like a Heisman contender, and even though Prescott’s counterpart Kenny Hill compiled nice stats, he didn’t play so well. His favorite receiver was MSU LB Richie Brown, who caught 3 interceptions. The prospect everyone is talking about, MSU OLB Benardrick McKinney impressed throughout. Great flow, great anticipation… I’ve officially bought into the Junior ILB/OLB’s hype. In what was one of the ugliest games you’ll ever watch, Florida remains a contender in the SEC East after outlasting Tennessee 10-9. UF DE Dante Fowler Jr. was an animal and dominated the under matched Volunteers’ line. (more…)

Ray Graham might be the lone player drafted from the Compass Bowl.

NEPD Staff Writer: Dan Hope

The first day of the NFL playoffs will take center stage on Saturday, but before the professionals take the stage, there is one early-afternoon bowl game: the BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham, Ala., which will be televised at 1 p.m. ET on ESPN, and features the Pittsburgh Panthers versus the Mississippi Rebels.

There aren’t too many potential New England Patriots in this game, but if the desire for a full Saturday of football leads you to tune into this contest, there are a few players you should keep an eye on.
