A slower Saturday on the big game front?  Perhaps.  However the top NFL Draft prospects won’t be taking the weekend off – and neither should your television.  Here are the most prospect oriented games to keep an eye on.

#22 BYU vs Michigan 12:00 ABC

Michigan has been trending upwards since Week 1, but possibly face their toughest test yet with BYU.  Quarterback play will be big in this noon showdown.  Michigan QB Jake Rudock has already thrown five interceptions, and likely won’t be able to overcome those mistakes against a talented BYU front.

Week 3 offers up three SEC tilts with an interesting late game in Los Angeles.  This prospect preview will save you the in-game googling and highlight the top NFL Draft prospects in each game.

#18 Auburn vs #13 LSU 3:30 CBS

Always one of my favorite games of the year.  Auburn survived the scare of all scares last week with an overtime win over FCS Jacksonville State, while LSU won in hostile Starkville by the skin of their teeth. I get it with Auburn, and although that game shouldn’t have been that close – there is something to be said for battling back to win when nothing is going right.  Should Jeremy Johnson be the Jeremy Johnson we all expected to see, Auburn could easily walk out of Baton Rouge with a victory.

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?

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…)

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…)

Saturday Slate: Week 5 College Football Prospects To Watch

Party of one, you may be seated Mississippi State. In what is by far the best division in college football (SEC West), Mississippi State finally deserves to sit at the contenders’ table.

The Bulldogs owned week 4 by going into Death Valley and beating #8 LSU and ending their 14 game losing streak against the Tigers. MSU QB Dak Prescott threw for 268 yards and 2 touchdowns, while also beating the Tigers on the ground with 105 yards and 1 touchdown. While that upset was going on, another one was brewing.

The cupcakes will start going away soon, I promise. For a college football weekend that didn’t provide numerous big time match-ups, Week 2 certainly surpassed expectations.
