Primetime Prospects to Watch : Week 11

NEPD Staff Writer: CJ Sousa

Not all that interested in Bills/Jets Thursday Night Football?  Or just want to get a jump on the weekend?  No matter the case, NEPD has your viewers’ guide for the key prospects to watch in the prime time match ups, as well as a quick stock check on prospects moving up and down the draft board.

Who’s Up:

Entire Alabama Front 7: I’m kind of kidding here, kind of not.  Alabama has dominated all season long led by DT’s A’Shawn Robinson and Jarran Reed.  Last Saturday night, LSU got a front row seat.   The defensive front bottled up Leonard Fournette all game long, embarrassing a talent laden LSU offensive line along the way.  Robinson, Reed, DE Jonathan Allen and ILB Reggie Ragland all stood out all game long.

Oregon.  Ohio State.  Truly pioneers of the collegiate national championship.  As the world was approaching a devastating second World War, Oregon and Ohio State were set to make a different kind of history.  The two schools met in the 1939 National Championship game in the first ever NCAA men’s basketball tournament (NABC at the time).  In front of a crowd of just over 15,000 people, Oregon prevailed over the Buckeyes 46-33.

Now, will a basketball game played 75 years ago impact what happens in Jerry World Monday night? Probably not. Nonetheless it is extremely ironic as the same two schools will meet in the first ever National Championship game in the playoff era. (more…)
