Three College Football Players To Watch
Similar to last week, this week’s batch of games should be entertaining. Once again, there are four top-25 matchups, including three in the SEC that will play a huge role in the race to play in SEC Championship Game.
Let’s take a look at three players Eagles fans should keep an eye out for later today.
1. Teez Tabor, CB, Florida
This week’s opponent: @ No. 14 Tennessee — 3:30 p.m. (CBS)
He’d rather be called Teez over his given name, Jalen. But whatever you want to call him, he’s one of the top corners in the collegiate game. The junior was suspended for the season-opener against UMass, but he recorded an interception in the SEC-opener against Kentucky. He’ll need to perform well against Tennessee’s talented set of receivers.
2. Josh Reynolds, WR, Texas A&M
This week’s opponent: vs. No. 17 Arkansas (in Arlington) — 9 p.m. (ESPN)
The Aggies’ number one pass catcher has performed very well with new quarterback Trevor Knight in their first three games this season, catching 13 passes for 229 yards and two touchdowns. Reynolds has done pretty well against the Razorbacks in their previous two meetings at AT&T Stadium, including a 100-yard game last year.
3. Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia
This week’s opponent: @ No. 23 Mississippi — Noon (ESPN)
He was one of the most impressive backs before going down with a left knee injury against Tennessee. And he picked up where he left off in the season-opener against North Carolina, scoring two touchdowns on 222 yards from 32 carries. Since then, he’s slowed down considerably in close games against Nicholls State and Missouri. He’s facing the “landsharks” this week, who gave up 334 total rushing yards last week against No. 1 Alabama. Chubb will look to get back on pace again, and stop Ole Miss’ chance of beating the Bulldogs for the first time in 20 years.
Game Of The Week: No. 17 Arkansas vs. No. 10 Texas A&M (in Arlington) — 9 p.m. (ESPN)
This is the third time these two teams will meet at AT&T Stadium, and the last two meetings ended in overtime. If everything stays the same, this should be another thrilling game in “Jerry World,” especially with Joe Tessitore on the call.
Honorable Mentions: No. 12 Georgia @ No. 23 Ole Miss (Noon, ESPN), No. 11 Wisconsin @ No. 8 Michigan State (Noon, BTN), No. 19 Florida @ No. 14 Tennessee (3:30 p.m., CBS)
Here are the players we recapped over the past two weeks:
Samaje Perine, RB, Oklahoma
Travis Rudolph, WR, Florida State
Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama
Isaiah Ford, WR, Virginia Tech
Desmond King, CB, Iowa
Jalen Hurd, RB, Tennessee
