Another full weekend of college football to watch and quite a few talented players will be on the field. Here are some names to watch.
- Antwane Wells Jr., WR, South Carolina v. UGA (12 p.m. ET on ESPN): After a productive stint at James Madison University, Antwane Wells Jr. took his talents to the SEC. Wells is off to a strong start this season, as he has caught 15 passes in two games. The 6’1” pass catcher is Spencer Rattler’s clear favorite on Gamecock’s offense and Wells will be relied on against a stingy Georgia defense to keep SC in the game.
- Noah Sewell, LB, Oregon v. BYU (3:30 p.m. ET on Fox): Noah Sewell is trying to establish himself as a standout linebacker in the new Duck defense. While his season debut was rocky with Georgia completely dismantling Oregon, Sewell and the Ducks have a redemption game against BYU. The Cougars present a talented offense that Sewell will be tasked with curbing. A strong performance should help the third-year defender return to the national spotlight.
- Zach Evans, RB, old lady v. ga tech (3:30 p.m. ET on ABC): Zach Evans has been one of the many newcomers to the Ole Miss offense who made an immediate impact. Evans’ unique combination of speed, size, and agility makes him a dangerous role player in the Rebel running game. Evans will get his fair share of carries from him against Georgia Tech’s good astute defense this Saturday.
- Joey Porter Jr., CB, Penn State v. Auburn (3:30 p.m. ET on CBS): The race for the best cornerback in the nation is on and Joey Porter Junior’s start to the season puts him at the head of the pack. Porter will be speed tested by the SEC on Saturday, a great display of his talent.
- Sam Hartman, quarterback, forest stele v. Liberty (5 p.m. ET on ACCN): After a brief absence from the team, Sam Hartman returned last Saturday and fired it up for the Demon Deacons. Wake Forest is lucky to have their signal caller back and he will continue to pack the stat sheet against Liberty this weekend.
- Frank Harris, QB, UTSA v. Texas (8 p.m. on Longhorn Network): UTSA is not a powerhouse, but it has been a struggling team since Frank Harris started at quarterback. What Harris lacks in prototypical size, he makes up for in accuracy, instinct and the ability to make moving plays. Harris is a true player at the position and will try to pull off a big upset on Saturday.
- Tyler Van Dyke, quarterback, Miami v. Texas A&M (9 p.m. ET on ESPN): There are quite a few very good quarterbacks in the country right now and Miami’s Tyler Van Dyke is definitely among them. The Canes have been rolling to start the season and Van Dyke has been a key factor in that. He has a pro-ready frame with a great arm and he can show it against the Aggies.
