Notable Tidbits

 

This is definitely the preseason where stat padding is king, and it shows with a number of players tied for #2 in interceptions and #3 in sacks. Hopefully the stat padding continues, and players are able to break away from each other in week 2. I would also expect Auburn's lead at a couple of these positions to drop next week, as they are the only team in conference that has played 2 games.

 

Fernando Garcia-Vasquez had himself a great game against the Wisconsin Badgers. The freshman OLB had a great debut against a tough Badgers squad with two sacks, and two tackles for loss. We at SSC look forward to the remainder of his collegiate career.

 

Ole Miss might not be projected to win too many games this year, but they still had a great game against the Trojans of Troy. Running back Zaire Minor led the way, with 106 yards, and two touchdowns on only 19 carries against their Sun Belt opponent.

 

 

Matchup of the Week

 

Week 1: 

WR Deontray Clay  vs  CB Branden Pollard

 

One of the most anticipated matchups this week was between the high powered passing attack of the Rice Owls and the stalwart defense of South Carolina. In particular the battles between, Rice wideout Deontray Clay and young South Carolina corner Branden Pollard stood out.

 

Clay: 6 receptions for 74 yards

Pollard: Didn't make the stat sheet.

 

Verdict: Deontray Clay

 

Week 2:

QB Bryce Thompson :duke: vs :bama: Alabama Secondary

 

In both teams' start to the season, and one of the most anticipated matchups of the week, heisman candidate Bryce Thompson and the Duke Blue Devils go up against the star studded Alabama Crimson Tide defense. A good performance by the Crimson Tide secondary could vault the team into title contention, and expectations in Tuscaloosa are high.

That's a big gap from 1st to 2nd.
