tmp_9076-1444006255_100515c03-web-keionta-davis_t1070_h5b8b3ac1dc0c0234ff9f898b74be98ec07-1009850989

UT Chattanooga (3-0) vs Samford (2-0)

 

Players to Watch:

UTC: DE Keionta Davis, OG Corey Levin, QB Alejandro Bennifield, RB Derrick Craine

SAM: QB Devlin Hodges, WR Karel Hamilton, LB Tonne Osaigbovo

 

Both teams come into this match up undefeated, only one  team will end the day that way. UTC has some tough players and NFL prospects that suit up for them. Keionta Davis and company will be bringing some heat and Corey Levin is arguably the best FCS offensive lineman. Samford will be looking for the big upset, and the only way that can happen is keeping Hodges upright.

 

Eastern Washington (2-1) vs Northern Arizona (1-2)

 

Players to Watch:

EWU: WR Cooper Kupp, WR Kendrick Bourne, QB Gage Gabrud, WR Stu Stiles

 
NAU: QB Case Cookus, WR Emmanuel Butler, WR Elijah Marks, RB Corbin Jountti

 
This game has all the makings of a shoot out, as two prolific offenses square up this week. EWU’s Gabrud was struggled some in the win against UNI, and was relieved. But, he should start again this week. Either way, whoever starts will be armed with a bevy of playmakers, including Kupp and Bourne. NAU’s Cookus is one of the best young signal callers in the game, and is fresh off a seven touchdown performance. His right hand man, and top weapon, Butler, is a 6’4 receiver that catches everything thrown at him. If you’re a fan of high scoring, aerial assaults, tune in.

 

 

Colgate (1-1) vs Richmond (2-1)

 

Players to Watch:

Colgate: QB Jake Melville, RB James Holland, WR John Maddaluna III, LB Trent Williams

 
Richmond: FS David Jones, QB Kyle Lauletta, WR Brian Brown, DT Winston Craig

 
Richmond will look to get back on track after dropping one to Stony Brook last week. Richmond David Jones and that defense will have to be sharp, as they match up with QB Jake Melville, who is coming off a career passing game (315 yards and 5 touchdowns).

 

 

Jacksonville State (2-1) vs Liberty (1-2)

 

Players to Watch:

JSU: QB Eli Jenkins, RB Roc Thomas, WR Josh Barge, Center Casey Dunn

 
LIB: RB Carrington Mosley, RB Todd Macon, WR B.J. Darrow

 
After a solid win last week over Coastal Carolina, Jacksonville State will be trying to keep the ball rolling this week. Expect heavy doses of Roc Thomas, with some Eli Jenkins playmaking sprinkled in. Liberty will be looking for the upset, and will be trying to pound the rock too.
