College Football Mid-Season All-American Team

***These statistics were compiled prior to this past weekend’s games***

 

Offense

USP NCAA FOOTBALL: NORTH CAROLINA STATE AT LOUISVI S FBC USA KY

QB – Lamar Jackson, Louisville: Jackson is the most explosive player in the nation. Jackson is averaging 439.7 yards and five touchdowns per game. Coaches lose sleep at night prepping for him. Easiest choice on the list.

DC

RB – Dalvin Cook, Florida State: After a slow start Cook is really making teams pay on the ground. Cook averages 179.4 yards per game. Without a solid passing game, the Noles lean on their do it all back.

DPu

RB – Donnel Pumphrey, San Diego State: The nation’s leading rusher at the midpoint has played one less game while still averaging 185.2 yards per game and having 169 yards more than the next closest rusher.

JW

WR – James Washington, Oklahoma State: Washington racked up 296 yards’ vs Pitt early in the season is one of the most electric wide outs with the ball in his hands.

CDa

WR – Corey Davis, Western Michigan: Helping to guide his 7-0 Western Michigan team into the top 25, Davis has 44 catches for 652 yards and 10 TDs, which is tied for the most in the nation.

TE – Evan Engram, Ole Miss: Engram leads all tight ends with 590 receiving yards, and has caught five TDs. Going deep is what he does. Despite his team’s losses, he is Chad Kelly’s favorite and most consistent target.

NCAA Football: Cowboys Classic-Wisconsin vs Alabama

OL – Cam Robinson, Alabama: Anchoring the fourth ranked rushing attack in the nation, Robinson started slow but has built up steam. Roll Tide Roll.

DJ

OL – Dorian Johnson, Pitt: Johnson is the heart and soul of this line. Starting 33 straight games and helping the Panthers have the 2nd best rushing attack in the ACC.

PE

OL –  Pat Elflein, Ohio State: Elflein anchors an offensive line that is getting six yards per carry and 6.5 yards per catch on first downs, and they’re also second-best in fewest TFLs allowed.

EP

OL – Ethan Pocic, LSU: Pocic is Mr. Versatile for the Tigers, playing multiple positions and settling in at Right Tackle due to injury. Lot of love for the ultimate team player.

RR

OL – Ryan Ramczyk, Wisconsin: Emerging as one of the more athletic tackles in the nation after moving up from Division III UW-Stevens Point. Ramczyk is helping power a very good Badger running game.

 

 

 

 

 

Defense

MA

DL –  Montravious Adams, Auburn: Adams is playing as well or better than any interior lineman in the nation. The senior has four tackles for loss and his first defensive touchdown of his career.

DB

DL – Derek Barnett, Tennessee: Barnett is making his case louder each week for SEC player of the year. After introducing himself to the college football world against Appalachian State and has not looked back. Six sacks (all in SEC play), 11.5 TFLs, five QB hurries, three passes defended, one interception and two forced fumbles is just the appetizer in long season of hunting quarterbacks.

MG

DL – Myles Garrett, Texas A&M:  Four sacks, six tackles for loss, six quarterback hurries, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Attacking Quarterbacks is what Garrett does.

The Ohio State Buckeyes defeated the Indiana Hoosiers 42 - 27. (The Columbus Dispatch / Eamon Queeney)_

LB – Raekwon McMillan, Ohio State: The numbers don’t say it but ask anyone in Columbus who should get this spot. It’s not even close.

RFo

LB – Reuben Foster, Alabama: Leading the Crimson Tide defense with 41 Tackles. Taking over for Reggie Ragland and not even missing a beat. Roll Tide Roll.

BB

LB – Ben Boulware, Clemson: 59 Total Tackles, including four tackles for loss, a key interception in the win at Auburn, and had 17 tackles in the victory over Louisville. Couple that with a National Player of the Week selection, Boulware is the heartbeat of this defense and it will challenge anyone to say anything other than that.

MF

CB – Minkah Fitzpatrick, Alabama: Ask Nick Saban and he will tell you that the secondary is having issues. Fitzpatrick should be the least of his worries. Totaling three INTs and five pass break ups, the former five-star corner is living up to the hype.

QW

CB – Quincy Wilson, Florida: Wilson has left the ducks and trucks in the rearview. Locking down the other side of the field for the Florida Gators defense, Wilson is making a case not only for best corner on his team but also to NFL Scouts in 2017.

JL

CB – Jourdan Lewis, Michigan: Injuries slowed Lewis down early but he has been the definition of a lockdown defender. According to PFF Lewis has only allowed 7 yards on 10 targets this season #NoFlyZone

JP

S – Jabrill Peppers, Michigan: Whether you list him as a LB, CB or S, Peppers does one thing and that’s make plays. This was a no brainer. Peppers has already tallied 10.5 TFLs. #HeismanHopeful.

MH

S – Malik Hooker, Ohio State: Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield is still having nightmares about Hooker. The Buckeyes defensive playmaker has four interceptions, totaling 117 return yards.

 

Special Teams

ZG

K – Zane Gonzalez, Arizona State: This is one easy. 19 of 20 on field goals and booming 3 of them from 50 plus yards.

 MW

P – Mitch Wishnowsky, Utah: The nation’s leader in yards per punt average at 49.1 yards is a weapon that makes the Utes defense very happy.

 CH

Ret: Carlos Henderson, Louisiana Tech: Is at the top of the college football world as a receiver but he is and even bigger threat as a return man averaging 26.3 yards per return.

MSU

Michigan State will be set to honor former punter Mike Sadler during today’s game against Wisconsin by placing his jersey number inside the Spartans logo at midfield.

Sadler, who tragically died in a car crash this summer, was inducted into the Michigan State Athletics Hall of Fame on Thursday night prior to the contest.

Spartans players will also wear a No. 3 on their helmets to honor Sadler during the Big Ten matchup with the Badgers.

Clemson recovers bizarre safety vs Georgia Tech

The saying is “When It Rains, It Pours”. For the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, the rain came in droves as the Clemson Tigers dropped the hammer Thursday night. One score by the Tigers was bizarre as ever as they have become accustomed to crazy scores.

Seminoles Lose Defensive End to Injury

JS

The Injury bug is hitting Florida State hard. The Noles will be without Josh Sweat versus South Florida today as he nurses a knee injury suffered against Louisville.

Jimbo Fisher told reporters Thursday that Sweat will be out one-to-two weeks after meniscus surgery on his left knee.

With Sweat on the sidelines, the Seminoles will likely rely on Jacob Pugh and Brian Burns to help slow the high-powered Bulls offense. Led by quarterback Quinton Flowers and a balanced rushing attack, South Florida is 3-0 on the season, outscoring their opponents by a combined 149-57.

Longhorns OL Arrested on DWI Charge

KP

Texas Longhorns starting offensive lineman Kent Perkins was arrested early Friday morning for driving while intoxicated, Austin police have confirmed.

Online records show Perkins, a senior, was booked into Travis County Jail at 4:54 a.m local time.

Perkins came into the season with 24 career starts, and has added two more to his resume since, starting twice at right guard. He missed one game due to injury, but has otherwise been a strong contributor on an offensive line that boasts a strong rushing attack.

The Longhorns are on a bye this week, but will travel to Oklahoma State for their first conference matchup on Oct. 1.

Wisconsin Badgers to Start Redshirt Freshman

AH

The Wisconsin Badgers have ended the speculation of a quarterback change early Thursday morning after announcing via Facebook Live that Redshirt Freshman Alex Hornibrook will start Saturday versus Michigan State.

Rumors began last week during the Badgers 23-17 victory over Georgia State that the plug might be pulled on starter Bart Houston after his in-game struggles. Houston was eventually benched in favor of Hornibrook, who came in and sparked the offense.

Hornibrook has thrown for 183 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in parts of two games this season.

The Oregon Ducks are known for some of the most vivacious uniforms in the land and this Saturday they won’t disappoint, yet again. This time paying homage to their own Duck mascot for their upcoming matchup against Colorado. One thing is for sure, the Ducks look to avenge a loss to Nebraska while also making sure The Duck is kept busy with his signature pushups after points are scored in bunches.
