Week 11 of College Football had plenty of big performances and some disappointing performances. We will look at what happened in Week 2 and some players to watch out for in Week 12.
Week 11 Review
Rachaad White, Arizona State – In a game where Arizona State had to fight back against a bad Washington team, White dominates. White had 237 of the Sun Devil’s 376 total yards and scored two TDs, including the game-winning one at the end. He has become the lead back, and the focus on the offense as DeaMonte Trayanum is just a backup as of now. In the last two games, White has almost 400 rushing yards and five TDs, and he could be a top-five back in the 2022 NFL Draft class.
Garrett Wilson, Ohio State – After missing the Nebraska game, Wilson reminded us why many have him as one of the top receivers coming out in 2022. He led the team with ten receptions for 126 yards and three TDs, while also adding a 51 yard TD on the ground. The Buckeyes showed that the Boilermakers would not be making an upset this day. Wilson is having his best year to date with 53 receptions, 813 yards, and nine scores.
Braelon Allen, Wisconsin – Allen, and Wisconsin continue to roll on with a dominating win over Northwestern. Freshman Allen is the Wisconsin RB everyone thought Jalen Berger would be. He rushed for 173 yards and three TDs and seems to be the next in a long line of dominating Badger RBs for the next couple of years. Allen has six straight games on over 100 yards rushing and should easily surpass 1000 yards rushing even with playing sparingly in the season’s first two games.
Week 12 Preview
Treylon Burks, Arkansas – The Razorbacks narrowly escaped a close game against LSU in overtime, and Burks was held very quiet through the game. He only had four catches for 16 yards, and it was the first time in five games that he was held without a TD and under 60 yards receiving. Burks gets a big test this week when he faces Alabama, and he needs to have a huge day if Arkansas is to stay competitive.
Kenny Pickett, Pittsburgh – Pickett led Pittsburgh to another big win against North Carolina in the downpouring rain. He helped create a huge lead and then closed it out in overtime and finished with 346 yards and three TDs. Although I still cannot see Pickett going in the first round in the Draft, his numbers cannot be overlooked with seven games over 300 yards and 32 TDs to four INTs. This week, he looks to keep the momentum going in a big ACC matchup with Virginia.
Zay Flowers, Boston College – Flowers finally broke out of his TD slump against Georgia Tech with his first TD since September 25 against Missouri. Not all of this is his fault, as he has missed starting QB Phil Jurkovec. Even though he only had two receptions, both were TDs, and he looks to build on this against FSU, who has the 81st defense versus the pass. Flowers was a sleeper coming into the year, and with Jurkovec back, he can start moving up draft boards for 2022 with a much bigger production.
