    YES SIR Leonardfan! Thanks for starting this thread ....Peter LeBlanc is an outside speed receiver! Hope he gets to run on a jet sweep later! I'll give the erratic passing Levi Lewis some credit on that 48 yard throw ...you never know with him. LeBlanc has the wheels to run it down!

    Saturday's "CF Game of the Week" looks like Notre Dame hosting Purdue at 2:30pm. The Irish start 9 whites including QB Jack Coan and TE Michael Mayer, the team's leading receiver. Purdue is without lead running back Zander Horvath for the next 4-6 weeks, but will start 8 whites including star DE George Karlaftis and slot dynamo Jackson Anthrop.

    Other matchups of note include: Utah State at Air Force at 7:30pm (9 and 11 white starters, respectively), USC at Washington State at 3:30pm (RB Max Borghi's Cougars are 8.5 point underdogs to the coachless Trojans), and Michigan State's 11 white starters visiting coal-black #24 Miami (3:30pm) as 6 point underdogs. #23 BYU hosts #19 Arizona State as slight underdogs at 10:15 pm - they'll need a win to hold onto a spot in the rankings.

    It's probably too much to ask of Nebraska to give Oklahoma a run for its money. I will root for Florida to knock off Alabama out of principle, but since they're both SEC teams, a loss won't really move either team down far in the polls.

    Thanks for the great write up Phall. We need any positive entertainment we can get these days. Sad and dark times outside of the sports world. I will try to catch as many
    of these games as possible. I would love to see Mad Max Borghi have a huge game on the road against a good defense. I wish he got more carries but as long as he stays
    healthy I can't complain to much. It's all about getting as many white running backs into the NFL as we can. BYU will have a tough game against the Sun Devils but I think
    with their size and strength advantage they can hopefully get a win.

    Great Write up phall. Now I know which games to watch and who to root for. Hopefully Iowa beats up Kent st and keeps it going. They should but their offense isn’t that great.

    Clemson/Georgia Tech might be one to watch as we should get to see if Clemson RB Will Shipley follows up last weeks 8 carry 80 yard/2 TD performance. Also the return of Clemson Safety Nolan Turner.

    I hope MSU wins today - they have been a nice surprise early this season and a win against an odious Miami squad would help our optics

    Shouldn't be a problem. Miami struggled to beat Appalachian State. Although ASU has been decent in some years, they are not quite the same this year.

    Curious to see how Crum does against the elite Iowa defense - he struggled in Week 1. Rooting for him to have a solid outing today as long as Iowa wins. Carson Strong of Nevada also going up against a solid defense in Kansas St.

    Also after last week I realized I can't keep up on FCS weekly stats like I thought I was going to be able too. I'll try to find notable performances and make not of them either here or in the respective thread in the CFB Football stars sub. Others should feel free to do the same - kind of gets old when it's only @TwentyTwo @Red Raider and myself making note of performances by lesser heralded White athletes.

    Shocked at this low score in The Nebraska/Oklahoma game. Should bode well for Nebraska if they can keep this up and Martinez can lead some scoring drives.

    The Yale game isn’t on here, but I’ve been keeping an eye on the box score....
    Zane Dudek has 14 carries for 60 yards, no touchdowns...
    I’m hoping to see him rip a long one....

    No Mike Epstein again last night for Illinois.
    Syracuse is crushing their lower level opponent, but zero carries for Lutz....

    Unfortunately Oliver Martin is out for the Huskers for the third week in a row. I can't find any official word on his injury.

    Cincinnati's Alec Pierce showing why he's a Big Time Wide Receiver @ 6'-3" ! Nice TD Catch!

    NICE write up Phall!

    Ugh, Martinez eats two "coverage" sacks trying to run a 90-second drill. Poor situational awareness, and that touted mobility suddenly went invisible. Nebraska has a fine defense, but it's hard to win any college game scoring 16.

    Anyone know who to root for in this Indiana-Cincinnati game? Both teams have quotabacks but Cincinnati has Pierce at least.

    Explosive Freshman Tailback Will Shipley TD for Clemson!

    Alec Pierce finished 5 - 86 - TD

    Clemson had a short field, Shipley rushed for 34 of the 39 yards of the drive before topping it off with the TD!

    Yes. TT. Shipley looking fantastic. 7 carries 37 yards and a TD early. He looks like a senior body wise. He's filling out nicely.

    Don. Was it Will Taylor or Shipley that muffed the punt return before that drive? I think it was Shipley. Swinney got after him on the sideline, but stuck with his freshman RB. You don't see that very often. Usually if whitey drops a pass or bobbles a punt return, he's finished. Kudos to Swinney.

    It was Shipley, and I agree with you, I didn't expect to see him join the offense right away. Great to see.

    Excellent drive...The announcers gave lots of props to Shipley....
    RB by committee time for Clemson....Not working out too good.

    Washington St stuffed 4th and goal at the one....
    Should’ve given it to Max.

    I'm on the Will Shipley Bandwagon and man can this kid play. It's very rare for a freshman running back to become a star in his first year let alone
    at a Major Top College Football Program that competes for National Championships on a regular basis. This shows the elite talent of Shipley. Love
    watching this kid play and he will only get better. Clemson has become one of my favorite teams to watch along with Iowa and Wisconsin. I really
    hope Shipley can break a couple of long ones and get his first 100 yard game of the year. He would have easily had it last week if he touched the ball more.
