Despite a handful of games being canceled or postponed due to the coronavirus, the show must go on for many more college football teams this weekend. Even with more than a dozen teams not playing, there are still quite a few prospects to watch today. All times are Eastern Standard Time

  • Quincy Roche, Edge, Miami v. Virginia Tech (12 PM on ESPN): Quincy Roche has had a productive first season with the Hurricanes and continues to establish himself as one of the top defenders in the country. Virginia Tech will be a test for Miami and Roche will need to spearhead any effort to slow down the Hokies offense.
  • Jaylin Williams, Cornerback, Indiana v. MSU (12 PM on ABC): Indians is 3-0 and Jaylin Williams has picked off three passes through those three games to help them stay undefeated. The six foot corner is one of a few playmakers in the Hoosier secondary and will need to be on his A-Game again against MSU to keep Indiana unbeaten.
  • Darius Hodge, Edge, Marshall v. MTSU (12 PM on CBSSN): Marshall is undefeated and ranked to start the season and Darius Hodge has played a big role in their success. The speedy pass rusher has put up great numbers behind the line of scrimmage through six games. Middle Tennessee fields a dynamic offense and Hodge will be crucial in slowing them down.
  • Javonte Williams, Running Back, UNC v. Wake Forest (12 PM on ACCN): Javonte Williams has been a touchdown machine for the Tar Heels, torching defense after defense all season. With 17 scores through only seven games, Williams will set his sights on the Wake Forest defense. Who knows what show he’ll put on today.
  • Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, Linebacker, Notre Dame v. Boston College (3:30 PM on ABC): After a stellar performance against Clemson last week, Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah will be tasked with slowing down a talented Boston College offense. Can he continue his hot start to the season?
  • Brandon Sebastian, Cornerback, Boston College v. Notre Dame (3:30 PM on ABC): Notre Dame put up massive offensive numbers last week when they upset Clemson. This week, Brandon Sebastian will need to play lights out to keep the Fighting Irish at bay. Sebastian is a tall, lean corner with excellent ball skills. A few big plays from the redshirt junior could be the difference in what should be a tight game.
  • Kyle Pitts, Tight End, Florida v. Arkansas (7 PM on ESPN): Every week, it is worth tuning in to see what insane highlights Kyle Pitts puts up for the Gators. The 6’6” Philadelphia native has eight touchdown grabs on only 24 catches. That’s right, a third of his catches have been scores while he averages over 17 yards a reception. Needless to say, he’s must-see television once again this week.
  • CJ Verdell, Running Back, Oregon v. Washington State (7 PM on Fox): After a workman-like performance against Stanford, CJ Verdell will be relied on to keep the Ducks offense going against WSU. Verdell will have plenty of running room given how well Oregon’s offensive line is playing and seeing if he can turn it into big plays will be a key storyline in this rivalry game.
  • Kwity Paye, Defensive Lineman, Michigan v. Wisconsin (7:30 PM on ABC): Kwity Paye is one of the nation’s best defenders no matter where he lined up. He’s showed dominance as a pass rusher this year and has always been a tough run stopping lineman. Against Wisconsin, Michigan will rely on Paye to play all over their line to slow down the Badgers running game. With Wisconsin likely relying on the ground game to keep them in it, Paye will have plenty of opportunity to make plays behind the line of scrimmage.
  • Elijah Molden, Cornerback, Washington v. Oregon State (11 PM on FS1): Elijah Molden is the next in line for the Washington defensive back pipeline. Molden is a scrappy, instinctive cornerback who is a phenomenal slot defender against the pass and run. Molden’s first game of the season is absolutely worth your attention if you can stay up that late.
