Top college football players to watch this weekend

Check out who could have a monster weekend in college football.

NCAA Football: Clemson at Boston College Stew Milne-USA TODAY Sports

Clemson wide receiver Mike Williams had some quiet games but came on strong over the last couple outings. However, Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson improved greatly over the past couple weeks which gave Williams more opportunities. Williams has 432 yards and three touchdowns. He averages 16 yards a catch and 13 yards when catching on third down. He is a key piece in the Clemson offense; he is also a big-play threat with a lengthy highlight reel.

Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts faces one of the most difficult challenges thus far in his young career this week as the Crimson Tide take on Tennessee in Knoxville. Hurts has amassed 1,538 total yards and 14 total touchdowns, five of those rushing. Now he has to face a team that not only has a great pass rush lead by Derek Barnett, but also does not give up when in a double digit hole. Alabama will not put this team away in the first half; they will keep fighting all game long. Most of the teams Alabama has played were all put away by half time. Joshua Dobbs and the Vols will be there for 60 minutes (or longer). The question is: will Hurts?

Florida State runningback Dalvin Cook has been a monster lately and has three straight 100 plus yard games. He has been on fire and the running game is the key to FSU’s success which means they will keep feeding him the ball. He is also the second best receiver on the team; Cook finds plenty of ways to get the ball.
