The week leading up to New Years Day always provides us with a first glimpse at some college seniors who might be playing on Sundays next year. Let’s take a look at some of those players you may want to check out this week, starting with today.
Today: Western Michigan vs. Purdue, 4:30 p.m ET
Jordan White, WR – Western Michigan: White leads the nation in receptions with 127 for 1,646 yards and 16 touchdowns. The All-American has nine touchdowns in his last four games.
Thursday: Notre Dame vs. Florida State, 5:30 p.m. ET
Michael Floyd, WR – Notre Dame: Floyd has been a factor for the Irish since his freshman season and now owns school records for career catches (266), receiving yards (3,645), and touchdowns (36). He’s an explosive player that scouts will certainly have their eyes on.
Thursday: Baylor vs. Washington, 9 p.m. ET
The two guys that helped Robert Griffin III win the Heisman:
Terrance Ganaway, RB – Baylor: The man who took loads of pressure off of RG3 with his stellar running game should be fun to watch. Ganaway gained 1,347 yards and 16 touchdowns on the ground this season.
