Local of the week
Iowa State LG Robby Garcia (Jesuit High): The No. 24 Cyclones have been one of the country’s biggest surprises, and Garcia deserves some of the credit for that as a starter on the offensive line. He’ll have a big test Saturday; No. 4 TCU looks like a College Football Playoff contender thanks to the Big 12’s best defense.
USF LB Auggie Sanchez (Northeast High) is close to making program history. He enters today’s game against Houston with 351 tackles. That’s 16 shy of the school record, set by Kawika Mitchell in 2002. Sanchez has 47 tackles this year.
UF running out
Thanks in part to RB Malik Davis (Jesuit High), the Gators have rushed for at least 165 yards in five consecutive games for the first time since 2009. It’s hard to see that streak extending to six. Georgia’s defense allows only 2.8 yards per rush — seventh-best in the country.
