Tampa Bay Tigers
Four local receivers will likely start in the Auburn-Clemson game: Clemson's Deon Cain (Tampa Bay Tech) and Ray-Ray McCloud (Sickles High) and Auburn's Nate Craig-Myers (Tampa Catholic) and Ryan Davis (Lakewood High). They combined for 117 yards and two touchdowns last week, and don't be surprised if one makes a game-changing play tonight.
Local of the week
Georgia LT Isaiah Wynn (Lakewood High): Starting a true freshman (Jake Fromm) is hard enough, but putting his debut on the road at a Notre Dame team that had 11 tackles for a loss last week is even harder. That means it's on Wynn and the rest of the line to give Fromm a chance to win his first start.
Two former Raymond James Stadium participants meet in very different circumstances when Western Kentucky travels to Illinois. Former USF QB Mike White will try to lead his Hilltoppers over the Illini and former Bucs coach Lovie Smith. White passed for 264 yards last week, while Smith is 4-9 since taking over Illinois.
The heated high school rivalry between Pasco and Zephyrhills continues in college. Rutgers WR Janarion Grant (Pasco) is one punt or kickoff touchdown away from breaking the NCAA record. He'll try to get that today against an Eastern Michigan team that includes LB Jaylen Pickett (Zephyrhills).
