Western Carolina Catamounts

After winning two straight games against VMI (43-35) and East Tennessee State (23-20), Western Carolina Catamounts suddenly went back to earth, succumbing to Samford, 13-31, last Saturday. Despite rolling to a fast start where they led 10-0 in the first quarter and 13-7 in the second, the Catamounts fell victim to bad defending and the hot hands of Samford play-caller Liam Welch, who scored on a rushing touchdown in the second quarter to put the Bulldogs in the driver’s seat and passed for TD in the third period. Their offense fell silent in the remaining 40 minutes of the game to take the loss. Western Carolina quarterback Tyrie Adams passed for 181 yards and registered a touchdown but only completed 13 of 29 pass attempts. Wide receiver Clayton Berdall played well for the Catamounts registering 74 reception yards.

Players to watch: T. Adams QB 135 CMP 206 ATT 1587 YDS 65.5 CMP% 11.7 AVG 78 LNG 11 TD 5 INT; D. Spencer RB 117 ATT 507 YDS 4.2 AVG 44 LNG 4 TD; C. Young. RB 85 ATT 489 YDS 5.5 AVG 48 LNG 1 TD; D. Patten WR 45 REC 426 YDS 9.5 AVG 42 LNG 2 TD; N. Mullen WR 29 REC 254 YDS 8.8 AVG 23 LNG 1 TD.

Alabama Crimson Tide

Alabama bounced back from their setback against Louisiana State University, winning 38-7 against Mississippi State last Saturday. The victory came with a price for the Tide as star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa dislocated his hip in the first half. Tagovailoa, who is tabbed by experts as one of the top picks in next year’s National Football League draft, hurt his hip while being dragged down by two Bulldogs tacklers as Alabama was up, 35-7. The team declared the play-caller as out for the remainder of the season.

Aside from Tagovailoa, defensive ends Raekwon Davis and Phidarian Mathis, nose guard DJ Dale and wide receiver Henry Ruggs III likewise sustained injuries against the Bulldogs and are questionable to play against Western Carolina. If these players will be out for this game, Alabama mentor Nick Saban is expected to lean on the defense of first-year ends Justin Egoigbe and Byron Young and defensive tackle Christian Barmore. Sophomore quarterback Mac Jones will again be tested if he can lead the Crimson Tide to victory in this critical juncture of the season.

Players to watch: T. Tagovailoa QB 180 CMP 252 ATT 2840 YDS 71.4 CMP% 11.3 AVG 85 LNG 33 TD 3 INT 10 SACK -63 SYL 206.9 RTG; N. Harris RB 144 ATT 876 YDS 6.1 AVG 31 LNG 9 TD; B. Robinson Jr. RB 87 ATT 415 YDS 4.8 AVG 37 LNG 4 TD; D. Smith WR 56 REC 1026 YDS 18.3 AVG 85 LNG 11 TD; J. Jeudy WR 64 REC 867 YDS 13.5 AVG 40 LNG 9 TD.
