Teams with Quarterback Questions

8. Ole Miss – Chad Kelly started and went 9-of-15 passing for 215 yards and two touchdowns against Tennessee-Martin en route to the Rebels scoring 76 points in a laugher. Ryan Buchanan and DeVante Kincade also played but this is Kelly’s job.

7. Georgia – Greyson Lambert went 8-of-12 for 141 yards and two touchdowns, including this 28-yard score to Malcolm Mitchell in spectacular fashion. With Nick Chubb, Keith Marshall and Sony Michel combining to run for 234 yards and four touchdowns, Lambert can keep playing like that and the Dawgs can get to Atlanta.

6. Alabama – Jake Coker started and didn’t have to do a lot with Derrick Henry running all over the Wisconsin Badgers for 147 yards and three touchdowns, but Coker managed the game and Alabama won. They don’t need him to do anything more than hand it off to Henry and Kenyan Drake. When he was asked to throw, Coker was 15-of-21 for 213 yards and a touchdown against a Wisconsin defense that was fourth in the nation in total defense and passing defense last year. They’ll take this all year and take their chances with their defense and Henry.

5. Oregon – Vernon Adams was a late add to the program after transferring from Eastern Washington after two years as the Walter Payton Award runner-up and in his first game with the Ducks looked great against his former team. Now, the real test will be seeing Adams against a good FBS team, because we know he can dominate a FCS team. Oregon travels to Michigan State next weekend in what will be a potential coming out party for Adams.
