Analysis

While Georgia State hosted Penn State in Atlanta for the short-lived “satellite camp” era of college football, the Nittany Lions will likely not be as accommodating when the Panthers show up in State College on Saturday.  Yes, Penn State is a bona-fide Top-10 team with superior talent across the board, however, that does not mean there are not some intriguing individual matchups to watch, namely this perimeter meeting between two potential NFL players.

Hamilton (6000/205) primarily plays in the slot and has put together a productive career with 167 receptions for 2,104 yards (12.6 avg.) and nine touchdowns.

Sullivan (5110/195) is no secret to NFL scouts with his combination of size, speed and athleticism. As a four-year starter and honorable mention All-Sun Belt selection the last two seasons, he has collected 137 total tackles, 15 pass breakups and 6 interceptions during his time at GSU.

Best of the Rest:

Notre Dame @ Boston College: OT #68 Mike McGlinchey vs. DE #7 Harold Landry
Colorado State @ Alabama: WR #4 Michael Gallup vs. CB #28 Anthony Averett
Clemson @ Louisville: CB #31 Ryan Carter vs. WR #7 Reggie Bonnafon

Last Week

Iowa 44, Iowa State 41 (OT)
RB #25 Akrum Wadley vs. LB #7 Joel Lanning

The Hawkeyes survived an impressive showing by the Cyclones as they leaned on Wadley who accounted for 260 yards in total offense and scored two touchdowns. He rushed for 118 yards on 28 carries, caught 3 passes for 72 yards and added 3 kickoff returns for 70 more yards. Lanning, in transitioning from QB to linebacker, played an inspired game with 11 total tackles, including 1 tackle-for-loss.
