COLLEGE FOOTBALL QB REPORT
Ohio State head coach Ryan Day said QB Kyle McCord (Stats) will start on Saturday against Youngstown State, but Devin Brown (Stats) will play more than he did Week 1, according to NBC4 Columbus’ Whitney Harding. After the Buckeyes’ season-opening win over Indiana, Day said the plan was to get Brown in the game more than the six snaps he received. This probably won’t mean much against an FCS opponent, but it’ll be more interesting to see how reps are shared when Ohio State plays tough competition, which will start Week 4 at Notre Dame.
Alabama listed Jalen Milroe (Stats) OR Tyler Buchner (Stats) OR Ty Simpson (Stats) OR Dylan Lonergan (Stats) at the starting QB position for Saturday night’s game vs. Texas. Milroe pulled away as the favorite during fall camp and did nothing in his season-opening start against Middle Tennessee to show he is not the top option when the Crimson Tide get ready for this big-time matchup. Three of those four options entered the game Week 1 with Lonergan not appearing as a true freshman.
Ole Miss QB Jaxson Dart (Stats) is listed as the starter on the team’s depth chart for Saturday’s game at Tulane, and head coach Lane Kiffin confirmed he’s the guy moving forward. Dart did not see much of a test in Week 1 in a blowout win over Mercer, and Spencer Sanders (Stats) did not enter till the third quarter with the Rebels up by a ton. This is a top-25 matchup with Ole Miss favored by just a touchdown, so it will be interesting to see if there is a short leash if Dart struggles early.
DEPTH CHART & INJURY REPORT
Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz said QB sneaks and bootlegs are not in the game plan due to Cade McNamara’s (Stats) quad injury, according to Des Moines Register’s Chad Leistikow. McNamara played most of Week 1 against Utah State before giving way to Deacon Hill (Stats) when the Hawkeyes had a comfortable lead. He admitted after the game he’s not playing at 100% and will get a tougher test at Iowa State on Saturday.
