Cincinnati Bengals: Must-watch Week 3 college football matchups
There are several reasons for Cincinnati Bengals fans to watch the White Out.
Auburn (22) vs. Penn State (10)
If your Saturday evening is free, check out the Auburn vs. Penn State game.
Bengals fans should keep an eye on Penn State’s Rasheed Walker. The redshirt junior was ranked 49th overall on PFF’s preseason rankings. According to PFF, Walker allowed two sacks on 383 pass block attempts. He has steadily improved in that area over his career. He has spent his career at left tackle, save a few snaps at right tackle. Of course, that will not prevent NFL teams from hoping he can be versatile.
Other Nittany Lions to scout:
- Jaquan Brisker (S)
- Jahan Dotson (WR)
For Auburn, the player to watch for Bengals fans is cornerback Roger McCreary. He plays on the boundary. He is a very good tackler, logging 96 tackles thus far in his career. So far this season, he has allowed a passer rating of 36.2 when targeted. He may be considered a third-round prospect for now, but he should be a fast riser up draft boards. This week will be a good challenge for him. Dotson battling McCreary should be a fun matchup to watch.
Other Auburn players to watch:
- Owen Pappoe (LB)
- Zacoby McClain (LB)
- Smoke Monday (CB/S)
- Shaun Shivers (RB)
It is going to be a fun slate of games today! Bengals fan, know that someone you watch today very well may end up in stripes next year.
