Bowl Game Players To Watch. The Stars You Need To Know In Every Game

Alabama vs Cincinnati 

QB Bryce Young, Alabama: The star of the College Football Playoff show, the big-time passer without the big-time size – just 6-0 and 195 pounds – threw for 4,322 yards and an Alabama record 43 touchdown passes with just four picks. Unflappable, comfortable, and with the vision and decision-making ability beyond his years, the spotlight is on to do even more.

DE Will Anderson, Alabama: Michigan’s Aidan Hutchinson might have received more love and attention, but Anderson was the nation’s best pass rusher and possibly the top defensive performer. Along with his 91 tackles he led the country with 15.5 sacks and a whopping 31.5 tackles for loss.

QB Desmond Ridder, Cincinnati: The 6-4, 215-pound pro prospect turned his game up a few notches as the season went on, completing 66% of his throws on the year with 30 touchdowns and eight picks. It’s not a crazy thought to call him the best quarterback Alabama has seen all year – Matt Corral from Ole Miss included – with the size, experience, and all-around game to keep up the pace.

RB Jerome Ford, Cincinnati: The Alabama transfer gets a shot at his old team. The home run hitter took over games averaging over six yards per carry with 1,243 yards and 19 scores, crushing Houston with 187 yards and two touchdowns and with a score in each of the last eight games he was healthy for.
