Liberty vs Eastern Michigan
QB Ben Bryant, Eastern Michigan: The former Cincinnati Bearcat took the Eastern Michigan offense up a few notches this season with a big midseason run of four 300-yard games in six including back-to-back 354-yard days. He might not push the ball deep too often, but he’s accurate on the midrange throws.
WR Hassan Beydoun, Eastern Michigan: At 5-8 and 174 pounds he’s not going to get physical with anyone, but he’s ultra-quick and he’s always making plays. He came up with a team-high 86 catches for 932 yards and four scores, and he can make things happen as a punt returner, too.
QB Malik Willis, Liberty: Is he really going to be the next superstar NFL quarterback? The 6-1, 215-pound former Auburn transfer became the darling of the scouting circuit after last season, but he’s been just okay this year with too many interceptions – 12 – and not enough big wins. However, he ran for 820 yards and 11 scores.
LB Storey Jackson, Liberty: The former Prairie View A&M star came to Liberty over the summer, and he turned into a force, The 6-2, 225-pounder led the team with 93 tackles and plays behind the line with 12 tackles for loss. Great against the run and great at getting all over the field, he was also great at getting into the backfield with 6.5 tackles for loss.
