We're in the ninth week of the college football season. As hard as it is to believe, teams have already begun to become bowl eligible.
Teams including Duke.
The Blue Devils are bowl eligible for the first time since 1994. Quarterback Sean Renfree and receiver Conner Vernon are having impressive seasons, but they don't make the cut for most underrated.
Also bowl eligible are undefeated Big East teams Louisville and Rutgers, who are both 7-0. Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is underrated, as are running backs Senorise Perry and Jeremy Wright, but they don't crack the list either. Neither does Scarlet Knights' running back Jawan Jamison, despite his 779 rushing yards this season.
And how about the Mississippi State Bulldogs?
Mississippi State is 7-0 and running back LaDarius Perkins is having a nice year, but he doesn't crack the list either.
So, we're well into the season, and plenty of names need to start getting some attention by the national media.
Here you go boys—finally some respect.
