Storyline: Battle of the Quarterbacks: Collin Klein vs. Johnny Manziel
Player to Watch: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M Aggies
Projected Outcome: Kansas State Wildcats 27, Texas A&M Aggies 24
If you had to pinpoint two players as the stars of the 2012-13 college football season, chances are you'd go with quarterbacks Collin Klein and Johnny Manziel. With that being the case, why not go out on a limb and have them square off in a BCS Bowl Game?
Now, that's great television.
Klein has emerged as this season's Tim Tebow, rushing for 19 touchdowns and leading the Wildcats to a 10-0 start. Manziel, meanwhile, has become a human highlight reel with his cannon of an arm and playmaking legs.
Klein led Kansas State to an upset of Oklahoma in Norman, Okla. Manziel led Texas A&M to an upset of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Ala.
Must we continue?
As these two duel it out, there would be one player on the offensive side of the ball that could decide the outcome of things. That man, of course, is the other freshman that is taking College Station, Texas by storm.
6'5" wide receiver Mike Evans.
Evans would go up against a shaky pass defense that ranks 80th in the nation. Considering Texas A&M's ranks 81st, it'd be imperative that Evans flashes his big-play ability for Manziel downfield.
With at least five receptions in nine of 10 games, you could count on him for that. But would it be enough to win this one?
With Klein's never-say-die attitude, we'd be in store for an instant classic.
