2011 Bowl Games: 3 Highlight-Reel Stars You Have to Watch This Bowl Season
In the past, we’ve seen plenty of college football’s greatest players soak up the spotlight and make the most of the big stage that a bowl game provides, and this year should be no different.
There are a ton of exciting playmakers who will be competing during this year’s bowl season, but here’s a look at three that you should definitely keep an eye on.
QB Robert Griffin III, Baylor
Robert Griffin III has taken the college football world by storm in 2011, and he’s absolutely been the most electric player in the country this year, as he’s totaled 4,657 yards of offense and scored 45 touchdowns.
Griffin isn’t just you’re average dual-threat quarterback, as he’s got the type of arm strength that can really light up a defense.
Look for the star signal-caller to continue his tremendous campaign in a big way against Washington in the Alamo Bowl.
RB LaMichael James, Oregon
Now that LaMichael James is back to being fully healthy, he’s once again one of the most dangerous and explosive running backs in college football.
Even though he missed two games due to injury this year, James still managed to rush for 1,646 yards and score 19 touchdowns.
Wisconsin’s defense has been a little soft against the run this season, giving up an average of 3.91 yards per carry, and there definitely should be room for James to do some damage.
WR T.Y. Hilton, Florida International
I cant imagine that a lot of people are super-psyched for the Beef ‘O’Brady’s Bowl between Marshall and Florida International, but there is one reason to tune in and that’s FIU WR T.Y. Hilton.
Hilton hasn’t exactly received a ton of national publicity this year, but make no mistake about it, he’s one of the fastest and most electrifying players in college football.
The 5’10’’, 180-pound senior caught 64 passes for 950 yards and scored eight touchdowns this season, and he’s definitely the type of offensive weapon that could cause trouble for a Marshall defense that ranks 100th in the country in pass defense.
