Kent State’s star player Dri Archer has been day-to-day since suffering a left ankle sprain in the Golden Flashes’ opening drive of the season. Everyone wondered whether Dri Archer would be returning against the non-conference. No. 8 LSU Stephanie Storm of the Akron Beacon Journal explains the positives and negatives of Archer’s missing another game. This advance caught my attention because it highlighted how Archer could benefit from taking another week off, rather than just pleading for his return.
Brian Rosenthal’s piece about the UCLA-Nebraska game did a great job of finding a matchup (OLB Anthony Barr and QB Taylor Martinez) and really analyzing it. UCLA’s Barr seemed to be the biggest threat for the first to sack Martinez this season. In the end, Martinez ended up being sacked twice on Saturday, neither by Barr.
