It’s a big night for two athletic quarterbacks. One is a high profile, sure fire first round pick next April. The other has posted very similar stats, leads his team equally well but hasn’t received the same level of hype.
Cam Newton (QB, Auburn) and Colin Kaepernick (Nevada) are both big time playmakers who feature heavily as runners as well as passers. Tonight Newton faces rival Alabama hoping to maintain Auburn’s unbeaten season and go into the SEC Championship game knowing victory will certainly secure a BCS title game.
Kaepernick is hoping to knock Boise State off their perch with a big upset win. I haven’t had the opportunity to watch Nevada this year, but this is the type of high profile encounter he has to perform in to boost his draft stock.
I’m still in Asia and won’t be back until 6th December. I’m hoping to catch the ‘Bama vs Auburn game via a live stream. The internet in the hotel is patchy at best so this might be slightly optimistic. However, I have both games set to record so when I get home I’ll be able to review both quarterbacks performances.
