While Week 5 may not have delivered the same level of excitement as Week 4, it still brought us a series of thrilling college football matchups on Saturday.

The noon slate kicked off with Colorado’s valiant but ultimately unsuccessful comeback attempt against a leaky USC defense, Penn State’s sluggish start against Northwestern, Kentucky’s dominant win over Florida, and Texas A&M’s defense rising to the occasion against Arkansas.

The midday slate nearly witnessed a shocking Georgia upset at the hands of Auburn, while Michigan and Texas both cruised to impressive victories. However, it was the night slate that stole the show with a high-scoring 55-49 showdown between Ole Miss and LSU, a last-minute victory for Notre Dame against Duke, and a defensive battle between Iowa and Michigan State. Let’s dive into this week’s stock report.

Stock Up

Brock Bowers, Tight End, Georgia Bulldogs

Georgia’s star tight end proved to be unstoppable in their late road victory over Auburn. Bowers recorded eight receptions for 157 yards and a touchdown, with a remarkable 121 yards coming in the crucial fourth quarter.

Auburn had no answers for this dynamic tight end, who seemed to single-handedly keep the Bulldogs in the game (no pun intended, as he made several one-handed catches on Saturday). Bowers is emerging as a surefire top-10 NFL Draft pick and a potential face of the back-to-back champions.

Sam Hartman, Quarterback, Notre Dame

While Sam Hartman may not boast the flashiest quarterback skills in college football, his recent performance demonstrated elite leadership and resilience in a gritty road victory, following a similarly hard-fought loss to Ohio State just one week prior.

The defining moment of the game occurred during the game-winning drive when Hartman, facing a daunting fourth and 16, scrambled for a crucial first down. Beyond orchestrating the Irish to a season-saving victory, Hartman exhibited sportsmanship by waiting outside the medical tent after the game, ensuring that Duke quarterback Riley Leonard, who suffered a challenging injury on the final play of the game, was alright.

Ray Davis, Running Back, Kentucky

Ray Davis, the 5-10, 216-pound powerhouse, has operated under the radar throughout his college football career. After accumulating over 1,000 rushing yards at Vanderbilt last season, Davis transferred to Kentucky for his fifth year of college football.

In a spectacular performance during Saturday’s significant triumph over Florida, Davis carried the ball 26 times for a remarkable 280 yards and notched three touchdowns. He further contributed with a nine-yard touchdown reception, showcasing his complete dominance in the game.

With the Wildcats boasting an undefeated 5-0 record heading into next week’s clash against Georgia, Davis has catapulted himself onto the national radar, and his stock is soaring as a result.
