The opening Saturday of bowl season may not feature college football’s marquee teams, but it certainly does include some of the nation’s marquee talent.
The prime game on the schedule is the Las Vegas Bowl, which kicks off between two ranked teams, No. 20 Fresno State and No. 25 USC, at 3:30 p.m. ET on ABC. To find out more about the top NFL draft prospects playing in the game, including arguably the nation’s top senior quarterback prospect in Fresno State’s Derek Carr and two of college football’s best wide receivers in Fresno State redshirt sophomore Davante Adams and USC junior Marqise Lee, check out Joe Marino’s Prospect Preview of the game.
Saturday’s other three bowl games also each include players whose names should be called in the 2014 NFL draft.
