College football is back!

As the 2022 season rolls along, so will our weekly previews of games and NFL prospects to watch. This will come in addition to our sporadic NFL Draft coverage over the course of the fall and winter. Whether you’re a fan of the draft or just a college football fan, this series looks to give you an idea of what to watch each week.

Windy City Gridiron’s Lead Draft Analyst Jacob Infante will be taking a look at what to expect in Week 12 of this year’s college football campaign.

Game of the Week

Jacob: No. 2 Ohio State vs. No. 3 Michigan, Saturday Nov. 26, 11:00 a.m. CST

Big Matchup to Watch

Jacob: Texas Tech EDGE Tyree Wilson vs. Oklahoma, Saturday Nov. 19, 6:30 p.m. CST

Sleeper Highlight

Jacob: Jackson State WR Dallas Daniels vs. Alcorn State, Saturday Nov. 26, 11:00 a.m. CST

Whether it be at Jackson State or Western Illinois, Dallas Daniels has been a difference maker at the collegiate level.

A lanky wide receiver at 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds, what really stands out about Daniels is his shiftiness as a route runner. He understands the nuances of different releases and blends his assignments well in his stems. He also has solid explosiveness coming out of his breaks, and his body control in tracking down lobs and making sideline catches stands out on tape. He’s not overly physical at the catch point or against press coverage, but he projects well as a potential backup at the next level.

Daniels recently accepted an invitation to the Shrine Bowl, but the rest of his season will be crucial for him to continue to build momentum heading into the all-star circuit. Jackson State has just Alcorn State in its path before finishing with an 11-0 undefeated regular season, and Daniels’ presence on offense will be crucial for them to move the ball down the field.
