Both Maxwell Smith and Jalen Whitlow played at quarterback in 2013 at Mississippi State. Both players have since moved on since the 2013 season and are starting for new programs. San Diego State’s Max Smith went 6/10 for 93 yards and a touchdown while also running for a score. Following several bad starts, Smith has completed 69 percent of his passes and thrown three touchdowns and no interceptions in his last three games. SDSU is now 5-3 and 4-0 in conference play.

Jalen Whitlow and Eastern Illinois will square off against Tennessee Tech at 2 E.T. Whitlow has flipped the switch over the last three games. The Panthers have won their last three games in large part due to Whitlow’s arm. He threw for over 260 yards against Southeast Missouri and Austin Peay before leading EIU to an overtime win over Tennessee State last week.
Josh Clemons will take the field at 5 E.T. for Jacksonville State. He has run for 359 yards on 61 carries for the Gamecocks. JVSU takes on Austin Peay today and EIU in two weeks.
