College football fans can enjoy a jam-packed weekend of spring scrimmages with some of the most exciting teams in the nation going head-to-head on Saturday, April 15. While spring games may not predict a team’s potential during the fall season, they can offer some enticing clues.
Kicking off the action, the Texas Longhorns and Tennessee Volunteers will introduce their top-ranked recruits of the season, Nico Iamaleava and Arch Manning, respectively. No. 1 and No. 3 overall, both five-star quarterbacks will bring their hype to the field.
Clemson and Texas A&M will display their offensive coordinator changes this season. Clemson’s underperformed on offense last season but hopes to return to the College Football Playoff. At the same time, Texas A&M partners with Bobby Petrino to guide their offense.
USC is expected to win the Pac-12 in 2023, but the program has yet to address its weakness in defense, which will be scrutinized on Saturday.
In Pennsylvania, the Penn State Nittany Lions will showcase Drew Allar, their 5-star quarterback. They hold one of the top 1-2 punches at tailback, and if Allar delivers, James Franklin’s team has a shot at the Big Ten.
Georgia, Ohio State, and Ole Miss have their quarterbacks battled down to two hopefuls vying for a starting position. Georgia’s QB1 position comes down to Brock Vandargriff and Carson Beck, and Ohio State’s head coach, Ryan Day, has been unable to separate Kyle McCord and Devin Brown. Meanwhile, Ole Miss keeps fans guessing with Jaxson Dart clinging to his starting spot amid transfers Spencer Sanders and Walker Howard.
Finally, Kenny Dillingham’s Arizona State Sun Devils remain the wildcard, with a game time yet to be announced. Dillingham has scrubbed the roster, bringing in over 45 new faces. With five quarterbacks fighting for the starting position, fans can look forward to an exhilarating game.
