Four players make upward movement after stellar performances this past week; and there is a new entry into the NUC Sports Top Ten Watch List.

Last year’s winner Cooper Kupp of Eastern Washington had a very productive game in the Eagles 35-16 win over Montana. Kupp caught eight passes for 140 yards and three touchdowns while completing one pass for 54 yards. He enters at #7 despite having missed one contest this year.

Sam Houston State signal caller Jeremiah Briscoe moves up one spot to #2 as the Bearkats remain unbeaten at (8-0). Briscoe completed 19 of 26 passes for 325 yards and five touchdowns in his short stint versus overmatched Texas Southern.

All-purpose back Tarik Cohen of North Carolina A&T moves up two spots to #4. Cohen carried the ball 17 times for 145 yards and three scores while catching three passes for 65 yards. His effort allowed the Aggies to knock off FAMU 42-17.

Also moving up two spots is Samford signal caller Delvin Hodges. This past week versus Mississippi State he completed 42 of 69 passes for 468 yards and four touchdowns versus three picks.

Making the biggest jump is senior wide out Karel Hamilton of Samford. Despite the loss against a SEC opponent Hamilton was still able to shine hauling 14 passes for 213 yards and two scores. He moves up four spots to #6.  Hamilton has also put up eye popping numbers despite missing one game.

This list will be updated weekly with current stats and statistical rankings.
