This article is part of our Start vs. Sit series.
A lot of people feel like the start of November is when college football really kicks things up to the next level. Will that be the case? This is the first week of football in November, and also the first week of MACtion. That means a few MAC teams have already played by the time you are reading this. Fortunately, there are still plenty of players I can get into for this edition of Start vs. Sit. Let's start November off right.
Ryan O'Keefe, WR, UCF vs. Tulane
With Jaylon Robinson dealing with injury (he's questionable again this week), O'Keefe has stepped up. Over the last four games he has 29 receptions for 246 yards and three touchdowns. He's also rushed for 118 yards and a touchdown as well. Whether or not Robinson plays, O'Keefe should do well in this matchup. Tulane has allowed 43.9 points and 306.3 passing yards per game.
Josh Johnson, WR, Tulsa at Cincinnati
Johnson, like O'Keefe, was excelling because his team's top receiver (Keylon Stokes in this case) was out. However, last week Johnson was held to two catches for 18 yards. Was that because Navy shortens a game with all its rushing the ball? Perhaps, but it's still a concern heading into an even tougher matchup. Cincinnati is in the top four in both points and passing yards allowed per contest.
Taysir Mack, WR, Pitt at Duke
