As the college football season begins tonight, there are many familiar faces that span across 17 different college football teams. Many are looking for breakout seasons, some for awards, and some for bowl victories. Let’s take a look at some of Tiger Tech that has brought their talent to the College Football world. And as they say, “Once a Tiger, Always a Tiger.”

Arkansas Razorbacks
96 Karl Roesler – DL

Sept. 3 vs. Louisiana Tech – 4:01 P.M. – SEC Network

As a redshirt sophomore, Roesler played in all 13 games, tallying 15 tackles, including 3.0 for a loss, and one sack. Roesler was recently named a defensive starter, and is looking for a breakout season after two years of contribution.

Centre Colonels
23 Ryan Askin – DB
88 Sam Gray – TE
96 Ben Logsdon – K/P
59 Kyle Oliver – LB
30 Connor Barnes – LB
1 Michael Ackerman – WR
65 Lowell Brown – OL
21 Jaylon Hibbs – WR
85 Davis Kannapell – TE

Sept. 3 vs. Hanover – 7:30 PM

“Tiger Tech University”, otherwise known as Centre, will look to win their conference title and make a return to the DIII Football Playoffs. The Colonels finished last year with an 8-2 record.

Cincinnati Bearcats
77 John Kurtz – OL

Sept. 1 vs. UT Martin – 7:00 PM – ESPN3

Might be intriguing to keep tabs on Cincinnati’s QB rotation, and see how Desmond Ridder will fit in the offensive system.

Colorado State Rams
12 Deonte Clyburn – LB

Sept. 2 vs. Colorado – 8:00 PM – ESPN

Clyburn started the final seven games of his junior season after being plugged in at Linebacker during the Air Force game. He record 69 tackles on the season, including 7.0 for a loss. Unfortunately, Clyburn is likely to miss the season due to a complication with blood clots. He will be able to return for his senior season in 2017 since he played as a true freshman in 2013.

Dayton Flyers
47 Andrew McCormick – LB

Sept. 3 vs. Central State – 7:00 PM

As a redshirt freshman, McCormick played in nine games, tallying three tackles. Member of the 2015 PFL Academic Honor Roll.

Eastern Illinois Panthers
67 Austin Askin – OL

Sept. 1 at Western Illinois – 7:00 PM

Started all 12 games at left guard. Part of a unit that ranked 5th in the NCAA for fewest sacks allowed. Ended the final eight games of the season without a sack.

Eastern Kentucky University 
47 Logan Butler – LB

Sept. 3 at Purdue – 12:00 PM

After a stellar senior season at St.X, Butler will look to be an early contributor for EKU.

Florida Gators
30 Garrett Stephens – DB

Sept. 3 vs. UMASS – 7:30 PM – SEC Network

After being awarded a scholarship last year for his special teams and scout teams contributions, Stephens saw action in four games last year. He was also named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll.

88 Zach Frizzell – SE

Sept. 3 vs. Thomas More – 6:00 PM

Indianapolis Greyhounds

16 Brad Schickel – K

Sept. 3 at Hillsdale – 7:00 PM

Had a breakout sophomore campaign, becoming the first UIndy kicker ever to score 100 points in a season … named to the preseason watch list for the 2016 Fred Mitchell Award, an honor giving annually to the collegiate place kicker that shows excellence both on the football field and in the community.

John Carroll University 
A.J. Breit – QB

Sept. 3 at University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh – 2:00 PM

Kentucky Wildcats
88 Charles Walker – WR
37 Spencer Foy – LB

Sept. 3 vs. Southern Miss – 7:30 PM – ESPNU

As many know, Charles Walker was awarded an athletic scholarship in recognition for his hard work and attitude on and off the field. He has played in every single game since coming to Kentucky, mostly contributing on Special Teams (named punt returner this year). However, Walker had five catches for 61 yards last year and he looks to expand his offensive role this year. During the spring and training camp, he mostly played with the second group, and occasionally rotated in the first group.

Morehead State Eagles
15 Austin Gahafer – QB
30 Malik Carr- LB
75 C.J. Phillips – OL

Sept. 5 at James Madison – 6:00 PM

Gahafer had a stellar junior season, as he passed for over 3,200 yards and passed for 24 touchdowns.
