Hello, Justin Berendzen from Draft Diamonds (@jrberendzen on Twitter) with my top 5 FCS matchups of week 5.

University of Richmond at Elon University

Huge matchup of ranked teams. Elon has redshirt freshman running back Jalen Hampton who has 323 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns this season. Defensively for the Spiders they have sophomore defensive back Bryson Parker who has 19 tackles, 2 PBUs and 1 interception in 2022. Redshirt sophomore Jasiah Williams has 282 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns for Richmond. For the Phoenix defense they have senior linebacker Marcus Hillman who has 31 tackles and 7 TFLs in 2022.

Samford University at Furman University

The Bulldogs and Paladins get together in this one. Furman’s offense has 5th year tight end Ryan Miller who has 313 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns in 2022. Defensively for the Bulldogs they have grad linebacker Nathan East who has 17 tackles, 2 TFLs and 1 interception this season. The Samford offense has senior wide receiver Chandler Smith who has 263 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns in 2022. For the Paladins defense they have sophomore defensive back Dominic Morris who has 10 tackles, 4 PBUs and 2 interceptions this season.

College of the Holy Cross at Harvard University

This could be a fun matchup. Harvard’s offense has senior running back Aidan Borguet who has 258 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns in Harvard’s first 2 games. Defensively for the Crusaders they have senior linebacker Liam Anderson who has 27 tackles, 6 TFLs and 2 sacks this season. The Holy Cross offense has junior wide receiver Jalen Coker who has 351 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns in 2022. Defensively for the Crimson they have junior defensive lineman Thor Griffith who has 14 tackles, 4 TFLs and 2 sacks this season.

University of Tennessee-Chattanooga at East Tennessee State University

This based on recent history could be a really interesting game. The Buccaneers offense has senior running back Jacob Saylors who has 467 rushing yards and 6 touchdowns this season. Defensively for the Mocs they have senior linebacker Ty Boeck who has 31 tackles and 2 TFLs in 2022. Chattanooga’s offense has junior running back Ailym Ford who has 423 rushing yards and 4 touchdowns this season. Defensively for East Tennessee State they have redshirt sophomore defensive back Alijah Huzzie who has 26 tackles and 8 PBUs in 2022.

Stephen F. Austin State University at Sam Houston State University

Now I think this is an under the radar matchup because Sam Houston hasn’t played well but they have talent. The Bearkats offense has redshirt freshman running back Zach Hrbacek who has 135 rushing yards and 1 touchdown in 2022. Defensively for SFA they have senior defensive back Myles Heard who has 28 tackles and 1 interception this season. Xavier Gipson senior wide receiver leads the Lumberjacks offense with 234 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns in 2022. Sam Houston State’s defense has redshirt junior defensive back Jordan Morris who has 10 tackles and 1 interception this season.
