Reese Poffenbarger QB vs. Brayden Schager QB
UAlbany’s Reese Poffenbarger has exhibited promise despite the team’s inconsistent run. With 45 completions from 78 attempts, he has totaled 447 passing yards and an admirable five touchdowns. His completion percentage stands at 57.7, but most worryingly, he’s been sacked seven times for a loss of 50 yards. This indicates possible protection issues in the pocket. His passer rating of 127 is decent but leaves room for improvement.
In contrast, Hawai’i’s Brayden Schager comes off as the more accomplished quarterback at this point. With 57 completions from 88 attempts, he has amassed a whopping 706 passing yards. His completion percentage of 64.8 is notably higher than Poffenbarger’s, and he boasts six passing touchdowns to his name. The two interceptions and nine sacks suffered speak to some challenges, but a passer rating of 150.1 reflects a strong performance thus far.
