Start vs. Sit: Players to Start, Players to Bench for Week 13

This article is part of our Start vs. Sit series.

Welcome to Thanksgiving week for college football! While the holiday itself has been ceded to the NFL, there's plenty of action on Friday and Saturday. In fact, Week 13 technically stretches to Tuesday, when Charlotte and Western Kentucky play at 10:30 a.m. ET. It's been a strange season, but I don't need to tell you that. Hey, on the plus side, I can finally include the MAC in this week's Start vs. Sit article. So let's get to it!

AAC

START

Otis Anderson, RB, UCF at South Florida

The Golden Knights have a potent offense, but quarterback Dillon Gabriel is (rightfully) the one who gets the bulk of the attention. Don't completely overlook Central Florida's run game, though. Anderson has rushed for 614 yards and four touchdowns, but this matchup could be really good for him. South Florida has allowed 42.1 points per game to FBS teams, and they have also allowed 208.8 yards per game on the ground. Anderson should be able to gash this defense.

SIT

Jadan Blue, WR, Temple vs. Cincinnati

With the defenses in the AAC, this has really become about recommending benching somebody playing Cincinnati. The Bearcats have allowed 15 points per game, and that's true even though they just played on the road against UCF. This will be an easier matchup for Cincy than that was, especially due to all the health issues Temple is facing. Technically, Blue is part of that. He has 41 catches for 371 yards and five touchdowns
