Fans cannot get enough of these two young talents. Not only have they emerged and set the gridiron on fire, but established themselves as forces to be reckoned with. They are so prepared to make it in the big leagues that many NFL teams are already considering bringing these generational talents on board.

However, the recent clash between Ole Miss Rebels and Liberty Flames displayed which quarterback is superior. While they aren’t on the level of a Tom Brady-Drew Brees or Brady-Eli Manning rivalry, there’s still a ton of bad blood. On this occasion, Matt Corral outperformed Malik Willis.

Every college football fan expected Malik Willis to trounce Matt Corral, but Ole Miss Rebels showed real heart. Twitter could not contain its excitement as fans refused to stop tweeting about the game. Athletes like these prove why college football deserved such widespread coverage in the United States.
