Kent State's Dri Archer is the best player in college football who many people simply haven't heard of or watched. His talents will be on display Sunday against Arkansas State in the GoDaddy.com Bowl.

"When you watch him, you say to yourself, 'Wow,'" said Arkansas State interim head coach John Thompson.

Rarely does a single player demand complete attention while watching a game, but Archer's talent won't be overshadowed when he takes the field at Ladd Peebles Stadium. Archer was named a 2012 Walter Camp All-American as a first-team kick returner. He was one of four members named to the team who didn't play for schools from BCS automatic-qualifying conferences. And Kent State will make sure he gets enough touches during the GoDaddy.com Bowl.
