Three of the top four tackles in college football will be on the same field when Kentucky hosts New Mexico State on Saturday. You've probably heard that UK's Jordan Jones is ranked third nationally, but the Aggies' have two of their own at the top of the list, including No. 1, Rodney Butler. Butler has an astounding 39 tackles in two games so far this season.
Rank Player Tackles
1 Rodney Butler, New Mexico State 39
2 Nate Holley, Kent State 30
3 Jordan Jones, Kentucky 28
4 Terrill Hanks, New Mexico State 26
5 Trenton Greene, Bowling Green 25
Maybe stay away from those two linebackers as they seem to do all of the tackling for their team. Go Cats.
