Indiana vs. Michigan State; Saturday, Nov. 14, 12:00 PM ET ABC

The Prospects:
  • Michigan State DT Naquan Jones, No.93
  • Michigan State C Matt Allen, No.64

  • Indiana WR Whop Philyor, No. 77
The Matchups: The Spartans have fielded a tough secondary over the years, so Philyor could see some quality defensive backs. The Hooisers have played really well this year. Unfortunately Indiana’s top prospect, safety Marcelino Ball, is out for the year with a torn ACL.

Notre Dame vs. Boston College; Saturday, Nov. 14, 3:30 PM ET ABC

The Prospects:
  • Notre Dame OT Liam Eichenberg, No.74
  • Notre Dame G Tommy Kraemer, No.78
  • Notre Dame OLB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, No.6
  • Notre Dame OLB Daelin Hayes, No.9
  • Notre Dame DE Adetokunbo Ogundeji, No.91
  • Notre Dame QB Ian Book, No.12

  • Boston College LT Zion Johnson, No. 77
  • Boston College C Alec Linstrom, No. 72
The Matchups: Notre Dame has a tough defensive line that will be a good test for Boston College’s offensive line tandem. Owusu-Koramoah should be challenged by the the Eagles’ rushing attack, and this will be a good game to see how the undersized linebacker handles taking on and shedding blocks.

Arkansas vs. Florida; Saturday, Nov. 14, 7:00 PM ET ESPN

The Prospects:
  • Arkansas QB Feleipe Franks, No. 11

  • Florida QB Kyle Trask, No. 11
  • Florida TE Kyle Pitts, No. 84
  • Florida WR Kadarius Toney, No. 1
  • Florida WR Jacob Copeland, No. 15
  • Florida WR Trevon Grimes, No. 8
  • Florida LT Stone Forsythe, No. 72
  • Florida DE Brenton Cox, No. 1
  • Florida DT Tedarrell Slaton, No. 56
  • Florida LB Ventrell Miller, No. 51
  • Florida S Shawn Davis, No. 6
The Matchups: Two former teammates will be going head-to-head with Trask and Franks. Arkansas has played tough footall this year, but the Gators’ offense is special. Florida’s defense has struggled this year, so Franks needs to produce a good game to help his hopes of getting drafted.

Wisconsin vs. Michigan; Saturday, Nov. 14, 7:30 PM ET ABC

The Prospects:
  • Michigan WR Nico Collins, No. 4
  • Michigan OT Jalen Mayfield, No. 73
  • Michigan DL Kwity Paye, No. 19
  • Michigan DL Aidan Hutchison, No. 97
  • Michigan S Brad Hawkins, No. 20

  • Wisconsin DE Isaiahh Loudermilk, No. 99
The Matchups: Even though the Badgers don’t have top offensive line prospects for the 2021 NFL Draft, the program is always reliable to produce a good line and should provide one of the tougher tests that Hutchinson and Paye will see this season. Loudermilk flashed some potential early in his career before disappointing the past few years. He could use a good game against Mayfield to help his draft stock.
