College Football Game Previews: Week 10

Notre Dame vs. Clemson; Saturday, Nov. 4, 12:00 PM ET ABC

The Prospects:

Notre Dame

  • LT Joe Alt, No. 76
  • LB Marist Liufau, No. 8
  • QB Sam Hartman, No. 10
  • RB Auric Estimé, No. 7
  • DE Javontae Jean-Baptiste, No. 1
  • DT Howard Cross III, No. 56
  • CB Cam Hart, No. 5


  • CB Nate Wiggins, No. 2
  • LB Barrett Carter, No. 00
  • LB Jeremiah Trotter Jr., No. 54
  • DT Ruke Orhorhoro, No. 33
  • DT Tyler Davis, No. 13
  • S Andrew Mukuba, No. 1
  • QB Cade Klubnik, No. 2
  • RB Will Shipley, No. 1
  • WR Beaux Collins, No. 80
  • G Walker Parks, No. 64

The Matchups: This an excellent game for viewing some future NFL linebackers. Liufau is the best of the group, and he is having a fantastic season. Liufau is going to see a very dangerous back in Shipley. Similarly, the Clemson duo of Carter and Trotter will be challenged by Estimé. Alt is the top prospect from either team, and he could turn out as a top-20 pick next April in the 2024 NFL Draft. Orhorhoro and Wiggins, meanwhile, are also early-round prospects.

Kansas State vs. Texas; Saturday, Nov. 4, 12:00 PM ET FOX

The Prospects:

Kansas State

  • LT K.T. Leveston, No. 70
  • G Cooper Beebe, No. 50
  • QB Will Howard, No. 18
  • DE Khalid Duke, No. 18


  • WR Xavier Worthy, No. 1
  • QB Quinn Ewers, No. 3
  • WR Adonai Mitchell, No. 5
  • WR Jordan Whittington, No. 13
  • TE Ja’Tavion Sanders, No. 0
  • RB Keilan Robinson, No. 7
  • DT T’Vondre Sweat, No. 93
  • DT Jaylan Ford, No. 41

The Matchups: There is a good draft matchup in this game with Sweat going against Beebe and Leveston. Both Beebe and Sweat had some more impressive tape in 2022, so they need to play well to close out this season.

Washington vs. USC; Saturday, Nov. 4, 7:30 PM ET ABC

The Prospects:


  • QB Michael Penix Jr., No. 9
  • DE Bralen Trice, No. 8
  • OLB Zion Tupuolo-Fetui, No. 4
  • WR Rome Odunze, No. 1
  • WR Ja’Lynn Polk, No. 2
  • WR Jalen McMillan, No. 11
  • TE Devin Culp, No. 83


  • QB Caleb Williams, No. 13
  • LT Jonah Monheim, No. 79
  • S Calen Bullock, No. 7

The Matchups: Williams has had a few ugly games in recent weeks, while Penix has been prolific. However, both players need to play well to close out the season to help avoid any nitpicking and lowering of draft grades. Trice has been quiet this year and needs a good game in terms of getting to Williams with good rushes versus the USC tackles, like Monheim.

LSU vs. Alabama; Saturday, Nov. 4, 7:45 PM ET CBS

The Prospects:


  • WR Malik Nabers, No. 8
  • WR Karen Lacy, No. 2
  • QB Jayden Daniels, No. 5
  • RB Josh Williams, No. 27
  • DT Maason Smith, No. 0
  • CB Sage Ryan, No. 15
  • S Greg Brooks, No. 3
  • LB Omar Speights, No. 1
  • DE Sai’vion Jones, No. 35
  • DE Jordan Jefferson, No. 99


  • RT J.C. Latham, No. 65
  • LB Dallas Turner, No. 15
  • CB Kool-Aid McKinstry, No. 1
  • CB Terrion Arnold, No. 3
  • LB Chris Braswell, No. 41
  • DT Justin Edoigbe, No. 92
  • WR Jermaine Burton, No. 3
  • WR Ja’Corey Brooks, No. 7
  • C Seth McLaughlin, No. 56
  • RB Josh Williams, No. 27
  • QB Jalen Milroe, No. 4
  • RB Jase McClellan, No. 2
  • S Malachi Moore, No. 13

The Matchups: There are many great draft matchups in this game, including Nabers taking on McKinstry and Arnold. Nabers will be a tough test for the Crimson Tide cornerbacks. Daniels needs a good game against Alabama to help his draft grade. Latham is going to see a tough test taking on LSU edge rusher Harold Perkins, who is a 2025 NFL Draft prospect.
