Game Recap Analysis

Arkansas at Georgia; Saturday, Oct. 2, 12:00 PM ET ESPN

The Prospects:
    Arkansas
  • WR Treylon Burks, No. 16
  • OT Myron Cunningham, No. 76
  • CB Montaric Brown, No. 21
  • LB Bumper Pool, No. 10
  • FS Joe Foucha, No. 7
  • LB Grant Morgan, No. 31
  • RT Dalton Wagner, No. 78
  • WR De'Vion Warren, No. 10
  • TE Blake Kern, No. 87
  • RB Tre'lon Smith, No. 22
  • G Ty Clary, No. 66

    Georgia
  • OLB Adam Anderson, No. 19
  • DT Jordan Davis, 99
  • DE Travon Walker, No. 44
  • LB Nakobe Dean, No. 17
  • FS Christopher Smith, No. 29
  • RB Zamir White, No. 3
  • RB James Cook, No. 4
  • DT Devonte Wyatt, No. 95
  • LB Quay Walker, No. 7
  • G Jamaree Salyer, No. 69
  • P Jake Camarda, No. 90
  • G Justin Shaffer, No. 54
  • DT Julian Rochester, No. 92
  • CB Derion Kendrick, No. 11
  • QB J.T. Daniels, No. 18


The Matchups: There is a good draft matchup with Razorbacks wide receiver Treylon Burks taking on Bulldogs cornerback Derion Kendrick. Burks was excellent against Texas A&M, and Kendrick has had some issues with top receivers. Arkansas has a tough rushing attack, but the Georgia front seven is loaded with NFL talent. Anderson, Davis, and Walker could be first-round picks next April in the 2022 NFL Draft.



Game Recap Analysis

Michigan at Wisconsin; Saturday, Oct. 2, 12:00 PM ET FOX

The Prospects:
    Michigan
  • DE Aidan Hutchinson, No. 97
  • SS Brad Hawkins, No. 2
  • OLB Joshua Ross, No. 12
  • OT Andrew Stueber, No. 71
  • P Brad Robbins, No. 91
  • NT Donovan Jeter, 95

    Wisconsin
  • TE Jake Ferguson, No. 84
  • G Logan Bruss, No. 60
  • LB Jack Sunburn, No. 57
  • SS Scott Nelson, No. 9
  • OT Tyler Beach, No. 65
  • WR Danny Davis, No. 7
  • WR Keith Pryor, No. 3
  • CB Faion Hicks, No. 1
  • WR Jack Dunn, No. 16
  • CB Ceasar Williams, No. 21


The Matchups: Wisconsin does not have as good of an offensive line as has been their standard in recent years, but it will still be interesting to see how Aidan Hutchinson performs against the Badgers. The rushing attack will be a challenge for Hutchinson and linebacker Josh Ross.



Game Recap Analysis

Ole Miss at Alabama; Saturday, Oct. 2, 3:30 PM ET SEC

The Prospects:
    Ole Miss
  • QB Matt Corral, No. 2
  • OLB Sam Williams, No. 7
  • LB Lakia Henry, No. 0
  • DE Tariqious Tisdale, No. 22
  • CB Keidron Smith, No. 20
  • C/G Ben Brown, No. 55
  • FS Jaylon Jones, No. 31
  • CB Deane Leonard, No. 24
  • WR Dontario Drummond, No. 11
  • LB Mohamed Sanogo, No. 46
  • SS Jacob Springer, No. 1
  • WR Braylon Sanders, No. 13

    Alabama
  • OT Evan Neal, No. 73
  • CB Josh Jobe, No. 28
  • CB Jalyn Armour-Davis, No. 22
  • WR John Metchie III, No. 8
  • WR Jameson Williams, No. 1
  • TE Cameron Latu, No. 81
  • LB Henry To'oTo'o, No. 10
  • DT Phidarian Mathis, No. 48
  • DT LaBryan Ray, No. 18
  • DT D.J. Dale, No. 94
  • LB Christian Harris, No. 8
  • FS Daniel Wright, No. 3
  • RB Brian Robinson, No. 4
  • C Christopher Owens, No. 79


The Matchups: Rebels quarterback Matt Corral could be the best quarterback prospect for the 2022 NFL Draft, and if he plays well against the Crimson Tide, that could really help his draft stock. Alabama left tackle Evan Neal had a mixed game against Florida, and he will see a nice rusher with Ole Miss outside linebacker Sam Williams. Rebels wide receiver Dontario Drummond will also be a good test for Crimson Tide cornerbacks Josh Jobe and Jalyn Armour-Davis.



Game Recap Analysis

Cincinnati at Notre Dame; Saturday, Oct. 2, 2:30 PM ET NBC

The Prospects:
    Cincinnati
  • QB Desmond Ridder, No. 9
  • WR Alec Pierce, No. 12
  • DE Myjai Sanders, No. 21
  • CB Coby Bryant, No. 7

    Notre Dame
  • SS Kyle Hamilton, No. 14
  • DT Myron Tavovailoa-Amosa, No. 95
  • QB Jack Coan, No. 17
  • LB Shayne Simon, No. 33
  • DT Jayson Ademilola, No. 57
  • FS Houston Griffith, No. 3
  • LB Drew White, No. 40
  • CB Tariq Bracy, No. 28
  • K Jonathan Doerer, No. 39
  • WR Avery Davis, No. 3


The Matchups: Desmond Ridder could be a mid-round prospect for the 2022 NFL Draft, and he will see a tough Fighting Irish defense led by the best safety in the nation, Kyle Hamilton. If Ridder and wide receiver Alec Pierce get the better of Hamilton, that could really help their draft grades.



Game Recap Analysis

Florida at Kentucky; Saturday, Oct. 2, 6:00 PM ET ESPN

The Prospects:
    Florida
  • CB Kaiir Elam, No. 5
  • OLB Brenton Cox Jr., No. 1
  • DT Zachary Carter, No. 6
  • LB Ventrell Miller, No. 51
  • RB Malik Davis, No. 20
  • OLB Jeremiah Moon, No. 7
  • DT Daquan "Red" Newkirk, No. 44
  • SS Trey Dean, No. 00
  • RB Dameon Pierce, No. 27
  • DT Antonio Valentino, No. 55
  • OT Jean Delance, No. 56
  • G Stewart Reese, No. 51
  • WR Jacob Copeland, No. 1
  • WR Justin Shorter, No. 4
  • TE Kemore Gamble, No. 2

    Kentucky
  • OT Darian Kinnard, No. 70
  • QB Will Levis, No. 7
  • DE Joshua Pascal, No. 4
  • RB Chris Rodriguez, No. 24
  • FS Yusuf Corker, No. 29
  • NT Marquan McCall
  • G Luke Fortner, No. 79
  • WR Josh Ali, No. 6
  • LB DeAndre Square, No. 5
  • TE Justin Rigg, No. 83
  • OLB Jordan Wright, No. 15


The Matchups: This game has some really good matchups. Wildcats right tackle Darian Kinnard could be the best draft prospect on either team, and he will see some early-round defensive linemen in Florida's Brenton Cox and Zach Carter. Kaiir Elam is playing really well for the Gators this year, and he's going to see a good test with Kentucky wide receiver Josh Ali and Penn State transfer quarterback Will Levis. Levis can push the ball downfield, and speed is the one big concern with Elam.
