Game Recap Analysis

Auburn at Arkansas; Saturday, Oct. 16, 12:00 PM ET SECN

The Prospects:
    Auburn
  • CB Roger McCreary, No. 23
  • FS Smoke Monday, No. 21
  • LB Zakoby McClain, No. 9
  • RB Shaun Shivers, No. No. 4
  • C Nick Brahms, No. 52
  • G Brandon Council, No. 71
  • K Anders Carlson, No. 26
  • G Tashawn Manning, No. 56
  • OT Brodarious Hamm, No. 59

    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


The Matchups: There is a good matchup in this game with Burks taking on McCreary. Both players could be off the board in the first two rounds of the 2022 NFL Draft, and Burks could help himself if he can show the ability to separate from McCreary. Auburn linebacker Zakoby McClain will see a tough rushing test from Arkansas.



Game Recap Analysis

Pittsburgh at Virginia Tech; Saturday, Oct. 16, 3:30 PM ET ESPN2

The Prospects:
    Pittsburgh
  • QB Kenny Pickett, No. 8
  • LT Carter Warren, No. 77
  • CB Damarri Mathis, No. 21
  • DE Deslin Alexandre, No. 5
  • WR Taysir Mack, No. 11
  • LB Cameron Bright, No. 38
  • RT Gabriel Houy, No. 57

    Virginia Tech
  • DE Amaré Barno, No. 11
  • CB Jermaine Waller, No. 2
  • WR Tre Turner, No.11
  • G Lecitus Smith, No. 54
  • CB Chamarri Connor, No. 1
  • C Brock Hoffman, No. 76
  • WR Change Hodge, No. 13
  • RB Raheem Blackshear, No. 5
  • DE Emmanuel Belmar, No. 8


The Matchups: Pickett has been dominant this season, ripping up ACC defenses. Virginia Tech has one of the better defenses in the league, and it will test Pickett with a dangerous pass rusher in Barno and a ball-hawking corner in Waller.



Game Recap Analysis

Kentucky at Georgia; Saturday, Oct. 16, 3:30 PM ET CBS

The Prospects:
    Kentucky
  • OT Darian Kinnard, No. 70
  • 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

    Georgia
  • OLB Adam Anderson, No. 19
  • DT Jordan Davis, 99
  • DE Travon Walker, No. 44
  • LB Nakobe Dean, No. 17
  • DE Nolan Smith, No. 4
  • 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
  • LB Channing Tindall, No. 41


The Matchups: There are a number of good head-to-head matchups in this game, but the best is right tackle Darian Kinnard seeing his toughest challenge of the season. Georgia edge defenders Adam Anderson and Travon Walker could be future first-rounders and could test Kinnard. He also could see a future first-round pick in defensive tackle Jordan Davis. Another good matchup will come when running back Chris Rodriguez goes against that front seven, and the physical runner Rodriguez will be a challenge for Georgia linebackers Nakobe Dean, Quay Walker and Channing Tindall.



Game Recap Analysis

Florida at LSU; Saturday, Oct. 16, 12:00 PM ET ESPN

The Prospects:
    Florida
  • CB Kaiir Elam, No. 5
  • OLB Brenton Cox, 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

    LSU
  • DE Ali Gaye, No. 11
  • G Chasen Hines, No. 57
  • G Ed Ingram, No. 70
  • LB Micah Baskerville, No. 23
  • RT Austin Deculus, No. 76
  • LB Damone Clark, No. 18
  • FS Todd Harris, No. 4
  • DT Neil Farrell, No. 92
  • C Liam Shanahan, No. 56


The Matchups: Unfortunately, LSU star cornerback Derek Stingley is out indefinitely following foot surgery. The best draft matchup in this game will come up front, where Gators defensive linemen Brenton Cox Jr. and Zachary Carter will take on Tigers quality right tackle Austin Deculus and see two very good guards in Chasen Hines and Ed Ingram. Florida has some talented young defensive tackles who will test the Tigers tandem.
