Game Recap Analysis

Michigan vs. Michigan State; Saturday, Oct. 30, 3:30 PM ET ABC

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
  • WR Ronnie Bell, No. 8
  • NT Donovan Jeter, 95

    Michigan State
  • RB Kenneth Walker, No. 9
  • WR Jayden Reed, No. 1
  • C Matthew Allen, No. 64
  • G Kevin Jarvis, No. 75
  • OT A.J. Acuri, No. 76
  • P Bryce Baringer, No. 99
  • DE Jacob Panasiuk, No. 96
  • SS Xavier Henderson, No. 3


The Matchups: Michigan edge defender Aidan Hutchinson is a dangerous pass rusher, and his run defense will be tested by Spartans tailback Kenneth Walker. Michigan State has some big-play receivers like Jayden Reed, so Hutchinson will be needed to pressure the quarterback to help the Wolverines secondary. This is a great test for Walker because he will see a tough defense with a number of future NFL competitors.



Game Recap Analysis

Penn State vs. Ohio State; Saturday, Oct. 30, 7:30 PM ET FOX

The Prospects:
    Penn State
  • LB Brandon Smith, No. 12
  • WR Jahan Dotson, No. 5
  • OT Rasheed Walker, No. 53
  • CB Tariq Castro-Fields, No. 5
  • DE Arnold Ebiketie, No. 17
  • FS Jaquan Brisker, No. 1
  • LB Jesse Luketa, No. 40
  • RB John Lovett, No. 23
  • DT Patrick Mustipher, No. 97
  • DT Derrick Tangelo, No. 54
  • LB Ellis Brooks, No. 13
  • QB Sean Clifford, No. 14
  • P Jordan Stout, No. 98
  • G Michael Miranda, No. 73

    Ohio State
  • WR Chris Olave, No. 2
  • CB Sevyn Banks, No. 7
  • TE Jeremy Ruckert, No.88
  • DE Tyreke Smith, No. 11
  • DT Haskell Garrett No. 92
  • FS Josh Proctor, No. 41
  • OT Thayer Munford, No. 75
  • NT Jerron Cage, No. 86
  • LB Dallas Gant, No. 19
  • CB Marcus Williamson
  • DE Tyler Friday, No. 54
  • DT Antwuan Jackson, No. 52
  • CB Demario McCall, No. 1
  • LB Teradja Mitchell, No. 3
  • WR Garrett Wilson, No. 5
  • DE Zach Harrison, No. 9


The Matchups: The best draft matchup in this game comes at the skill positions with Nittany Lions cornerback Tariq Castro-Fields and safety Jaguan Brisker taking on Buckeyes wide receivers Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson. All four could be NFL starters before long. Ohio State has a good secondary that will be a quality test for Penn State wide receiver Jahan Dotson. Another good matchup will be the Buckeyes edge rushers taking on Nittany Lions left tackle Rasheed Walker.



Game Recap Analysis

Georgia vs. Florida; Saturday, Oct. 30, 3:30 PM ET CBS

The Prospects:
    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

    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


The Matchups: Georgia has a defense loaded with future NFL talent, including potential first-rounders in Adam Anderson, Jordan Davis and Travon Walker. Those three could be tested by the Gators, depending on which version of the team shows up. If it is the Florida that almost beat Alabama, this will be a tough test for the Georgia defenders. If the Gators play like they did against Kentucky, however, the Bulldogs defenders could have a field day.



Game Recap Analysis

North Carolina vs. Notre Dame; Saturday, Oct. 30, 7:30 PM ET NBC

The Prospects:
    North Carolina
  • G Marcus McKethan, No. 73
  • OLB Tomon Fox, No. 12
  • OT Jordan Tucker, 74
  • RB Ty Chandler, No. 19
  • C Brian Anderson, No. 68
  • WR Garrett Walston
  • LB Jeremiah Gemmel, No. 44
  • NT Raymond Vohasek, No. 51
  • QB Sam Howell, 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: The best draft matchup in this game was going to be North Carolina quarterback Sam Howell facing Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton, but Hamilton is out with the knee injury he suffered last week. Hamilton is a dynamic ball-hawking safety, and Howell is capable of lighting up a secondary. Howell has had some underwhelming games this season and needs to close out the season well to help his draft grade.
