Game Recap Analysis

Maryland vs. Michigan; Saturday, Sept. 24, 12:00 PM ET FOX

The Prospects:
  • WR Dontay Demus Jr, No. 7
  • WR Jacob Copeland, No. 2
  • WR Rakim Jarrett, No. 1
  • OT Jaelyn Duncan, No. 71
  • OT Delmar Glaze, No. 74

  • WR Ronnie Bell, No. 8
  • WR Cronelius Johnson, No. 6
  • TE Erick All, No. 83
  • TE Luke Schoonmaker, No. 86
  • OT Ryan Hayes, No. 76

The Matchups: Maryland has a trio of receivers led by the talented Dontay Demus Jr. Demus will see a quality defense taking on Michigan, which could have one of the better secondaries he will see all season.

Game Recap Analysis

Clemson vs. Wake Forest; Saturday, Sept. 24, 12:00 PM ET ABC

The Prospects:
  • DT Bryan Bresee, No. 11
  • DE Myles Murphy, No. 98
  • TE Davis Allen, No. 84
  • LB Trenton Simpson, No. 22
  • LT Jordan McFadden, No. 71
  • DT Tyler Davis, No. 13
  • DT Ruke Orhorhoro, No. 33
  • DE K.J. Henry, No. 5

    Wake Forest
  • WR A.T. Perry, No. 9
  • TE Blake Whitehart, No. 85
  • QB Sam Hartman, No. 10
  • C Michael Jurgens, No. 55

The Matchups: Bresee and Murphy are dynamic pass rushers, and Clemson will need them to keep Hartman from pulling off a big upset. This game will be a good test for Perry because the Tigers have a young secondary, but he is talented. NFL teams could end up studying Perry's performance against Clemson closely.

Game Recap Analysis

Florida vs. Tennessee; Saturday, Sept. 24, 3:30 PM ET CBS

The Prospects:
  • QB Anthony Richardson, No. 15
  • G O'Cyrus Torrence, No. 54
  • WR Justin Shorter, No. 4
  • OLB Brenton Cox Jr., No. 1
  • ILB Ventrell Miller, No. 51
  • DT Gervon Dexter, No. 9
  • S Trey Dean III, No. 00
  • S Rashard Torrence, No. 22

  • WR Cedric Tillman, No. 4
  • QB Hendon Hooker, No. 5
  • LB Byron Young, No. 6
  • LB Jeremy Banks, No. 33

The Matchups: After an up-and-down start to the season, Richardson could use a good road performance at Tennessee to help his draft stock. It will be interesting to see how Hooker and Tillman perform against an improved Florida defense.

Game Recap Analysis

Texas vs. Texas Tech; Saturday, Sept. 24, 3:30 PM ET ESPN

The Prospects:
  • RB Bijan Robinson, No. 5
  • LB DeMarvion Overshown, No. 00
  • TE Jahleel Billingsley, No. 9
  • OT Christian Jones, No. 70
  • RB Roschon Johnson, No. 2
  • RB Keilan Robinson, No. 7
  • DT Moro Ojomo, No. 98
  • DT Keondre Coburn, No. 99

    Texas Tech
  • TE Tyree Wilson, No. 19
  • RB SaRodorick Thompson, No. 4

The Matchups: Tyree Wilson could be an early-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, and he will have his run defense tested by the Longhorns. On top of superstar Bijan Robinson, Texas has two other backs who could play on Sundays and will challenge the Red Raiders. Texas Tech running back SaRodorick Thompson will be a nice test for Longhorns linebacker DeMarvion Overshown.

Game Recap Analysis

Arkansas vs. Texas A&M; Saturday, Sept. 24, 7:00 PM ET ESPN

The Prospects:
  • QB K.J. Jefferson, No. 1
  • WR Jadon Haselwood, No. 9
  • C Ricky Stromberg, No. 51
  • LB Zach Williams, No. 56

    Texas A&M
  • S/CB Antonio Johnson, No. 17
  • WR Ainias Smith, No. 00

The Matchups: The Aggies have a lot of young talent on their defense to test K.J. Jefferson. The dual-threat Jefferson will also be a big challenge for Texas A&M star defensive back Antonio Johnson.

Game Recap Analysis

Wisconsin vs. Ohio State; Saturday, Sept. 24, 7:30 PM ET ABC

The Prospects:
  • DT Isaiah Mullens, No. 99
  • DT Keeanu Benton, No. 95
  • OLB Nick Herbig, No. 19
  • OT Jack Nelson, No. 79

    Ohio State
  • QB C.J. Stroud, No. 7
  • WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba, No. 11
  • DE Zach Harrison, No. 9
  • OT Paris Johnson, No. 77
  • OT Dawand Jones, No. 79
  • G Matthew Jones, No. 55
  • C Luke Wypler, No. 53
  • DT Taron Vincent, No. 6
  • DE Javontae Dean-Baptiste, No. 8
  • S Josh Proctor, No. 41
  • S Ronnie Hickman, No. 14

The Matchups: The Badgers don't have the talent who they've had in recent years, but there is a decent draft matchup here with Buckeyes edge rusher Zach Harrison going against Wisconsin tackle Jack Nelson.

Game Recap Analysis

Kansas State vs. Oklahoma; Saturday, Sept. 24, 8:00 PM ET FOX

The Prospects:
    Kansas State
  • DE Felix Anudike-Uzomah, No. 1
  • LT K.T. Leveston, No. 70
  • CB Julius Brents, No. 23
  • WR Malik Knowles, No. 4
  • G Cooper Beebe, No. 50
  • RB Deuce Vaughn, No. 22

  • OT Anton Harrison, No. 71
  • OT Wanya Morris, No. 64
  • DT Jalen Redmond, No. 31
  • RB Eric Gray, No. 00
  • WR Marvin Mims, No. 17

The Matchups: This game features a good matchup in the trenches with Anudike-Uzomah taking on two future pro tackles in Harrison and Morris. If Anudike-Uzomah has a big game against Oklahoma, that could really help his draft grade and cause him to rise.
