Week four on the college football schedule offers a bit of a breather with only a few top match-ups between ranked teams.  Yet even with watered down match-ups there will soon be some pointed battles between top NFL prospects on Saturday.

Alabama vs Arkansas

A potential measuring stick for Ryan Mallett who be facing pressure from Marcel Dareus besides having to beat Mark Barron in centerfield.

Stanford vs Notre Dame

Most will be concentrating on Andrew Luck, who we expect to enter the draft as per our podcast.  We’ll be watching Irish receiver Michael Floyd against Cardinal cornerback Richard Sherman, who, in our opinion is one of the most underrated at his position.

South Carolina vs Auburn

A huge game in the SEC to this point.  Auburn tackle Lee Ziemba will have his hands full with the Gamecocks Cliff Matthews, who has drawn comparisons’ to former first round pick John Abraham.

Georgia vs Mississippi State

Justin Houston is not one for playing in space as the junior shows no instincts when asked to read and diagnose.  He is a terrific pass rusher though and will give highly rated senior left tackle Derek Sherrod all he can handle.

West Virginia vs LSU

Tiger senior Kelvin Sheppard is a terrific linebacker and a three down defender.  He could further prove himself to be one of the highest rated players at his position should he show the ability to handle Noel Devine and Jock Sanders on Saturday night.
