They may be the most entertaining matchup, but there is plenty of other prospects to keep an eye on. The following is the list of top prospects in today's game to focus on, courtesy of my fellow Senior Analyst Chad Reuter.

--Notre Dame DT Ian Williams (6-2, 305, 5.17): The wide-body nose tackle has missed the last four contests but expects to suit up in his last college game.

--Notre Dame WR Michael Floyd (6-3, 228, 4.52): If his leg is healthy and he's on the same page as freshman QB Tommy Rees, Floyd will use his big body against fellow junior prospect CB Brandon Harris.

--Notre Dame TE Kyle Rudolph (6-5, 265, 4.64): A hamstring tear ended Rudolph's season early and he won't be on the field today, but the junior could wind up as the first tight end drafted, whether he elects to leave school early this year or return for his senior campaign.

--Miami (Fla.) DE Allen Bailey (6-4, 285, 4.79): Excellent athlete who flashes pass rush (seven sacks) across from junior DE Adewale Ojomo, but needs to have a consistently strong effort against an average Irish line to impress scouts.

--Miami ILB Colin McCarthy (6-2, 240, 4.67): Heady, versatile, productive (106 tackles, 10 for loss) player scouts believe can play inside or on the strong side at the next level.

--Miami WR Leonard Hankerson (6-3, 208, 4.52): Tall strider who can stretch the field, but faces a strong corner in Notre Dame's Darrin Walls.

--Miami LT Orlando Franklin (6-7, 315, 5.30): Impressive just stepping off the bus, if Franklin's footwork begins to match his strength, he could become a starting NFL left tackle.

--Miami CB Brandon Harris (5-11, 195, 4.45): A highly touted prep prospect, Harris has emerged as the latest in a long line of Miami defensive backs worthy of first round consideration. Only a junior.

Michael Floyd is looking good so far, maybe he can be the big WR Ben has always wanted since Plaxico left...

Harrison Smith! Three INTs. Heck of a first half.

I started a thread about Floyd after I saw him play versus USC at the Coliseum a while back and couldn’t help but be awed by him. In so many ways he reminded me of a bigger version of Hines Ward. He isnt a speed burner but has enough football speed to create separation. He has strong body that enables him to fight off the jam at the LOS. He makes clutch catches and is one tremendous blocker. He will break your face. I really like him a lot. I think his better days will be a s professional and he is going to be one that many teams regret passing on.

By the way...if you wanna see a freak watch the game tonight South Carolina versus Florida State. Alshon Jeffery is the "ONE".

Marcus Lattimore is no slouch either.
