From an NFL scouting perspective, individual matchups do not get much better than this weekend's feature bout between WR Adarius Bowman and CB Aqib Talib (see below). There are, however, dozens of other individual battles that NFL scouts are eagerly anticipating. Here’s a look at what I consider the 10 best matchups outside of Bowman-Talib in Week 11:

• Cal OC Alex Mack* vs. USC NT Sedrick Ellis
• Michigan WR Mario Manningham* vs. Wisconsin CB Jack Ikegwuonu*
• Cal WR's Lavelle Hawkins and DeSean Jackson* vs. USC CB Terrell Thomas
• Arkansas RB Darren McFadden* vs. Tennessee LB Jerod Mayo*
• Louisville QB Brian Brohm vs. West Virginia DS Eric Wicks
• WVU RB Steve Slaton* vs. Louisville LB Malik Jackson
• Michigan RB Mike Hart vs. Wisconsin WLB Jonathan Casillas*
• Cal RBJustin Forsett vs. USC LB’s Rey Maualuga* and Keith Rivers
• Clemson OT Barry Richardson vs. Wake Forest DE Jeremy Thompson
• FSU WR De’Cody Fagg vs. Virginia Tech CB Macho Harris*
* indicates draft-eligible underclassmen
