Batman and Robin. Peanut butter and jelly. Starsky and Hutch. Peas and carrots.

Some things are just better together, and college football has plenty of those perfect combinations every year. Predicting which ones are going to click the loudest and perform the greatest is always a fun offseason chore.

The 2023 season is no different. The sport is giving us plenty of dynamic duos, and every one of the names of these guys already should be on your radar.

From a duo of SEC teams' defenders to a mid-major powerhouse making a serious leap up in level of competition, there are a lot of tandems you should know.

A few just missed the list like Alabama's offensive tackle duo of freshman Kadyn Proctor and JC Latham (because are offensive linemen really dynamic?), Tennessee's Joe Milton III and Bru McCoy and Wisconsin's Braelon Allen getting a new signal-caller in Tanner Mordecai.

Plenty of others like Clemson quarterback Cade Klubnik and running back Will Shipley, as well as Colorado's superb young cornerback tandem of Travis Hunter and Cormani McClain could have been included, too. But they just missed.

Who made the list? Let's take a gander, as we say in the South.


10. Frank Harris and Zakhari Franklin, UTSA Roadrunners

It's always fun to include the littler-known Group of Five teams when you can, and one of the mid-major programs with major offensive firepower is the UTSA Road Runners.

Coach Jeff Traylor's program leaves Conference USA for the American Athletic Conference, where competition is going to be much more fierce than it has been. The best news for the Road Runners, though, is they're going into it with a ton of talent.

Seventh-year (yes, you read that right) senior quarterback Frank Harris returns to usher the program into the new era, and he has a wealth of talent around him like receivers Joshua Cephus and De'Corian Clark.

But the best of the pass-catchers may just be Zakhari Franklin, who also returns to make UTSA a dangerous team right as it's heading into its new stomping grounds and also going to Rocky Top to play Tennessee.

A year ago, Franklin had 94 catches for 1,136 yards and 15 touchdowns, and at one point, the trio of receivers were 1-2-3 in the Conference USA. So, this is not a dynamic duo as much as it is a quality quartet.

Whatever you want to call them, the Road Runners have a lot of playmakers. Watch out for them making some noise as they make the leap.
