Week 4

Friday, Sept. 25

UTSA 37, Middle Tennessee 35

Saturday, Sept. 26

Kansas State at No. 3 Oklahoma | 12 p.m. | Fox

No. 5 Florida at Ole Miss | 12 p.m. | ESPN

No. 7 Notre Dame at Wake Forest — POSTPONED

No. 23 Kentucky at No. 8 Auburn | 12 p.m. | SEC Network | Preview: This could be the most intriguing matchup of the day. It's the first week in the SEC, but both teams can't risk falling behind much before facing (perhaps) more difficult challenges.

A lot of this game — and Auburn's entire season — will depend on QB Bo Nix. He led the Tigers as a freshman last season to a 9-4 season and a win against rival Alabama.

From the other side, Kentucky's offensive line could easily take this over thanks to center Drake Jackson, tackle Landon Young and tackle Darian Kinnard.

No. 13  UCF at East Carolina | 12 p.m. | ABC

No. 24 Louisville at Pitt | 12 p.m. | ACC Network

Georgia Southern at No. 19 Louisiana | 12 p.m. | ESPN2

Campbell at Appalachian State | 12 p.m. | ESPN+

Georgia Tech at Syracuse | 12 p.m. | ESPN3

Georgia State at Charlotte — POSTPONED

FIU at Liberty | 1 p.m. | ESPN3

Iowa State at TCU | 1:30 p.m. | FS1

Tulane at Southern Miss | 2:30 p.m. | Stadium

Mississippi State at No. 6 LSU | 3:30 p.m. | CBS | Preview: Good luck, Myles Brennan. He takes over for Heisman winner Joe Burrow after leading the Tigers to a national championship. Other talented players are gone, too, but it starts at quarterback. LSU also has two new coordinators, but it has so much talent that it will come down to how quickly the players can grow. At least they get to start at home.

Then again, there's also a new look at Mississippi State, where Mike Leach gets to work with transfer QB K.J. Costello.

No. 8 Texas at Texas Tech | 3:30 p.m. | Fox | Preview: Texas QB Sam Ehlinger should be ready for a big day. He already passed for 426 yards and five touchdowns in the opener against UTEP. And now he faces a Texas Tech team that gave up almost 600 passing yards to Houston Baptist.

It's Big 12-only for these two the rest of the season. Watch this if you like points and not punts.

West Virginia at No. 15 Oklahoma State | 3:30 p.m. | ABC

No. 22 Army at No. 14 Cincinnati | 3:30 p.m. | ESPN | Preview: Though the defending national champions are on CBS in their season opener, don't forget about this one.

 

This is the first time a ranked Army team plays against a ranked team since Nov. 16, 1996, when No. 22 Army met Donovan McNabb and No. 19 Syracuse. That was a 42-17 win for Syracuse.

Also, though Army beat Navy in 2016 when the Midshipmen were No. 25 in the CFP rankings, the Black Knights haven't defeated an AP ranked team since 1971 — No. 19 Air Force.

UTEP at UL Monroe | 3:30 p.m. | ESPN2

Tulsa at Arkansas State — POSTPONED

No. 4 Georgia at Arkansas | 4 p.m. | SEC Network

Duke at Virginia | 4 p.m. | ACC Network

Texas State at Boston College | 6 p.m. | ESPN3

South Florida at Florida Atlantic — POSTPONED

No. 2 Alabama at Missouri | 7 p.m. | ESPN

North Texas at Houston — CANCELED

Houston Baptist at Louisiana Tech | 7 p.m. | ESPN3

Stephen F. Austin at SMU | 7 p.m. | ESPN+

Vanderbilt at No. 10 Texas A&M | 7:30 p.m. | SEC ALT

No. 16 Tennessee at South Carolina | 7:30 p.m. | SEC Network
