No.2 Alabama will welcome the Florida Gators to Tuscaloosa on Saturday afternoon. The Gators are 2-0 this season with an experienced quarterback in Jeff Driskel, who has thrown for four touchdowns and 543 yards passing this season.
Last weekend in the Swamp, the Gators were truly battle-tested by an eastern division foe in the Kentucky Wildcats, who took Florida into a triple overtime game. UF came away victorious by the score of 36-30, but the Gators struggled to stop the Kentucky offense from marching down the field.
For the Crimson Tide, the matchup against the Gators will be the first time Alabama has faced a SEC opponent this season. In their first three games, the Tide has really poured on the points with its offense ran by Blake Sims and Jacob Coker.
It will be a good matchup on CBS at 2:30p.m. CST.


Dan Mullens will lead his Mississippi State Bulldogs into Death Valley Saturday night to tangle with the Bayou Bengals from LSU.
State quarterback Dak Prescott who on the season has nine touchdowns and 696 passing yards. He is also good with his feet with 40 carries and 273 rushing yards.
The Tigers are lead by sophomore quarterback Anthony Jennings, who has passed for 566 yards and five touchdowns.
This is a good early match-up to possibly see a top 10 upset by the Bulldogs over the Tigers as LSU is only a nine-point favorite in the game.
Kick off is set for 6:00 p.m. CST on ESPN.


The Aggies of Texas A&M are traveling to Dallas to take on SMU. So far this season, Kyle Allen has not missed a beat off of how John Manziel led the team.
In the past three games, TAMU has scored a total of 163 points and only given up 41 to their opponent.
Kick off is at 2:30p.m. on ABC and ESPN2 .


Other match-ups this weekend include:
Indiana at Missouri, 3 p.m. CST on SEC Network
Troy at Georgia, 11 a.m. on SEC Network
Northern Illinois travels to Arkansas, 6 p.m. CST ESPNU
South Carolina at Vanderbilt, the only other SEC matchup of the weekend, is expected to be a one-sided match with the dominant South Carolina offense facing a young Vanderbilt team and new coach. Kick off is at 6:30 p.m. on SEC Network.
Auburn narrowly managed to escape defeat at Kansas State Thursday night 20-14. The Top 20 Wildcats made a push at the end of the second half, but an interception tacked on to three missed field goal attempts cost Kansas State the win.
Ole Miss, Tennessee and Kentucky have the weekend off to prepare for next week’s opponents. The Rebels will play Memphis Tigers at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 27 in Oxford.
