First look at upcoming college football games

Missouri at Auburn (11 a.m., ESPN)… Can a win in the SEC opener help stop the anger building on the Plains? Can Auburn find the formula to win their first SEC game? It’s probably the best question. It will take a lot more than a win over Missouri to bring good vibes to where Auburn is as a program under Bryan Harsin right now.

Miles College at Central State (noon)… Central State has lost the last two games by a combined nine points. Miles College’s two most recent losses came by a combined 79 points.

Belhaven at Huntingdon (1pm)… Belhaven has seven passing touchdowns and six rushing touchdowns in two games. Huntingdon’s defence, which played well on Saturday, has a tough challenge.

Allen University vs. Tuskegee at Cramton Bowl (1 p.m.)… Tuskegee carries the momentum of having won for the first time this season.

Cumberlands University at Faulkner (1:30 p.m.)… Faulkner averaging just 236 yards and 18 points per game.

Western Carolina at Samford (2 pm, ESPN3)… Samford is feeling good about himself heading into the Conference South game. These teams combined for 79 points and 1,030 yards in Samford’s win over Western Carolina last season.

West Georgia at West Alabama (2 p.m.)… West Alabama struggled offensively on Saturday. They now face a defense that allowed seven points in the first two games.

Jacksonville State at Nicholls (3 p.m.)… What will the Gamecocks’ quarterback rotation look like against Nicholls without a win?

Alabama A&M at Florida A&M (5 p.m., ESPN+)… The Bulldogs are still looking for their first win as they enter the SWAC game.

Prairie View A&M in the state of Alabama (5 pm) … The state of Alabama had a week off to heal bumps and bruises and prepare for SWAC.

Louisiana Tech in South Alabama (6 p.m., ESPN+)… The Jaguars need to regroup quickly with the arrival of the Bulldogs.

Marshall at Troy (6 p.m., NFL Network)… Marshall followed the victory at Notre Dame with a loss at Bowling Green. Explain that. Troy has to put the pain of losing in a Hail Mary at Appalachian State behind him and prepare for another tough game.

Tarleton Status at UNA (6 p.m., ESPN+)… Tarleton State quarterback Beau Allen began his college career at Kentucky.

Point University in Birmingham-Southern (6 p.m.)… Panthers had the week off to prepare for a team still looking for the first win.

Vanderbilt at Alabama (6:30 p.m. SEC Network)… After four games, Vanderbilt is halfway to bowl eligibility. The Commodores won’t be getting any closer this week.

Goodbye: UAB

*-All games are Saturday
