LSU-Auburn highlights college football schedule
1. LSU at Auburn, 2:30 p.m., CBS: Two coaches, LSU’s Ed Orgeron and Auburn’s Gus Malzahn, who seem to be in perpetual hot water square off. One difference – Malzahn has won big. Orgeron so far has not.
2. Washington at Utah, 9 p.m., ESPN: This could be a preview of the Pac-12 Championship Game.
3. Alabama at Ole Miss, 6 p.m., ESPN: Nick Saban is just 2-2 in his last four games against the Rebels, but those Hugh Freeze Mississippi teams are gone.
4. Brigham Young at Wisconsin, 2:30 p.m., ABC: This could be a quick game. BYU runs the ball these days, and Wisconsin runs it as well as any team.
5. Vanderbilt at Notre Dame, 1:30 p.m., NBC: This is Brian Kelly’s ninth year as the Fighting Irish coach. If he makes it to 2020, he matches Lou Holtz, Ara Parseghian and Frank Leahy, trailing only Knute Rockne’s 13 years.
6. Arizona State at San Diego State, 9:30 p.m., CBS Sports Network: San Diego State beat the Sun Devils last season in Tempe.
7. Missouri at Purdue, 6:30 p.m., Big Ten Network: Boilermakers beat Mizzou last season in Columbia.
8. Hawaii at Army, 11 a.m., CBS Sports Network: The Rainbow Warriors beat Navy on Sept. 1. Alas, Hawaii doesn’t play Air Force this season, unless they meet in the Mountain West title game.
9. Florida State at Syracuse, 11 a.m., ESPN: The Orange is 1-10 all-time against the Seminoles, winning only the first meeting in the series, 1966.
10. South Florida at Illinois, 2:30 p.m., Big Ten Network: USF knocked off Georgia Tech last season and can get to 2-0 against the Power 5.
