With a hurricane expected to hit the east coast in the coming days, some games, most notably West Virginia - NC State, have already been postponed, or moved, as in Virginia’s case. That said, there are still plenty of matchups to get excited about on this Saturday’s slate.
Virginia Cavaliers vs. Ohio University Bobcats:
After suffering a close, albeit disappointing loss to Indiana last week, the Virginia Cavaliers now have to deal with traveling to Nashville for what was supposed to be a home game. They’ll also face a pretty solid team from the MAC in Ohio, who is coming off of a 9-4 season.

#12 LSU Tigers at #7 Auburn Tigers:
Both LSU and Auburn had impressive week one victories over then higher ranked teams, defeating Miami and Washington, respectively. Winning this one will go a long way for either team in the SEC West race. In the last two years, this game has come down to the end of the fourth quarters; we can only hope to see something similar to that again.

#17 Boise State Broncos at #24 Oklahoma State Cowboys:
While Oklahoma State has handled their business early on, Boise State has absolutely trounced the competition in the first two weeks, including a 62-7 beating over Connecticut last week at home. Wins like these have catapulted the Broncos into the top five of Bill Connelly’s weekly S&P+ rankings. We’ll see if they are deserving of this honor in Stillwater on Saturday.

#4 Ohio State Buckeyes vs. #15 TCU Horned Frogs:
This is the last game Ohio State will play without Urban Meyer on the sidelines this season. It is also the first test the Buckeyes face this year, having to play the always loaded offense of Gary Patterson and TCU. It all goes down in prime time at AT&T Stadium in Dallas.
