Who: Huntingdon at Guilford

When: Saturday, Noon

Where: Armfield Athletic Center, Greensboro, N.C.

What to look for: Huntingdon’s rushing game could be the difference. Both teams like to pass, but the Hawks are much better at balancing the offense. Look for Kahari McReynolds and the Huntingdon defense to possibly be the difference.

Why to watch: Huntingdon definitely makes things interesting. Both of the Hawks’ games have come down to the end.

Who: Faulkner at Georgetown (Ky.)

When: Saturday, 12:30 p.m.

Where: Toyota Stadium, Georgetown, Kentucky

What to look for: Georgetown is averaging 400 yards and 47 points per game. Faulkner averages just 215 yards per game.

Why to watch: This is the second time in three games that Faulkner is facing a top 10 ranked team. Georgetown is ranked No. 10.

Who: South at Alabama at UCLA

When: Saturday, 1 p.m.

Where: Rose Bowl, Pasadena, Calif.

What to look for: South Alabama quarterback Carter Bradley is 16th in the country with 299.5 passing yards per game. UCLA is 31st in the country in passing yards allowed per game (174 ypg).

Why to watch: The Jaguars had a nice road win last week at Central Michigan. This one is much more difficult. Can South Alabama take that next step?

Who: Austin Peay at Alabama A&M

When: Saturday, 2 p.m.

Where: Louis Crews Stadium, Huntsville

What to look for: Can the Bulldog offense finally get going after two games against in-state FBS foes? Alabama A&M is currently averaging less than 10 points and 214 yards per game.

Why to watch: Austin Peay has a good quarterback in Mike DiLiello and an offense that outscored the past two opponents, 104-0.

Who: Tuskegee at West Alabama

When: Saturday, 2 p.m.

Where: Tiger Stadium, Livingston

What to look for:  West Alabama quarterback Tucker Melton was the Gulf South Conference Offensive Player of the Week after throwing for 400 yards last Saturday. Ten different receivers caught at least one pass for the Tigers.

Why to watch: Tuskegee’s Reginald Ruffin is a good football coach with a roster full of newcomers. At some point, they will take a step forward.

Who: Georgia Southern at UAB

When: Saturday, 2:30 p.m.

Where: Protective Stadium, Birmingham

What to look for: Does momentum coming into the game mean anything? Georgia Southern is coming off a huge win at Nebraska. UAB is coming off a disappointing evening at Liberty. Two teams with two different motivations.

Why to watch: Sure, the fumbles were harmful last week, but that doesn’t completely erase that watching DeWayne McBride and Jermaine Brown Jr. run the football is worth the price of admission.

Who: Penn State at Auburn

When: Saturday, 2:30 p.m.

Where: Jordan Hare Stadium

What to look for: What color jerseys will Auburn wear on Saturday? Sure, it has nothing to do with the game, at least when it comes to Xs and Os, but it would be really cool to see the Tigers come out in orange jerseys. Can somebody make that happen?

Why to watch: Auburn sort of scuffled its way through the first two weeks. This is the biggest test thus far for Bryan Harsin’s team. How will they handle things against a good team?

Who: Louisiana-Monroe at Alabama

When: Saturday, 2:30 p.m.

Where: Bryant Denny Stadium

What to look for: So much to watch for from the Tide - do the receivers play better, does the offensive line get better push, can the cornerbacks improve? That’s just a start. Or, the real start, Nick Saban has reminded us all week, is respecting the team on the other side, no matter what it says on the front of the jerseys.

Why to watch: Bryce Young has always been fun to watch. Alabama fans quickly learned that watching Jahmyr Gibbs play is also fun to watch.

Who: Jacksonville State at Tulsa

When: 6 p.m.

Where: H.A. Chapman Stadium, Tulsa, Oklahoma

What to look for: The Gamecocks have played well in their first three weeks under Rich Rodriguez. Tulsa offers a different challenge. Can Jacksonville State’s quick tempo offense get them going? Can athletic defense hold up against bigger and better linemen?

Why to watch: Tulsa quarterback Davis Brin is coming off a game where the threw four touchdowns to lead his team to a 35-31 win over Northern Illinois. All Jacksonville State quarterback Zion Webb is find ways to help his team win.

Who: Samford at Tennessee Tech

When: Saturday, 6 p.m.

Where: Tucker Stadium, Cookeville, Tennessee

What to look for: Both teams are led by experienced quarterbacks in their first season at the school. Tennessee Tech quarterback Jeremiah Oatsvall is a former starter at Austin Peay and spent one season at Memphis. Junior college transfer Michael Hiers is Samford’s signal caller.

Why to watch: The Bulldogs get back to more evenly matched football after taking the trip to Athens, Georgia.

Who: Valdosta State at Miles College

When: Saturday, 6 p.m.

Where: Sloan-Alumni Stadium

What to look for: Defending the running game was a problem for Valdosta State last week. The Blazers gave up 525 rushing yards against Virginia Union.

Why to watch: Valdosta State has lost only two regular season games since the 2017 season. One of those losses came last week against visiting Virginia Union.

Who: UNA at Chattanooga

When: Saturday, 6 p.m.

Where: Finley Stadium

What to look for: When it comes to playing better opponents, has the UNA offense taken strides since last year? Chattanooga allowed less than 100 yards in offense in a 20-0 win over UNA in Florence. Only 38 or those came on the ground. Can UNA running back ShunDerrick Powell and the Lions change that?

Why to watch: Chattanooga is the 9th ranked FCS team in the country. UNA is 0-11 against nationally ranked FCS teams. Can the Lions end that streak?
