J.J. Worton is a threat as a receiver and as a returner for the Knights.

UCF vs. Missouri, noon, FSN, 1350-AM

The Tigers (2-2) are the first SEC team to play at UCF (2-1). WR Ranell Hall has 197 receiving yards and 178 kickoff return yards for the Knights, and teammate J.J. Worton has 190 yards receiving and 128 on punt returns.

Miami vs. N.C. State, noon, ESPNU, 1040-AM

The teams haven't met in nearly four years. The Hurricanes (3-1, 2-0 ACC) are trying for their first three-game winning streak since 2009, and the Wolfpack (3-1, 0-0) is aiming to win four in a row for the first time since 2010. N.C. State has allowed only 28 points in the past three games.

Florida A&M at Southern, at Atlanta, 3:30, NBCSN

QB Damien Fleming completed 30 of 37 passes for 399 yards with three touchdowns to lead the Rattlers (2-2) to a victory over Delaware State last week and win Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference offensive player of the week honors. Southern is 1-2.

Florida Atlantic vs. North Texas, 5

The Owls (1-3, 0-1 Sun Belt) hold a 6-2 all-time record against the Mean Green (1-3, 0-1), but North Texas has won the past two. FAU, led by QB Graham Wilbert, had 110 total yards against top-ranked Alabama last week.

Bethune-Cookman at Hampton, 6

Hampton is struggling (0-3, 0-1 MEAC), and its season won't get easier against the Wildcats (2-2, 1-0), who are led by Isidore Jackson's 335 rushing yards and two touchdowns.

Florida International at Louisiana-Lafayette, 7

The Ragin' Cajuns (2-1, 1-0 Sun Belt) have won six in a row at home. The all-time series against Louisiana-Lafayette is one of the longest ongoing for FIU (1-3, 0-0); the first meeting took place in the program's second season (2003). The Ragin' Cajuns hold the series lead 7-2; however, FIU has won two of the past three meetings.
