Here's what to watch before the Gators play.

Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports

The Gators continue their October slate of heavyweight SEC match-ups by traveling to Baton Rouge for a night game against LSU in Tiger Stadium. Florida-LSU is a game which is always interesting. No. 8 Florida and No. 6 LSU face off at 7:00 p.m. on ESPN, and either the Gators or the Tigers will pick up their first loss of the season.

Here are our picks for the two viewing windows before Florida:

Early (noon to 3:30 p.m. Eastern)

Mississippi at Memphis (noon, ABC/ESPN2): Memphis is undefeated and a pretty good offensive team. Ole Miss should pull away and win this one but it could stay interesting for awhile. This is a home game for Memphis, as the Tigers traveled to Ole Miss last year for the first game of the home and away series. The Rebels won last year's game 24-3 but only lead 7-3 going into the fourth quarter.

Iowa at Northwestern (noon, ABC/ESPN2): Points will be at a premium in this game which figures to be a defensive struggle, but it will likely decide the winner of the Big Ten West.

Louisiana Tech at Mississippi State (noon, SECN): Former Gator Jeff Driskel leads Louisiana Tech to Starkville to take on former Gator offensive coordinator Dan Mullen's Bulldogs.

Afternoon (3:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Eastern)

Alabama at Texas A&M (3:30 p.m., CBS): After an upset in 2012, a shootout in 2013 and a beat down in 2014, this relatively new divisional match-up has seen its share of story lines. The Crimson Tide goes to Kyle Field with one loss to face an undefeated Aggie team coming off a bye week.

Michigan State at Michigan (3:30 p.m., ESPN): Undefeated Michigan State travels to Ann Arbor after close calls with Purdue and Rutgers to take on rival "big brother" Michigan, and it's outstanding defense, for College GameDay's "game of the week". Michigan has pitched three consecutive shut-outs and dominated its opponents after its season opening loss to Utah.
