Here’s what to watch before the Gators play. 

NCAA Football: Arkansas State at Alabama John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

It’s already week four and conference play is in full swing now across the country. Today, there are some significant SEC match-ups taking place (including one in Tuscaloosa) and a ranked pacific coast showdown.

For their part, the Florida Gators once again have the Saturday night lights upon them, as they hit the road for the first time this season to face rival Tennessee.

Feel free to hang out in this thread while watching any of today’s games.

Here are our picks for today’s viewing windows:

Early (12:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., Eastern)

Georgia at Missouri (12:00 p.m., ESPN): As is often the case, the noon slate features some pretty bleak competition. Florida fans would probably be most interested in this contest between two of their divisional opponents, as the No. 2 Bulldogs travel to the other SEC Columbia after wreaking havoc on the South Carolina version in week two.

Notre Dame at Wake Forest (12:00 p.m., ABC): The No. 8 Irish had all they could handle last week with Vanderbilt and are on the road for the first time this season. For their part, the Demon Deacons spent last week off due to Hurricane Florence.

Nebraska at Michigan (12:00 p.m., FS1): The No. 19 Wolverines (and wide receiver coach Jim McElwain) open conference play with the winless Huskers, who have limped to a 0-2 start under new head coach Scott Frost.

In other games: Also in the uninspiring noon slot, you can find Kent State at Ole Miss (SECN), No. 23 Boston College at Purdue (ESPN2), and Louisville at Virginia (ACCN).

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

Texas A&M at Alabama (3:30 p.m., CBS): The big afternoon showdown today is between the No. 22 Aggies and the No. 1 Tide. Jimbo Fisher opens up conference SEC play on the road in Tuscaloosa and some feel this contest may be competitive after the Aggies nearly knocked off Clemson in week 2.

South Carolina at Vanderbilt (4:00 p.m., SECN): The Commodores host the Gamecocks in their SEC opener, looking for their first win over South Carolina in a decade.

TCU at Texas (4:30 p.m., FOX): The No. 17 Horned Frogs have defeated the Longhorns four straight times and travel to Austin hoping to make it five. Texas comes into this match-up with some more confidence after defeating USC last week.

In other games: At 3:30 p.m., keep an eye on Northern Illinois at Florida State (3:30 p.m., ESPNU) - in case some sad shenanigans are afoot. There is also Kansas State at No. 12 West Virginia (ESPN) and No. 13 Virginia Tech playing at Old Dominion for some reason (CBSSN).

Evening (7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Eastern)

Obviously, you will be watching the Florida Gators on the road against the Tennessee Volunteers, at 7:00 p.m. on ESPN.

In other games: The marquee evening game is the annual Pac-12 rivalry between No. 7 Stanford and No. 20 Oregon (8:00 p.m., ABC). You could also keep an eye out during commercials for No. 14 Mississippi State at Kentucky (7:00 p.m., ESPN2), to see the Gators’ next opponent take on the team which handed Florida its first loss of the year.

And here is your schedule table for today’s games.
