It's been a rough start for Tulsa, but the Golden Hurricane got their first win of the season last week and may be able to ride that momentum into their American Athletic Conference opener against Houston. The Cougars have won three in a row after dropping their opener. The teams have flipped their 2020 scripts a little with the Cougars possessing the stingier defense thus far.

No. 5 Iowa at Maryland, 8 p.m. on FS1

Iowa had to rally at home last weekend to survive Colorado State and now faces fellow Big Ten undefeated Maryland on the road. The Hawkeyes are getting it done on defense, but their offense is sputtering. The Terrapins boast one of the nation's top passing attacks, and this will be their toughest test yet.

No. 13 BYU at Utah State, 9 p.m. on CBSSN

It's the 90th edition of the Battle for the Old Wagon Wheel with BYU coming to Logan to face Utah State. The Cougars won in Maverik Stadium the last time these two teams played (in 2019) and have picked up where they left off from last season, even without quarterback Zach Wilson and a couple of other key pieces. The Aggies dropped their first game last week, as Boise State took full advantage of their sloppy play (three turnovers, 13 penalties) in a 27-3 victory.
