Campbell at Wake Forest, 7 p.m. ET on ACC Network
This matchup was moved up a week after Wake Forest's scheduled Sept. 26 meeting with Notre Dame was postponed due to COVID-19 concerns within the Fighting Irish's program. The timing probably won't matter as the Fighting Camels from the FCS ranks have lost their last two games to Sun Belt teams by a combined 53 points. The Demon Deacons are looking for their first win after losing at home to Clemson a few weeks ago and on the road to NC State last Saturday.
Louisiana Tech at BYU, 9 p.m. ET on ESPN2
The Cougars are ranked No. 22 in the country after posting a pair of dominating wins over Navy and Troy. The Bulldogs from Conference USA are also 2-0 with a come-from-behind win on the road against Southern Miss and a lopsided win last Saturday over FCS opponent Houston Baptist. Louisiana Tech will be tasked with slowing down a BYU offense that's averaging 622 yards per game while the Cougars' defense has given up just 165 yards per contest and a total of 10 points.
