LSU (4-2) at Florida (4-2)

(6 p.m. Saturday)

Northwestern State (2-4) at Houston Christian (2-3)

                  (6 p.m. Saturday)

Six games into the 2022 season, the Grambling State Tigers finally play within the home confines of Eddie G. Robinson Memorial Stadium as they play host to Florida A&M at 1 p.m. Saturday.

GSU opened the year with six straight road games, spanning more than 4,196 miles, with the longest trip being a visit to Daytona Beach, Fla., to meet Bethune-Cookman.

Grambling rallied from a touchdown down in the final seconds to force double overtime last weekend before falling 37-31 at Alabama A&M. 

Louisiana Tech looks to build on momentum captured during last week’s win over Texas-El Paso as the Bulldogs travel to Denton, Texas, to face North Texas at 3 p.m. Saturday.

The game will be broadcasted on ESPN+.

Tech has won the last four matchups over the Mean Green.

As LSU plays at Florida at 6 p.m., the march toward postseason play continues for first-year coaches Brian Kelly of LSU and Billy Napier of Florida.

Both can move a step closer to bowl eligibility with a victory on Saturday.

LSU has won three straight in the series and seven of the last nine contests against the Gators.

The Gators are playing their sixth home game in seven weeks and stand at 4-1 in the Swamp this season. 

Northwestern State (2-4, 2-0) will look for a better start when they kick off at Houston Christian (2-3, 1-1) at 6 p.m. Saturday at Husky Stadium.
The game can be seen on ESPN+ and heard on www.NSUDemons.com or through the Northwestern State Athletics mobile app, which can be downloaded free for Apple and Android devices.

Success in one-score games against Houston Christian has been a constant for Northwestern State, which leads the all-time series 4-1.
All four of the Demons’ wins have been by four or fewer points, including a two-game season sweep in 2021 by four points each time – 21-17 Oct. 9 in Houston and 28-24 in NSU’s home finale Nov. 6.
