IDAHO AT TROY

8:15 P.M. CT

SATURDAY, NOV. 4

LSU at Alabama

TBD

CHECK OUT Troy versus Idaho to get a peek at two potential NFLers. Troy's 6'1", 235-pound senior running back Jordan Chunn (1,288 yards in 2016) may be the best rusher in the Sun Belt conference while Vandals senior quarterback Matt Linehan (right)—son of Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Scott—finished '16 with 3,184 passing yards and a completion percentage of 61.9. It's also Idaho's last season in the FBS, so there's that.

While in Troy hit Butter and Egg Adventures, an outdoor park with a massive zip-lining course. If that's not your speed, try the Pioneer Museum of Alabama before you head out of town. It's less than a three-hour drive to Tuscaloosa.

LSU AT ALABAMA

As is often the case when the Tigers meet the Tide, there will almost certainly be national-title implications. LSU will be coming off a bye and a game at Ole Miss, while Alabama will have had a fairly easy ride after opening against Florida State. Should be fun.

While in Tuscaloosa, check out the Paul W. Bryant Museum, which showcases (guess what?) the history of Alabama football. Then hit the road. First head to Vicksburg, Miss., one of the most significant sites of the Civil War. From there it's slightly more than three hours to New Orleans. Get a po'boy at Domilise's and have dinner at Galatoire's or Jacques-Imo's. Grab beignets at Cafe Du Monde for breakfast. Spend a couple of days before setting off on the seven-hour trek to College Station, Texas.
