    [​IMG]My predictions are on the way tomorrow morning, but let's hear yours in the comments. Here's what you can watch on Saturday (all times ET):

    UCF at Kansas State (Fox Sports Net, 12:30 p.m.) Kansas State's 3-0 start has been just what it asked for. Running back Daniel Thomas has done perhaps even more than what he's been asked to do and sounds ready to do more. This should be another game for quarterback Carson Coffman to gain some confidence and give the Wildcats some more versatility.

    Miami (OH) at Missouri (2 p.m.) All heroics aside, here's guessing Missouri would like to dispatch its opponent a bit earlier this week. The Redhawks have already doubled their win total from 2009, winning two of their first three games. Worth noting: They beat Colorado State by three touchdowns, just like Colorado did.

    UCLA at No. 7 Texas (3:30 p.m., ABC) UCLA rebounded from a disappointing start to beat Houston convincingly last week. Case Keenum tore his ACL, but the Bruins were ahead before the injury.

    No. 8 Oklahoma at Cincinnati (6 p.m., ESPN2) Oklahoma's first road test of the season comes against the flailing Bearcats who have two double-digit road losses to unranked teams and a win over Indiana State.

    Northern Iowa at Iowa State (7 p.m.) Iowa State (1-2, 0-1) has to win every game it's favored in to keep bowl hopes alive. This is one of them. Last season, the Panthers lost by at point at Iowa on a blocked field goal, where Iowa State has been blown out the past two seasons.

    South Dakota State at No. 6 Nebraska (7 p.m., pay-per-view) Bo Pelini doesn't have plans to continue scheduling games with FCS opponents. This should be a short night for Taylor Martinez.

    New Mexico State at Kansas (7 p.m.) The 1-2 Jayhawks already learned to take nothing for granted, but these Aggies are losers of their last eight games.

    Baylor at Rice (CBS College Sports, 8 p.m.) After last week, Baylor won't get another chance to earn some respect until conference play. But games like this one are necessary to end the bowl drought.

    Idle: Colorado, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Texas Tech
