Week 3 preview: SEC West heats up with 2 top early matchups

The Southeastern Conference’s West Division commands the spotlight Saturday, with top-ranked Alabama opening league play at Mississippi, and No. 7 Auburn hosting No. 12 LSU.

There are two nonconference games involving Top 25 teams. No. 4 Ohio State plays No. 15 TCU at ATT Stadium in Arlington, Texas, and No. 17 Boise State travels to No. 24 Oklahoma State.
