The Missouri Tigers are still seeking their first in-conference win in the SEC. This weekend, they get the pleasure of going for that task by hosting the No. 1 team in the country.
The top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide visit Mizzou on Saturday in an afternoon game televised nationally by CBS. The Tigers will be facing the nation's No. 1 defense without starting quarterback James Franklin, making a tall task even more difficult. Missouri is coming off a 19-15 home loss to Vanderbilt while Alabama is returning to the field after an open week.
Elsewhere, Kansas State looks to stay unbeaten against the surprising Iowa State Cyclones Saturday morning on FX while the Kansas Jayhawks and Oklhoma State Cowboys look for their first Big 12 wins of the season against each other.
Here is this weekend's local college football TV schedule. All times are Central:
Oklahoma State at Kansas, 2:30 p.m., FSN
Kansas State at Iowa State, 11 a.m., FX
Alabama at Missouri, 2:30 p.m., CBS
