Mike Morgan and Kevin Weidl will be on the call Saturday as the SEC Network televises Kentucky’s quest for a sixth victory as the Cats play host to winless Austin Peay at Commonwealth Stadium. Kickoff is 4:30 p.m.

A University of Florida graduate now based in Atlanta, Morgan has called college football games for ESPN since 2009. He was the voice of South Carolina baseball and basketball for 10 years in Columbia before moving to Atlanta.

Weidl is former quarterback at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (2002-06) who is now an NFL draft and college football analyst for ESPN. The network’s Todd McShay, who was a friend of Weidl’s brother, enlisted Kevin to help scout the draft.

As for the marquee games, the pickings are a bit slim this weekend. In a twist, the SEC Network has the best conference game, the 1 p.m. Florida-LSU contest in Baton Rouge. That’s the game rescheduled and site changed from earlier this year when a hurricane postponed the game in Gainesville. CBS has Missouri at Tennessee at 3:30 p.m.

Over on Fox, Washington State travels to Colorado for a meeting of two 8-2 teams. Mike Leach’s team started 0-2 overall, but Washington State is now a perfect 7-0 in the Pac-12. Colorado is 6-1 in the conference.

At 7 p.m., ESPN has Clemson at Wake Forest. A Clemson victory clinches a division title for the Tigers and knocks Louisville out of the ACC title game. The Cards were shocked 36-10 at Houston on Thursday night. But how will Clemson respond to last week’s loss to Pittsburgh?

At 8 p.m., ABC has an important Big 12 battle when Oklahoma (8-2) travels to West Virginia (8-1). Oklahoma is 7-0 in the conference. West Virginia is 5-1.

At 10:30, USC is at UCLA. The Trojans, who upset Washington, are playing as well as nearly any team in the nation right now. USC is 7-3 overall and 6-2 in the Pac-12. UCLA has suffered through a disappointing 4-6 season.
