The top 10 matchup between Florida and FSU highlights the local college football action on Saturday.

Al Messerschmidt

There's a full day of college football action across Florida Saturday, including universities big and small. Kickoff times and television coverage (where available) for all the local games is below. All times are Eastern.

No. 4 Florida Gators at No. 10 Florida St. Seminoles
The biggest matchup of the weekend is the Gators/'Noles rivalry. Jeff Driskel is back for Florida after missing the team's game against Jacksonville State. He'll be facing the fifth-ranked defense in the nation, which gives up an average of just 13.1 points per game. Florida's defense tops that, ranked third with 11.7 points against per game, but the Seminole offense has significantly more firepower. Florida lost to FSU in Will Muschamp's first year, and the Seminoles will give everything they have to keep that goose egg intact.
Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on ABC.

Miami Hurricanes at Duke Blue Devils
Both teams are 6-5, so a win means an above-.500 season. With their self-imposed postseason ban, that honor is about all Miami has to fight for. Duke is on a three-game skid, having lost to Florida State, Clemson and Georgia Tech. They gave up a combined 146 points in those three losses, and Duke's offense wasn't able to bail them out in any of those games. Expect both sides of the ball to have something to prove.
Kickoff is at 12:30 p.m. with coverage on the ACC Network

UAB Blazers at Central Florida Knights
The Knights are 8-3 and sit one game out of the top spot in Conference-USA East. They need a win to even think about the C-USA title, and they'll also need a loss from the East Carolina Pirates. UAB is 3-8 and has particularly struggled on defense, where they're ranked 110th in the country. The Knights approach the game as favorites, but playing spoiler to their chances might put something behind the Blazers.
Kickoff is at 12 p.m.

Bethune Cookman Wildcats at Coast Carolina Chanticleers
At 9-2, the Wildcats are in no danger of giving up the top spot in the MEAC. A 10-win season is undoubtedly a goal, as is ending on a high note. The 7-4 Chanticleers stand in their way and are on a streak of their own. They've won five games in a row, scoring an average of 46.1 points in those victories.
Kickoff is at 2 p.m. with television coverage provided by ESPN3.

LA-Monroe Warhawks at Florida International Golden Panthers
The Panthers have won two straight and have a chance to end the season on that upswing after spending the middle of the season on a seven-game losing streak. The 7-4 Warhawks are no small challenge for the Panthers, averaging over 300 yards per game through the air and more than 150 on the ground. Defense hasn't been FIU's strength, so the players will have their work cut out for them.
Kickoff is at 6 p.m.
