St. Augustine’s (3-2, 1-1 CIAA) at Livingstone (2-3, 2-0 CIAA), 2 p.m., Salisbury

Will Livingstone kick or punt to Tyrone Laughinghouse? The Falcons’ standout ran back two returns for touchdowns last week as part of a 200-yard return day against Elizabeth City State.

Shaw (2-3, 1-1 CIAA) vs. Fayetteville State (1-4, 0-2 CIAA), 1 p.m., Durham County Memorial Stadium

Shaw erased a 16-point deficit in the final five minutes to win in overtime last year. Saturday’s game could be determined by which team controls the airways. FSU defensive back Joshua Scales will try to slow down Shaw QB James Stallons (1,377 yards, 6 TDs).

N.C. Central (2-2, 1-0 MEAC) vs. S.C. State (2-3, 1-1 MEAC), 2:30 p.m., Indianapolis

N.C. Central has had an extra week to prepare for what should be another offensive show in the Circle City Classic. S.C. State has won the past seven in the series, including 49-38 last season in which the teams combined for more than 1,000 yards. The game is at Lucas Oil Stadium, site of last year’s Super Bowl.

No. 14 Appalachian State (3-2, 1-1 SoCon) vs. Elon (2-3, 0-2 SoCon), 3:30 p.m., Boone

ASU WR Sean Price continues to turn heads – and not just defensive backs he’s running past. Price is one of 16 FCS players nominated for the Jerry Rice Award, which goes to the top freshman. Price is averaging 120 receiving yards per game and has 5 TDs in three games.
