Cupcake Wars: What Last Happened to Ole Miss Before the Battle of the Somme?

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

Cupcake games: Athletics directors love the sugary sweet treats but fans despise them. So we're not going to give the teams that play them credit in our previews, instead offering a fun fact about the cupcake in question. Consider it our silent and likely futile protest

South Alabama vs. Tennessee, 12:21 p.m. ET, SECTVNETWORKJEFFERSONPILOT
Tennessee is apparently a part of this year's "Running with the Jags" package, putting the Volunteers in the illustrious company of Navy, Tulane and Georgia State. The natives seem somewhat more interested in going to New Orleans than Knoxville for reasons that appear to be self-explanatory. Tennessee 34, South Alabama 3

Arkansas State vs. Missouri, 7:30 p.m. ET, CSS
The Red Wolves will have you know that they have defeated two members of the SEC before they were members of the SEC. Granted, one of those was Ole Miss in 1915, two years before the United States entered World War I. But everybody has a down century every once in a while, right? Missouri 47, Arkansas State 19

UAB vs. Vanderbilt, 7:30 p.m. ET, FSN
Guess who gave them their first win as a member of the FBS. No, not Vanderbilt.

Two weeks after opening the season and playing their first game as a Division I-A member, UAB posts its first victory at the I-A level, defeating Arkansas State, 42-17.

It's like all connected, y'all. Vanderbilt 37, UAB 7
