  1. Liberty at No. 20 Alabama (9 p.m. ET, Friday, ESPN+) -- When you have two teams who could not play at more drastically different paces meeting each other, things get interesting. Alabama will run. Liberty will grind the game to a halt and let Darius McGhee cook. The 5-9 senior guard scored 17 in 17 minutes in the Flames' 104-38 win over NCCAA Regent University. McGhee scored 30 or more 5 times last season, including a 41-point game that nearly helped Liberty top Stanford and then a 48-pointer in the Flames' win at Florida Gulf Coast.
