The opportunities are few and far between, but the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga will have a chance for a top-10 football win without having to leave the Southern Conference.

The third-ranked Mocs, 4-0 in the league and the only team in the Football Championship Subdivision with a 6-0 record, will face No. 8 The Citadel (5-0, 3-0) Saturday in Charleston, S.C. It will be the first matchup of top-10 teams in the SoCon since seventh-ranked Georgia Southern defeated fourth-ranked Wofford 17-9 on Oct.
