Missouri

AVAILABILITY: 9 a.m. to noon

COACH: Gary Pinkel

PLAYERS: Junior C Evan Boehm, senior DE Markus Golden, sophomore QB Maty Mauk

QUESTION PINKEL IS SURE TO FACE: With QB James Franklin gone, sophomore stud Maty Mauk will be the primary signal-caller. But after being successful in limited time last season, he’ll be without star receiver Dorial Green-Beckham, who was thrown off the team in April after he allegedly shoved a woman down a flight of stairs. Can Mauk build off his 2013 success without having Green-Beckham to throw to?

LSU

AVAILABILITY: 1 to 4 p.m.

COACH: Les Miles

PLAYERS: Senior T La’el Collins, senior RB Terrence Magee, senior LB D.J. Welter

QUESTION MILES IS SURE TO FACE: LSU lost four offensive stars — QB Zach Mettenberger, WRs Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry and RB Jeremy Hill — to the NFL. With sophomore Anthony Jennings and freshman Brandon Harris battling for Mettenberger’s old job, offensive coordinator Cam Cameron has quite a task ahead of him. How can the freshmen — RB Leonard Fournette and WRs Malachi Dupre and Trey Quinn — make an impact to help a young QB rise to stardom in Death Valley?

Arkansas

AVAILABILITY: 1 to 4 p.m.

COACH: Bret Bielema

PLAYERS: Senior G Brey Cook, senior DE Trey Flowers, senior S Alan Turner

QUESTION BIELEMA IS SURE TO FACE: There is nowhere to go but up for a Razorbacks squad that finished 3-9 and went winless in SEC play last season. That being said, there were positives to take: Running backs Alex Collins and Jonathan Williams combined for 1,926 yards and eight rushing touchdowns. Now the passing attack, which ranked 117th in the nation, is looking to pull its weight with senior receiver Demetrius Wilson back in the mix. Is his presence enough to bring Arkansas back to contention?
