Washington State at Baylor.
Hurrican Ike moving this game forward a day adds a wild-card emement to game between two of the worst BCS teams in the country. But the Bears at least have a taste of what winning feels like. And perhaps the disruptions affect the traveling team more. Baylor, 21-20.
No. 5 Ohio State at No. 1 Southern California. Buckeyes' struggles took some luster off this "game of the year." USC, 30-20.
UNLV at No. 15 Arizona State. Sun Devils mustn't look ahead to Georgia. ASU, 43-17.
No. 16 Oregon at Purdue. Lots of offense, lots of entertainment. Ducks, 42-37.
UCLA at No. 18 Brigham Young. Rubber match of three meetings in 53 weeks. Cougars, 24-21.
No. 23 California at Maryland. Kickoff at 9 a.m. body time for Bears. Cal, 31-24.
Hawaii at Oregon State. Both teams longing for last season. Beavers, 31-28.
Stanford at TCU. Should learn something about Cardinal – and Pac-10 – here. Frogs, 31-20.
Arizona at New Mexico. QB Tuitama dominating weak defenses. And the Wildcats have proven their ability to dominate teams whose name ends in "o" (Idaho, Toledo). Wildcats, 43-27.
No. 3 Oklahoma at Washington. There's a lot of talent in among the UW underclassmen. But some of their learning might not be pretty. And in Oklahoma they are facing a team that's probably about as good as any in the country. It's a test that seems far beyond the Huskies' current state of development. Sooners, 49-17.
Last week: 6-0
