•FLORIDA (5-1) AT AUBURN (6-0)
The scent of Gator blood is in the air at Jordan-Hare Stadium. So are the cries of "War Dam-eyune Eagle!" in honor of quarterback Dameyune Craig. LSU got payback against Florida last week, and Craig (7 for 28, 82 yards, two interceptions in last year's 51-10 loss) plans to do the same. The Gators haven't lost consecutive SEC games in five years, but history may be no match for their injuries and another hostile crowd.
•TEXAS A&M (5-0) AT KANSAS STATE (4-1)
Two stylish records in search of substance. Can the Aggies win a big game on the road? Yes, thanks to running backs Danté Hall and Sirr Parker, who between them average 197.6 yards and two touchdowns per game. What chance might they have in a Big 12 title game against Nebraska, which beat the Wildcats by 30? None.
•GEORGIA TECH (4-1) AT FLORIDA STATE (5-0)
The Yellow Jackets—tough in body and mind—can give the Seminoles the sort of test that will steel them for upcoming trips to Virginia and North Carolina. Best matchup: Tech wide receiver Harvey Middleton (23 receptions, 421 yards) against the Florida State secondary. We'll take corners Samari Rolle and Tay Cody.
•WISCONSIN (6-1) AT PURDUE (4-1)
The winner can pretend to contend for a Rose Bowl berth for the rest of October. Pretend? Yes—though both teams have made great progress since embarrassing opening losses, neither has beaten anyone with more than two victories. But a healthy Ron Dayne (947 yards) has changed Wisconsin's outlook on the postseason: After they win this game, the Badgers qualify for a bowl.
