? Penn State (3-0) at Ohio State (3-0)
In two Big Ten games at the Horseshoe, the Nittany Lions haven't scored a touchdown against the Buckeyes' first-team defense. So far this year Penn State has provided no reason to believe that trend will change. Look for Ohio State to regain some of the six first-place votes it lost to Nebraska in last week's poll.
? Georgia (3-0) at LSU (3-0)
It's a lot to ask of Georgia freshman quarterback Quincy Carter that he excel in Tiger Stadium at night, when 80,000 fans and the Death Valley ghosts come out. But the Bulldogs, who have been operating quietly in the shadow cast by Tennessee, still should win, because recently LSU hasn't handled success well. In 1996 the 4-0 Tigers lost at Florida 56-13. A year ago a 5-1 Louisiana State team fresh off a 28-21 upset of the Gators lost to Ole Miss 36-21. If Tigers quarterback Herb Tyler wants to prove he can win a must game, and if LSU tailback Kevin Faulk wants to contend for the Heisman Trophy, now's the time.
? Arizona (4-0) at Washington (2-1)
It's bad enough that the Huskies once again were humiliated by Nebraska. It's worse that they must come home, physically and mentally beaten, and prepare for the hottest team in the West. The 14th-ranked Wildcats, winners of eight straight, will make it nine in preparation for UCLA's visit to Tucson on Oct. 10.
? Indiana (2-1) over Wisconsin (4-0)
Give a Hoosier fan any hope at all and Memorial Stadium becomes a tough place to play. Redshirt freshman quarterback Antwaan Randle El has provided plenty of hope. He combines mobility and a good arm—two weapons the Badgers don't care to face. Wisconsin's muscle-up attack, led by tailback Ron Dayne, won't be enough.
