? Michigan (3-0) at Wisconsin (2-1)
Badgers running back Ron Dayne has averaged 174.6 yards and scored five touchdowns in games against Murray State, Ball State and Cincinnati. Wisconsin's next three games are against the toughest rushing defenses on their schedule, those of Michigan, Ohio State and Minnesota. Dayne has 16 rushes for 53 yards in his one game against Michigan. He'll improve but not enough for Wisconsin to win.
? Arkansas (2-0) at Alabama (2-1)
Crimson Tide fans would forgive coach Mike DuBose for far more dastardly deeds than having an affair with his former secretary—something for which he has been assessed a $360,000 penalty by the university—before they'll forgive him for losing to Louisiana Tech last Saturday. This is no week to earn absolution. Nothing illustrates quite so painfully to Tide fans 'Bama's fall from its old perch atop the SEC West as the turnabout in this rivalry. The Razorbacks, who lost four of five to Alabama between 1992 and '96, have won each of their last two visits to Tuscaloosa by one point. Last season, in Fayetteville, the Hogs routed the Tide 42-6. Alabama moved its SEC games to Tuscaloosa from Birmingham to gain the emotional edge of playing on campus, but the fans DuBose is counting on to swell his Tide want to wring his neck. Alabama is unlikely to turn this mess around against Arkansas.
? Colorado (2-1) at Washington (0-2)
College fans love blood feuds. Rick Neuheisel transfused this one with plasma when he left Boulder for Seattle last January. If the Huskies don't overcome their defensive shortcomings—and Neuheisel can't teach his players to be faster and more experienced—Colorado should enjoy revenge against its former coach. Hell hath no fury like a Buffalo scorned.
? Ole Miss (2-1) at Auburn (3-0)
In the week's other postdivorce reunion, the Rebels visit the Tigers, who are guided by former Ole Miss coach Tommy Tuberville. As if Ole Miss needed another reason to play well, last Saturday the Rebels blew a 10-point lead at home and lost to Vanderbilt. It's the Tigers' turn to be humiliated.
