? Virginia (3-1) at Virginia Tech (3-0)
The Hokies defense has scored 16 points, five less than the 21 it has allowed (and seven of those 21 came on a fake field goal). If Cavaliers tailback Thomas Jones finds some holes against this bunch, he'll leap into the Heisman race. We'll bet that Heisman front-runners Peter Warrick, Drew Brees and Joe Hamilton aren't losing sleep. Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer shouldn't either. His Hokies will remain unbeaten for another week.
? Texas A&M (3-0) at Texas Tech (1-2)
Based on talent alone, the Aggies should romp, but funny things happen to Texas A&M at Texas Tech. The Aggies last won there in 1993 and have lost four of their last six games at Jones Stadium. Times change. Last season Texas A&M beat a Top 10 team for the first time since 1989. This week the Aggies should slay a demon closer to home.
? Marshall (4-0) at Miami of Ohio (3-1)
The power of the MAC, like that of the Ming Dynasty and the SEC, is located in the East. That's where the Thundering Herd and the RedHawks reside. Marshall fell 45-21 at Yager Stadium two years ago, in Randy Moss's sophomore season; Miami's Travis Prentice, then a sophomore, rushed for 203 yards and four touchdowns. It will take that kind of RedHawks effort for a repeat upset, but don't count on it.
