? Miami (2-2) at Florida State (5-0)
By any measure of Hurricane strength, it's obvious that Miami didn't pack much punch in its last visit to Tallahassee two years ago. It lost 47-0, and the game wasn't that close. Coach Butch Davis has restored enough of the old Hurricanes spirit to make the emotion of this rivalry a factor again, and Miami benefits from having had two weeks to prepare. The Hurricanes still won't have enough to overcome the Seminoles' defensive depth and offensive magic, but they should make it interesting.
? Michigan (5-0, 2-0) at Michigan St. (5-0, 2-0)
Like the Hurricanes, the Spartans would like to make their cross-state rivalry interesting again. Michigan State hasn't stirred this much excitement since, well, two years ago, when it won its first five games and took a 5-1 record into the Michigan game. The Wolverines won 23-7 and went on to win a share of the national championship. This Michigan team has similar promise. If the Spartans' sixth-year tailback, Lloyd demons, gets some room to run, their terrific defensive front will keep the game close. The hunch is that Spartans coach Nick Saban will end his three-game losing streak against the Wolverines' Lloyd Carr.
? Georgia (4-0, 2-0) at Tennessee (3-1, 1-1)
Unhappy people tend to find one another, don't they? The Bulldogs are trying to figure out why they've won each of their last two games, against Central Florida and LSU, by one point. The Vols are trying to rediscover the swagger they had a year ago, when they went into Athens and triumphed 22-3. Nothing like a fierce rivalry to sharpen a team's focus. As coach Jim Donnan has rebuilt the Dawgs, this game has taken on added weight, but Neyland Stadium is no place for a young Georgia team to discover how to win the big game. Tennessee will remain on Florida's tail in the SEC East.
