? Florida (2-0) at Tennessee (1-0)
The Vols have redshirt freshman A.J. Suggs playing quarterback. The Gators have true freshman Travis Harris at middle linebacker. In other words these aren't the glory days of this rivalry. Harris notwithstanding, the Florida defense has too much speed and experience for Tennessee's youthful offense to overcome.
? Michigan (2-0) at UCLA (2-0)
Wolverines freshman quarterback John Navarre has filled in nicely for the injured Drew Henson, but can he survive his first big game on the road? Yep, because Michigan, led by senior tailback Anthony Thomas, is rushing for 289 yards per game. Bruins quarterback Ryan McCann, who came off the bench to lead UCLA past Alabama on Sept. 2, struggled against Fresno State. Two upsets in three weeks by the Bruins is too much to ask.
? Washington (2-0) at Colorado (0-2)
When he replaced Rick Neuheisel in the winter of 1999, Colorado coach Gary Barnett coined the slogan Return to dominance, but there has been no revival so far. The crowd will be fired up for Neuheisel's first trip back to Boulder, but that won't be enough.
? Purdue (2-0) at Notre Dame (1-1)
The Cornhuskers beat the Irish, and they beat them up. Starting senior defensive end Grant Irons (separated shoulder) and quarterback Arnaz Battle (broken wrist) won't play. Notre Dame won't score enough points to keep up with Drew Brees and Co.
