?Arizona at Oregon
FOX SPORTS NET 10:15 PM
It's Revenge of the Nerds, which was filmed in Tucson, versus Animal House, which was made in Eugene. For years the Wildcats (No. 21, 5-1) and the Ducks (No. 7, also 5-1) were the Tri-Lambdas and the Delta House of the Pac-10, respectively. Oregon has been to two Rose Bowls in the past half century; Arizona, which joined the conference in 1978, has yet to play a postseason game in Pasadena. That may change come Jan. 1. The conference coleaders meet at Autzen Stadium, where the Ducks, led by junior quarterback Joey Harrington, have won 18 straight. Did somebody say, "Quack-10"?
?Presidents Cup, Final Round
NBC 10 AM
Did that golfer say, "Fore!" or "Gore!"? (Equal-time rules obligate us to say that driving a tee shot into a bush may be the nadir of someone's round.) The even-numbered year alternative to the Ryder Cup pits 12 of the U.S.'s best, among them Tiger Woods, David Duval and Notah Begay III, against an equal number of the world's top non-Europeans. Today's competition from Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Va., will consist exclusively of singles matches.
? Dolphins at Jets
ABC 9 PM
So swiftly does the defense of Miami (5-1) converge on quarterbacks that we wonder if we aren't witnessing a Georgia Tech punitive drill. Ends Trace Armstrong and Jason Taylor already have 10 and five sacks, respectively, for a Dolphins D that has allowed only one more touchdown (three) than it has scored.

New York? New York? As of Monday, unless the Mariners were to spoil the scenario, a Subway Series between the Yankees and the Mets (and Robin Ventura, above) seemed likely, maybe even more likely than the listed ages of Yankee Orlando (El Duque) Hernandez (31, though some say he's 35) and Met Timo Perez (23, but rumored to be as old as 31). It has been 44 years since two Big Apple teams met in the Fall Classic. That one, in '56, is best remembered for Yankee Don Larsen's perfect game against the Brooklyn Dodgers. If you remember the Brooklyn Dodgers, you're even older than El Duque./
