? Nebraska (7-0) at Oklahoma (6-0)
This game could come down to whether the Huskers can defend against the pass better than the Sooners can stop the run. Blitzing Oklahoma quarterback Josh Heupel isn't a wise move. He's in the shotgun and picks apart defenses with his quick reads. The Sooners are giving up just 101.7 rushing yards per game, but they haven't faced an offense like the Huskers', which leads the nation with an average of 379.7 rushing yards. Give the Cornhuskers the edge. They have been in more big games.
? Florida (6-1) vs. Georgia (6-1) in Jacksonville
After a three-game stretch during which they allowed 101 points, the Gators yielded a total of 16 points in wins over LSU and Auburn. The turnaround dates to when coach Steve Spurrier challenged his players with the lyrics to a Lee Ann Womack song: And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance/I hope you dance. In a game known as the world's largest outdoor cocktail party, the Gators will dance.
? Ohio State (6-1) at Purdue (6-2)
The Boilermakers have momentum after beating Northwestern two weeks ago and Wisconsin last Saturday. The Buckeyes lost their steam after being upset by Minnesota on Oct. 14. For one more week, at least, Purdue quarterback Drew Brees will continue his drive to the Rose Bowl and the Heisman Trophy.
