? Virginia Tech (8-0) at Miami (6-1)
The second-ranked Hokies had to come from behind in their last three victories and went deeper into the game each week to do so. They needed a 27-yard field goal with 16 seconds to play last Saturday to beat Pitt 37-34. Spotting the Hurricanes a lead is one of the many luxuries Virginia Tech can't afford. Quarterback Michael Vick sprained his right ankle against the Panthers, and if he plays, he will have his hands full against a blitzing Hurricanes defense. The Hokies' 19-game regular-season winning streak ends.
?Clemson (8-1) at Florida State (8-1)
Bowden Bowl II won't have the circuslike atmosphere of last year's 17-14 Florida State win, in which the Seminoles' Bobby Bowden got his 300th victory, against his son Tommy's Tigers. Clemson is coming off its first loss, and Florida State has improved every week since falling to Miami on Oct. 7. Father beats son again.
? Louisville (6-2) at Southern Miss (6-1)
If the Golden Eagles win, they'll be two games up in the Conference USA race with three to play. The Cardinals' Dave Ragone has thrown for 20 touchdowns; Southern Miss has allowed four. Defense wins titles.
? Duke (0-8) at Wake Forest (0-7)
This is the Blue Devils' only chance for a victory. The Demon Deacons have another shot on Nov. 18, against Navy. Wake will win.
