? Miami at Syracuse
?Florida at Florida State
ESPN 6:30 PM; ABC 8 PM
The battle between the Seminoles and the Hurricanes for second place in the Bowl Championship Series standings—and a berth in the national tide game—has been the tightest, most confusing race contested in Florida since, well, you know. Miami, which barely leads Florida State in the BCS computations, has a much easier opponent today, but the Seminoles have one advantage: By halftime of their game they should know how the Hurricanes did, meaning they'll know how much they'll have to win by if they want to impress the pollsters.
? PGA Grand Slam of Golf
TNT 8 PM
In a perfect world Tiger Woods, who in 2000 became the first man in 47 years to win three Grand Slam events, would be the victor in this tournament and Ernie Els, who became the first man to finish second in three consecutive majors, would be runner-up. Alas, Els, citing a scheduling conflict, declined an invitation to compete. Paul Azinger and Tom Lehman join Woods and 2000 Masters champion Vijay Singh in this made-for-TV event from Kauai that concludes at the same time on Wednesday.
?Raptors at Pacers
TNT 8 PM
This turkey-night tilt serves up plenty to be thankful for. There's the presence of Pacers point guard Travis Best, an emerging star, and the probable absence of obnoxious, high-profile, visiting-team fans for Indiana shooting guard Reggie Miller to jaw with. We won't be giving thanks for lame wordplays combining stuffing and Vince Carter.
?Jets at Dolphins
CBS 4 PM
It's going to be awfully hard for the Jets to surprise the Dolphins and quarterback Jay Fiedler (above) today. When the teams last met, on Oct. 23, Vinny Testaverde became the third quarterback to throw four touchdowns in the fourth quarter of a game, allowing New York to overcome a 23-point deficit and win 40-37 in overtime. Three of the touchdowns were caught by players who had never scored, including 305-pound tackle Jumbo Elliott. Having spent their arsenal of secret weapons, the Jets probably will rely more on conventional threats, such as running back Curtis Martin, as they look to get back into the race for the AFC East top spot.
ALL TIMES EASTERN. SCHEDULES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
