? Oregon (9-1) at Oregon State (9-1)
The Ducks have won one nail-biter after another, while the Beavers have steadily gotten stronger. A win won't put Oregon State in the Rose Bowl unless Washington loses to Washington State. Even if that doesn't happen, ruining the Ducks' unbeaten league record and knocking them out of Pasadena will be sweet.
? Florida (9-1) at Florida State (10-1)
A victory over fourth-ranked Florida would boost Florida State's BCS rating and put it back ahead of Miami in the race for a berth in the national championship game. The Seminoles have better talent than the Gators, more of it and the nation's longest home winning streak: 34 games. Make it 35.
? South Carolina (7-3) at Clemson (8-2)
The cross-state rivals both come into Death Valley with two-game losing streaks. The Tigers, with two weeks to rest and recharged after their 54-7 loss at Florida State, will be sharper than the Gamecocks.
? Michigan (7-3) at Ohio State (8-2)
You say John Cooper can't beat the Wolverines? The Buckeyes have defeated Michigan two of the last three times the teams have met at Ohio Stadium. The Buckeyes have an edge in special teams, particularly in placekicking: Senior Dan Stultz has made 17 of 21 field goals this fall, including a last-second, 34-yard game-winning kick last Saturday at Illinois. Just what the Wolverines need—their third last-minute loss of the year.
