? Oregon at UCLA or Kansas State at Nebraska
ABC 3:30 PM
Attention, Heisman voters. Depending on which part of the country you live in, you're guaranteed to see at least one of the leading contenders for the trophy this afternoon: Nebraska senior quarterback Eric Crouch, or UCLA senior running back DeShaun Foster and Oregon senior quarterback Joey Harrington. If that trio doesn't satisfy your Heisman jones, this evening you can catch Florida sophomore quarterback Rex Grossman, whose Gators go against South Carolina ( ESPN, 7:30 p.m.).
?State Farm Tip-Off Classic
ESPN 1 PM AND ESPN2 3:30 PM
The pigskin-crazed Sooner Nation might soon want to redirect its gaze beyond the football field. The women's college basketball season tips off at Duke's Cameron Indoor Stadium with a doubleheader in which Oklahoma—a preseason top 5 team thanks to the nation's best backcourt of senior guards Stacey Dales (a player of the year candidate) and LaNeishea Caufield—takes on Purdue, last year's runner-up for the NCAA crown. In the opener Duke hopes to exploit its home court advantage against Bob Knight's new favorite women's team, Texas Tech.
? Ravens at Titans
ABC 9 PM
The last time these AFC Central rivals met—on Oct. 7 in Baltimore—Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher told his players to bring two-by-fours because the Titans were going to "lay some wood" on the Ravens. That pregame speech produced a wooden 26-7 loss to the defending Super Bowl champions. With a 3-4 record and Tennessee's playoff hopes as shaky as Robert Downey Jr.'s acting career, Fisher this time should order the Titans to bring some offense.
?Flyers at Rangers
ESPN 8 PM
In the annals of annulments, the split between Eric Lindros (above) and Philadelphia ranks just below the no-holds-barred divorce depicted in the 1989 Michael Douglas-Kathleen Turner film The War of the Roses. After a perpetual sparring match with Flyers general manager Bob Clarke (during which Lindros, a bruising 6'4" center, demanded a trade to his hometown Maple Leafs) and a season away from the ice following his sixth concussion in 27 months, the six-time All-Star was dealt to New York for right wing Pavel Brendl, left wing Jan Hlavac and defenseman Kim Johnsson. So far Lindros on Broadway has played to decent reviews; through Sunday he had 12 points in 15 games. Tonight he will face his old club for the first time in a game that promises to be as contentious as an episode of Divorce Court.
