Nebraska's comeback from a 27--6 deficit against Ohio State could give much-needed momentum to coach Bo Pelini, who's been losing the confidence of Cornhuskers fans. QB Taylor Martinez needs to keep making smart decisions, as he did in the second half against the Buckeyes, when he rushed for one TD and passed for two more ... . Wake Forest is sneaking back up on the ACC. Following a 35--30 upset of struggling Florida State, coach Jim Grobe's Demon Deacons—who went 28--12 from 2006 to '08, but 8--16 the last two seasons—are off to their first-ever 3--0 conference start... . Coach Mike Stoops, after an inconsistent eight-year run, is likely near the end at Arizona. Stoops rose to prominence as the defensive coordinator for his older brother Bob at Oklahoma, but the injury-riddled Wildcats (1--5) rank 115th nationally in yards allowed.
