1 2 3 4
Tennessee leads this one 3-0 as the second quarter begins. Typical of Tennessee, they start slow but expect a blowout in the late minutes of this one. (Update: Tennessee now leads 10-0 at the half).
3:30 PM ET
(24) Georgia Tech (3-1, 1-0 ACC)
(11) Virginia Tech (4-0, 2-0 ACC)
Georgia Tech may be better than their ranking indicates, so expect a closer game than what might otherwise appear-especially since neither team has lost an ACC game yet.
2:30 PM ET
Purdue (4-0, 1-0 Big Ten)
(12) Notre Dame (3-1, 1-1 home)
After last week's remarkable comeback victory over Michigan State, Coach Charlie Weis and quarterback Brady Quinn look to blowout Purdue at home today. Notre Dame actually needs a blowout in order to move up in the polls and hope for a longshot at the national title. One more loss and Notre Dame's title hopes are finished.
8:00 PM ET
(1) Ohio State (4-0, 1-0 Big Ten)
(13) Iowa (4-0, 1-0 Big Ten)
This is the prime time game on ABC tonight and they couldn't have picked a better contest. Not only is it a battle of undefeated teams, but it is a battle of two of the best quarterbacks in college football right now; Ohio State's Troy Smith, a Heisman contender, and Iowa's Drew Tate, a Texas native who has had a stellar career for the Hawkeyes. This game will decide first place in the Big Ten, but it will also likely determine whether Ohio State plays for a national title. Make plenty of your favorite snack foods, because this one just might go into a late night overtime.
