Nebraska (7-3) @ No. 24 Texas A&M; (8-2)

Site -- College Station, Texas


Time -- 3:30p.m.

TV -- ESPN GamePlan


Line -- Nebraska by 1

Outlook -- Although the Aggies have the better record, it's the Cornhuskers who still have a shot at winning the Big 12. Nebraska could seal a berth in the league's championship game and a possible bid in a Bowl Championship Series matchup.

No. 13 Tennessee (7-2) @ No. 11 Arkansas (8-1)

Site -- Fayetteville, Ark.

Time -- 7 p.m.


Line -- Arkansas by 6

Outlook -- The Razorbacks' smacking of No. 5 Auburn might be the most impressive in the SEC to date, but when the subject of the league's national contenders comes up, Auburn and No. 6 Florida tend to be first in line. Tennessee provides the first of two golden opportunities for Arkansas (followed by LSU).


No. 18 Wake Forest (8-1) @ Florida State (5-4)

Site -- Tallahassee, Fla.

Time -- 8 p.m.

TV -- Chs. 2, 7

Line -- Florida State by 8 1/2

Outlook -- As great as the Demon Deacons story is, a win would be overshadowed by the fall of Florida State, which has won the past 14 games in this series. The Seminoles are favored in this game mainly because of that streak and the belief that they'll eventually wake up, as they did in last weekend's 33-0 win over Virginia, but the hapless Cavaliers are a poor barometer.


No. 21 Oregon (7-2) @ No. 7 USC (7-1)

Site -- Los Angeles

Time -- 10:30 p.m.

TV -- Comcast SportsNet

Line -- Southern California by 8 1/2

Outlook -- After a chip shot of a game at Stanford, the Trojans finally start the meat of their schedule against the Ducks, followed by two more home games against No. 8 California and No. 9 Notre Dame. Oregon could use a first-rate victory to confirm the quality of its season, as its best win was the quasi-tarnished game against Oklahoma.
