Today's Games

The Baltimore Sun

No. 4 Florida (10-1) @ Florida State (6-5)

Where -- Tallahassee, Fla.

When -- Noon

TV -- Chs. 2, 7

Outlook -- Both teams have been able to keep opposing running games under control; the Gators are allowing only 84 ground yards per game over the past three games, while the Seminoles have been able to limit foes to 86.7 yards per game in the same span. Florida State will re-install Drew Weatherford as its quarterback, while WR Dallas Baker, LB Brandon Siler, LB Earl Everett and DE Jarvis Moss return to the Florida lineup.

No. 12 Boise State (11-0) @ Nevada (8-3)

Where -- Reno, Nev.

When -- 4:15 p.m.


Outlook -- The Broncos, still pursuing a berth in a Bowl Championship Series bowl, got a lift when TB Ian Johnson was cleared to play despite having two cracked ribs. Johnson averages 133 yards per game and has 21 touchdowns. The Wolf Pack has won eight of its past 10 games and is the current national leader in turnover margin. But its top rusher, Robert Hubbard, is nursing an ankle injury.

No. 6 Notre Dame (10-1) @ No. 3 USC (9-1)

Where -- Los Angeles

When -- 8 p.m.

TV -- Chs. 2, 7

Outlook -- John David Booty has thrown only one interception and taken two sacks in the past three games for Southern California, which has a 19-0 record in November during Pete Carroll's tenure as coach. Trojans WR Dwayne Jarrett suffered a concussion in the team's win over California, but will play. Irish QB Brady Quinn has 32 touchdown passes against five interceptions, but has had a spotty history in this matchup.
