Yet Duke, which cracked the AP Poll at No. 25 on Sunday for the first time since 1994, has not yet reached the same level of national relevance as Baylor. The Bears are potentially playing for more than just a Big 12 title. Briles' team closed the gap on No. 3 Ohio State in the latest BCS standings (Baylor actually overtook the Buckeyes at No. 3 in the latest AP Poll) and would likely move ahead of the Buckeyes with a road win on Saturday over the Cowboys, who are ranked No. 10 in the BCS.
• Arizona State at UCLA, Saturday (7 p.m. ET): This one will likely decide the Pac-12 South. While Sun Devils quarterback Kelly has passed for 2,838 yards with 24 touchdowns, the start of this game is UCLA two-way standout Jack. The linebacker and part-time running back has five rushing touchdowns in the last two weeks.
