Spearheaded by the students, the Buffs are planning a blackout Thursday night for the national television cameras coming to town. Having executed the game plan in 2007 for a game against Florida State, the Boulderites will watch Cody Hawkins, the son of coach Dan Hawkins, try to maintain his early-season success (71.6 completion percentage, 475 yards, four touchdowns) against West Virginia.

There's no D in Tempe -- with four sacks and three interceptions in three games, the Sun Devils rank No. 90 in total defense. With No. 2 Georgia and tailback Knowshon Moreno traveling cross country to Tempe Saturday, the locals better batten down the hatches and hope for a repeat of the performance against Stanford rather than last Saturday's happenings against UNLV.

The 'Noles, who continue to ride under the radar in the much-derided ACC, outscored Western Carolina and Chattanooga by a combined 115-7, but getting fat off nonconference cupcakes does not reveal much of FSU's potential. Enter Wake Forest, the nation's No. 20 team, which rallied for a late field goal to beat Ole Miss last week. At home in Tallahassee, we should definitely learn something about FSU Saturday.
