Top 10 Remaining Games
Florida at Florida State
This is the Gators' last game of the regular season, and if they're still undefeated, their national-championship aspirations will be on the line in this showdown with the Seminoles. After last season's 34-7 loss, the 'Noles will be hungry for revenge.
Tennessee at Arkansas
After last week's 27-10 upset of Auburn, the Razorbacks are alone atop the SEC West with a 3-0 record. The Hogs still have a number of tests in the second half of the season, but none look bigger than the home contest against the resurgent Volunteers.
Iowa at Michigan
If Michigan can get past Penn State this weekend, Iowa should be the Wolverines' last true test before a Nov. 18 showdown with Ohio State. But the Wolverines always struggle against Kirk Ferentz's Hawkeyes. Last season Michigan broke Iowa's 22-game home winning streak with a 23-20 overtime win.
Missouri at Nebraska
In recent years the Big 12 North has been the laughingstock of major college football. But Bill Callahan looks to be turning things around at Nebraska (5-1), and Missouri (6-0) is one of this year's biggest surprises. This face-off in Lincoln could decide the Big 12 North champ.
Georgia Tech at Clemson
Neither of the ACC's marquee teams -- Florida State and Miami -- has played as expected in the first half, leaving the conference race wide open. Georgia Tech sits atop the ACC Coastal with a 3-0 conference record, while Clemson is holding down second in the ACC Atlantic with a 3-1 mark (N.C. State has a 2-0 record). This could potentially be a preview of the ACC championship game.
Notre Dame at USC
Notre Dame fell off the national radar after its shocking 47-21 loss to Michigan, but the Irish still have only one loss and should cruise to this rivalry showdown with the Trojans. USC has beaten the Irish four straight times.
Florida at Auburn
The Gators have passed the first two challenges in a brutal four-game stretch, beating Alabama and LSU at home, but now they have to travel to Auburn (a week before returning home to host Georgia). The Tigers won't be too welcoming, given that last week they dropped their first game of the year, to Arkansas.
Cal at USC
The Golden Bears kicked off the year in embarrassing fashion, suffering a 35-18 shellacking at the hands of Tennessee. But since then Cal has looked fabulous in five straight blowout wins. While the Trojans are undefeated, they have looked far from dominant. Can Cal knock off USC and end the Trojans' four-year streak of Pac-10 titles?
West Virginia at Louisville
Many folks whine about the quality of play in the Big East, but these two teams have earned enough national respect to be ranked in the top 10 (West Virginia at No. 5 and Louisville at No. 7). Louisville QB Brian Brohm, who began the year as a bona fide Heisman candidate, is expected to return from injury within the next two weeks and should be ready for this showdown against the Mountaineers' dynamic duo of QB Pat White and RB Steve Slaton.
Michigan at Ohio State
It's been 33 years since archrivals Michigan and Ohio State faced off undefeated and untied, but halfway through this season both teams boast a 6-0 record. Ohio State faces a fairly simple schedule leading up to The Game, but Michigan must play at Penn State and host Iowa in the next two weeks (and it may not have injured superstar Mario Manningham for either game). If both teams make it through unscathed, this has the potential to be the game of the millennium.
