Player of the Week:  Colt McCoy - Pure heart may not always win games but it will always help win the close ones.

Games to watch:
#2 North Alabama @ #10 Delta State (10/16, 7:00, CSS) - The defending Gulf South Conference champs Delta State (5-1, 4-0) host the only other GSC team that is undefeated in conference play, North Alabama (7-0, 5-0), in a Division II top 10 battle.  No one has been able to stop North Alabama's juggernaut of an offense this season and the Lions are looking to avenge their post-season loss to the Statesmen that ended their 2007 season.
#9 BYU @ TCU
(10/16, 7:00) - BYU is looking to keep their BCS hopes alive but have come up against a quietly succeeding TCU team whose only loss came against a solid Oklahoma squad.  This may prove to be BYU's last major hurdle before meeting Utah in their final regular season game.
Florida State @ North Carolina State (10/16, 6:30, ESPN) - Although neither team is ranked, Florida State still has ACC Championship hopes.  The Wolfpack has seen their dream season crumble over the past few weeks, but a win over Bowden's squad would be quite a boost.
#21 Wake Forest @ Maryland (10/18, 11:00) - Wake Forest looks to climb another rung on the ladder to the ACC Championship game and Maryland is looking to prove they are still on that same road.  The Terps dashed Clemson's hopes, will they do the same to Wake?
#12 Ohio State @ #20 Michigan State (10/18, 2:30, ABC) - Ohio State wants to prove they still rule the Big Ten while Michigan State wants to do what the other team from Ann Arbor hasn't been able to the past few years.
#17 Virginia Tech @ Boston College (10/18, 7:00) - This is the beginning of a conference play gauntlet for Virginia Tech while BC is looking to stay alive.
#11 Missouri @ #1 Texas (10/18, 7:00, ABC) - In the ever changing rankings landscape, this game still looms monumental.  Texas staked their claim to the Big XII title win a win over South division rival Oklahoma while Missouri fell to Oklahoma State, also from the South.  A win by Missouri would prove the North can contend, but Chase will need much better protection than he was afforded last Saturday.
