Games to Watch:

#23 South Florida @ Cincinatti (10/30, 6:30, ESPN) - This is a must win for Cincinnati if they want to keep their chance at a Big East Championship alive.
Wisconsin @ #21 Michigan State (11/1, 11:00) - Wisconsin is out of the Big Ten Title Hunt and they can't take Michigan State out with upset in Lansing.
West Virginia @ #25 U Conn (11/1, 11:00) - West Virginia revived their season with a win over a hapless Auburn.  Although not ranked, they are in the driver's seat to win the Big East.
#18 Tulsa @ Arkansas (11/1, 1:00) - This may be Tulsa's toughest game of the season, which is why they won't make the BCS cut.
#24 Oregon @ Cal (11/1, 2:30, ABC) - This battle between 1-loss (in conference) Pac10 teams will determine who's ready to spring to the top if USC stumbles....again....
#8 Florida vs #6 Georgia (11/1, 2:30, CBS) - The first marquee match-up this Saturday.  This game will decide who wins the SEC East and possibly faces Bama in Atlanta on Dec 6th.
#1 Texas @ #7 Texas Tech (11/1, 7:00, ABC) - The second marquee match-up this Saturday.  Texas has played great football the past several weeks, but that intensity is hard to maintain.  Texas Tech hopes to treat the home crowd to an upset special.
