Central Michigan at No. 2 Georgia, 3:30 p.m., pay-per-view; Mississippi at No. 20 Wake Forest, 3:30 p.m., ESPN2; No. 17 South Florida at Central Florida, 7 p.m., ESPN2; Stanford at No. 15 Arizona State, 10 p.m.

Last season, Central Michigan quarterback Dan LeFevour became the second player in division I-A history to throw for more than 3,000 yards (3,652 to be exact) and rush for more than 1,000 yards (1,122). Watch him match up against Georgia's defense.

Meantime, the ACC will be without much semblance of respectability should Wake Forest falter, as many of its fellow league teams did last week. The Demon Deacons face Mississippi, a bottom-feeding SEC squad, but an SEC squad nonetheless.

The South Florida offense might not pile up 520 total yards as it did last week, but it should carry the Bulls past Central Florida. Later on, Stanford will try to capture a surprising victory for a second week in a row.
