[5] Tennessee at [6] Florida

8 p.m., WUSA-9, WJZ-13

The Vols are after their third straight victory in the Swamp but enter today as clear underdogs largely because of their unsettled quarterback situation. Erik Ainge did not play well in the season opener against Alabama-Birmingham, prompting Coach Phillip Fulmer to turn to Rick Clausen, who will start tonight's contest. Ainge should also see action against a Florida defense that expects to be more physical and better conditioned than last season. Florida coaches say the spread-option offense installed by Urban Meyer's staff still has a ways to go before it's fully charged. But talent is not an issue at skill positions. Neither is confidence among Gators players.

[8] Florida State at [17] BC

7:45 p.m., ESPN

Amid the emotion of Boston College's inaugural ACC game, keep your eyes on Bobby Bowden's quarterback, Drew Weatherford, who looked bad against Miami and decent against The Citadel. He threw for 342 yards last week, marking the first time in 18 games that an FSU quarterback threw for more than 300. Don't expect a repeat performance in Chestnut Hill, Mass., but that does not mean the Seminoles can't win with their defense and running game.

[13] Miami at [20] Clemson

3:30 p.m., WJLA-7, WMAR-2

As scary as it sounds, this game could feature the two best quarterbacks in the ACC in Miami's Kyle Wright and Clemson's Charlie Whitehurst, who has rebounded quite well from a disastrous 2004 campaign. Should Miami win, the Hurricanes likely will enter the Nov. 5 game at Virginia Tech with one loss. Clemson needs this one if it wants to go to a bowl game, considering the rest of the Tigers' schedule includes games at North Carolina State, Georgia Tech and South Carolina.

[23] Fresno State at Oregon

7 p.m., TBS

Oregon essentially has nothing to watch to prepare for the Bulldogs, who used a limited offensive package while toying with Division I-AA Weber State last week. The Bulldogs also have an advantage because the Ducks might be looking ahead to next week's home game against Southern California. The MVP thus far for Oregon has been place kicker Paul Martinez, who has made 11 field goals. Nine times Oregon drove inside the Montana 30-yard line, but they only scored two touchdowns. Fresno State likely will be without defensive end Garrett McIntyre, the Western Athletic Conference preseason defensive player of the year, who has a high ankle sprain.

[21] Oklahoma at UCLA

3:30 p.m., pay-per-view

Get this: Oklahoma might be the third-best team playing in Los Angeles today, behind UCLA and Southern California. Bruins senior quarterback Drew Olson has completed 28 of 40 passes. And the linebackers, specifically Spencer Havner, should repeatedly harass the Sooners quarterback, either Rhett Bomar or Paul Thompson. Bomar threw two interceptions in the first half last week against Tulsa, prompting Oklahoma to rely on Adrian Peterson's running ability in the second half. Coach Bob Stoops has debated the playing status of Peterson, who missed classes, but the Heisman Trophy runner-up is expected to play.
