**** Whoa, Nellie

*** Order some pizza

** Channel-surf ... or get out of the house

* A fine time for chores

** Wisconsin (6-3) at No. 9 Iowa (8-1), 9 a.m., ESPN: With no game against Ohio State, Iowa's road to the Rose Bowl might be a dead end. LINE: Iowa by 8.

** Michigan State (3-5) at No. 15 Michigan (6-2), 9 a.m., ESPN2: Discipline problems contributing to suspensions on a Spartan team that can't afford them. LINE: Michigan by 15.

*** Boston College (4-3) at No. 4 Notre Dame (8-0), 11:30 a.m., Channel 4; KSPN (1110): Monumental game if Boston College pulls one of its classic upsets, just another step if Notre Dame wins. LINE: Notre Dame by 9.

** No. 25 Tennessee (4-3) at South Carolina (5-3), 12:30 p.m., Channel 2: Tennessee receiver Kelley Washington will miss another game because of concussion. Seems like Volunteers are missing the whole season. LINE: Tennessee by 1 1/2.

** Illinois (3-5) at No. 20 Penn State (5-3), 12:30 p.m., ESPN: Nittany Lions lost to Ohio State last week, 13-7. Illini should be no problem. LINE: Penn State by 14.

** No. 18 Florida State (5-3) at Wake Forest (5-4), 1 p.m., ESPN2: Adrian McPherson takes over at quarterback after fans, teammates turn on Chris "Turnoversauras" Rix. LINE: Florida State by 10.

*** Pittsburgh (6-2) at No. 3 Virginia Tech (8-0), 4:30 p.m., ESPN2: Hokies cruising along toward Miami game. Good time to avoid any slip-up. LINE: Virginia Tech by 12 1/2.

*** No. 5 Georgia (8-0) vs. Florida (5-3) at Jacksonville, Fla., 4:45 p.m., ESPN: Gators could end this Georgia run here and now, especially with Bulldog receiver and punt returner Damien Gary out because of leg surgery. LINE: Georgia by 1.

* San Jose State (4-5) at Hawaii (6-2), 8 p.m., Fox Sports Net 2: Scoring will get boring before this one's done. LINE: Hawaii by 24 1/2.
