September 14, 2002|Robyn Norwood

*--* **** Whoa, Nellie *** Order some pizza ** Channel-surf ... or get out of the house * A fine time for chores ** Georgia Tech (2-0) at Clemson (1-1), ESPN, 9 a.m.: Fantastic-finish alert: Clemson won last year in overtime, 47-44, and the last six meetings have all been three-point games. LINE: Pick ** California (2-0) at No. 15 Michigan State (2-0), ESPN2, 9 a.m.: Charles Rogers and Co. put an end to Cal's feel-good era and undefeated start. LINE: Michigan State by 13 1/2 * Tulsa (0-2) at Louisiana Tech (1-1), Fox Sports Net 2, 11 a.m.: Tulsa, coached by former USC assistant Keith Burns, has the nation's longest losing streak at 12. LINE: Louisiana Tech by 21 **** No. 7 Michigan (2-0) at No. 20 Notre Dame (2-0), Channel 4, 11:30 a.m.: Tune in and wait for history to happen: Maybe Notre Dame's offense will score a touchdown. LINE: Michigan by 4 ** No. 9 Georgia (1-0) at South Carolina (1-1), Channel 2, KSPN (1110), XTRA (690), 12:30 p.m.: Hmmm ... Hootie Johnson lives in Columbia, S.C., and newest Augusta National member Lou Holtz is suddenly defending club policy. LINE: Georgia by 5 1/2 *** No. 17 USC (1-0) at No. 18 Colorado (1-1), Channel 7, KMPC (1540), XPRS (1090), 12:30 p.m.: Injury to starter Craig Ochs means Trojans catch inexperienced quarterback. LINE: Colorado by 2 1/2 ** Iowa State (2-1) at Iowa (2-0), ESPN2, 3 p.m.: Take a look at Cyclone quarterback Seneca Wallace. LINE: Iowa by 3 1/2 *** No. 23 UCLA (1-0) at Oklahoma State (1-1), Fox Sports Net, KXTA (1150), 4 p.m.: All eyes should be on the matchup between Cowboy receiver Rashaun Woods and Bruin corner Ricky Manning. LINE: UCLA by 7 ** Nevada Las Vegas (1-1) at Oregon State (2-0), TBS, 4 p.m.: Ten years ago, could anyone fancy John Robinson and Dennis Erickson meeting like this? LINE: Oregon State by 16 ** No. 5 Florida State (2-0) at Maryland (1-1), ESPN, 4:45 p.m.: It has been proven time and again: Maryland has a speed deficit against the Florida powers. Blowout likely. LINE: Florida State by 14 1/2 *** No. 8 Nebraska (3-0) at Penn State (1-0), Channel 7, 5 p.m.: This is the battle of national champions past, but a Nittany Lion upset would be huge--and the line is less than a touchdown. LINE: Nebraska by 5 ** Louisville (1-1) at No. 24 Colorado State (2-1), ESPN2, 6:30 p.m.: Winner of this game separates the so-so from the not-so-good-after-all. LINE: Colorado State by 2 1/2
