Central Florida is 0-3.

*

Arizona cornerback Michael Jolivette, who has led the Wildcats in interceptions the last two seasons, will miss today's game at No. 22 Wisconsin and could be sidelined for the rest of the season after suffering a knee injury in practice. Starting safety Clay Hardt and defensive end Vince Feula traveled to Madison, Wis., but each have badly sprained ankles and are questionable for the game.... Georgia Tech defensive end Greg Gathers, the school's career leader in sacks, has a kidney ailment that will keep him out of today's game against Brigham Young and could force him to miss the rest of the season.
