September 21, 2002|Robyn Norwood

*--* **** Whoa, Nellie *** Order some pizza ** Channel-surf ... or get out of the house * A fine time for chores ** Utah (2-1) at No. 14 Michigan (2-1), 9 a.m., ESPN: Here's hoping the players of the game aren't the officials this week. LINE: Michigan by 10 ** Arizona (2-0) at No. 22 Wisconsin (4-0), 9 a.m., ESPN2: Badgers one of least impressive unbeaten teams in the country. LINE: Wisconsin by 4 1/2 ** North Carolina State (4-0) at Texas Tech (2-1), 9:30 a.m., Fox Sports Net: N.C. State quarterback Philip Rivers--a 6-foot-5, 236-pound married father of one--is leading the nation in passing efficiency. LINE: Texas Tech by 1 1/2 **** No. 10 Florida (2-1) at No. 4 Tennessee (2-0), 12:30 p.m., Channel 2: Gators might find "Rocky Top" a rocky road. LINE: Tennessee by 4 *** Colorado (1-2) at No. 20 UCLA (2-0), 12:30 p.m., Channel 7, KXTA (1150): Buffaloes, once ranked in the top 10, make their bid for bust of the year. LINE: UCLA by 12 ** No. 6 Ohio State (3-0) at Cincinnati (1-1), 12:30 p.m., ESPN: Maurice Clarett probably could gain 100 yards against the Bearcats on one leg--but there's no reason to try. LINE: Ohio State by 17 ** Fresno State (1-2) at Oregon State (3-0), 3:30 p.m., Fox Sports Net: The Beavers' freefall started in Fresno last season, when David Carr and Co. swatted away their national title hopes in the opener. LINE: Oregon State by 11 1/2 ** Southern Mississippi (3-0) at Alabama (2-1), 4 p.m., ESPN2: Underdog Southern Mississippi already has beaten Illinois--and defeated Alabama two years ago, 21-0. LINE: Alabama by 7 *** No. 11 USC (2-0) at No. 25 Kansas State (3-0), 4 p.m., TBS, KMPC (1540), XPRS (1090, Spanish): K-State shakes its reputation for scheduling nonconference patsies. LINE: Kansas State by 2 1/2 ** Boston College (2-0) at No. 1 Miami (3-0), 4:45 p.m., ESPN: It's always worth clicking over to check on No. 1--and where B.C.-Miami is concerned, strange things have happened. LINE: Miami by 26 * Wyoming (0-3) at No. 13 Washington (1-1), 7 p.m., Fox Sports Net: Other than a glimpse of the lovely Husky Stadium view of Lake Washington, there's no reason to watch Wyoming extend its losing streak. LINE: Washington by 30 1/2 * Hawaii (1-1) at Texas El Paso (1-2), delayed at 1:30 a.m., Fox Sports Net 2: Not even insomniacs should watch a UTEP team that lost to Kentucky, 77-17, and Oklahoma, 68-0. LINE: Hawaii by 19 1/2
