Five things to watch this week in college football:
1. Penn State Coach Joe Paterno easily notched career victory No. 395 with Saturday's 44-14 home victory over Youngstown State, but getting No. 396 this weekend is going to be a Bear because the Nittany Lions travel to Tuscaloosa to challenge No. 1 Alabama. Paterno was 0-4 against former Crimson Tide coach Bear Bryant and says this Alabama team compares favorably to the great squads of yesteryear.
2. No. 13 Miami visits No. 2 Ohio State in rematch of the 2002 season's BCS championship game in the Fiesta Bowl. The underdog Buckeyes shocked the Hurricanes in double overtime in what became an instant classic. Miami hasn't been the same since while Ohio State has returned to two BCS title games — losing both.
3. Florida State at Oklahoma is a rematch of the 2000 season's BCS championship game, in which the Sooners dethroned the defending national champions, 13-2, in the Orange Bowl. Things have changed, with Oklahoma's Bob Stoops now playing the role of venerable coach against rookie Jimbo Fisher, who took over for Bobby Bowden.
