Break out the chips and cold drinks but let Chris Dufresne handle the remote. Each Thursday, The Times' national college football writer handicaps what's worth watching, and skipping, on Saturday's menu of games: Morning No. 5 Stanford (1-0) at Army (1-1) 9 a.m., CBS Sports Network Army loves to run the ball and Stanford's defense lives to stop the run, so that probably means Army will be lucky to cross mid-field. Don't be fooled by a final score that might look close.

Paris McCurdy had talked a good game all afternoon, but he did not play one until the very end, which was when he had the final word. Inspired by Gary Payton's reputation for on-court conversation, McCurdy set out to outdo him Thursday, although Payton on this day wasn't particularly willing to tangle.

Rick Majerus, the college basketball coach who led Utah to the 1998 NCAA final and had only one losing season in 25 years with four schools, died Saturday. He was 64. Utah industrialist Jon Huntsman Sr., the coach's longtime friend, confirmed in a statement released through the Salt Lake Tribune that Majerus died of heart failure in a Los Angeles hospital. Majerus said Nov. 19 that he wouldn't return to Saint Louis University because of the heart condition. He ended the school's 12-year NCAA tournament drought last season with a 26-win team that won its opening game and took top regional seed Michigan State to the wire.

And then there were two. The shocking 54-21 victory over Louisiana Lafayette by wacky Western Kentucky (1-6) left just two winless teams: Akron (0-8) and New Mexico (0-7). That number could fall this weekend because the Lost Lobos of New Mexico get to play Colorado State (2-6), which is coming off a 6-59 loss at the hands, elbows, knees and feet of Utah. The game wasn't as close as the score indicated. Akron shouldn't have any trouble losing to Temple (6-2) Saturday, but will need clutch breakdowns later in the year if it intends to lose to Ball State (2-6)
