Notre Dame fired Charlie Weis, Florida State pushed Bobby Bowden down retirement's elevator shaft, a Florida defender needs a public defender after being charged with an SUI (snoozing under the influence) and Tiger Woods ran into a tree and then a lot more. We're not sure how this weekend could be more exciting than this week's beginning, but here's the setup: College football's last regular-season stand begins tonight in Oregon, where the schools that played to a 0-0 tie in a 1983 game dubbed "the toilet bowl" are 26 years later meeting in the second biggest Civil War contested.

1 Same story, different year. Florida and Alabama play in Saturday's Southeastern Conference title game, with the winner advancing to the national title game and the loser going to the Sugar Bowl. Florida won last year's epic in Atlanta and then beat Oklahoma to win the national championship. 2 Table-turning time? In 1996, Texas knocked Nebraska out of the national title game with a shocking upset victory in the Big 12 championship game. This year, the shock will be if Nebraska knocks Texas out of the title game.
