Rivalry Weekend Afternoon Thread

Florida St. at Florida, 3:30 PM EST/12:30 PM PST, CBS: Can Bobby Bowden pull off the ultimate upset in Gainesville and stick it to his haters? My guess is 'NO'.

Arizona at Arizona St., 3:30 PM EST/12:30 PM PST, ABC on the West Coast, ESPN360.com elsewhere: Look out people; the Wildcats are in danger of losing their last two games. They're short favorites to win this week and will be underdogs next week in LA. What was once a rosy scenario could end up as 7-5.

Missouri at Kansas, 3:30 PM EST/12:30 PM PST, ABC in Big 12 Areas: The Border War might be the nastiest of all the college football rivalries--there is true pre-Civil War emnity brewing on both sides. This could also be your last chance to see Mark Mangino wobble along the sidelines.

Virginia Tech at Virginia, 3:30 PM EST/12:30 PM PST, ESPN to most of the country, ABC elsewhere: THIS is the game that gets national coverage? Nice deal ABC.

Miami at South Florida, 3:30 PM EST/12:30 PM PST, ESPN360.com, or ABC in the lower South/Northeast: This isn't a rivalry. Not sure what this is.

Boston College at Maryland, 3:30 PM EST/12:30 PM PST, ESPNU: The Terps try to avoid 2-10.  Is it possible the Bears beat the two worst teams in the six major conferences? That season opener sure provided us false hope.
