CFB: (17) Arizona St. at (14) UCLA
Virtually unnoticed all season, the Arizona State Sun Devils could make a major statement on Saturday: By beating the UCLA Bruins in Pasadena, Calif., Todd Graham's crew would earn a trip to the Pac-12 title game.

CFB: (3) Oregon vs. (12) UCLA
Oregon isn't too happy about sitting at No. 3 behind Florida State in the first BCS standings of the season. But many of the experts say that if the Ducks take care of business the rest of the way, they will surpass the Seminoles when it matters most: at the end of the season. The first test is a UCLA team that was riding high until hitting a hot Stanford Cardinal team last week. Can the Bruins rebound to derail Oregon's championship hopes? Can the Ducks dominate and perhaps end Florida State's placement at No. 2 after just one week?

Oh, but the Bruins will be tested quite a bit this month; their next game is at the No. 2 Oregon Ducks.
