UCF at FIU, 6 p.m.
The Knights (2-0) have 27 players who graduated from Miami and Fort Lauderdale high schools, 15 of whom were teammates with players on the Florida International roster. The Panthers (2-0) beat Louisville last week, their first win over a school in an automatic-qualifier BCS conference.
Miami vs. No. 17 Ohio St., 7:30 p.m., ESPN, 1470-AM
Both teams want to get a temporary respite from ongoing fallout from their respective NCAA scandals. Miami (0-1) has not lost five consecutive games since an eight-game slide in the 1977-78 seasons, and the Hurricanes are desperate to give new coach Al Golden his first victory. For Ohio State (2-0), which struggled at home to beat Toledo last weekend, a loss could mean the Buckeyes tumble out of the Associated Press Top 25 for the first time since 2004. Hurricanes QB Jacory Harris, LB Sean Spence, WR Travis Benjamin, DE Adewale Ojomo and DT Marcus Forston return from one-game suspensions.
