Another pretty good weekend on tap, mixed in with the World Series, should give sports fan plenty to see. Perhaps the top game involves No. 2 Oklahoma hosting the eleventh-ranked Cyclones of Iowa State: whether the Sooners can stop a real quarterback will be put to the test on Saturday (btw, I think the one thing we can predict with absolute certainty is that no matter how great a season Seneca Wallace has this year, Chris Simms will be drafted ahead of him). The only match-up of undefeated teams occurs in Colorado Springs, where Air Force takes on Notre Dame. There are a lot of "ifs" involved, but I can see the Falcons defying the C.W. and getting picked for a BCS bowl, even the Fiesta Bowl, if they win Saturday and remain undefeated the rest of the way. USC and Washington play in what is an elimination game for the Rose Bowl, whilst once-mighty Florida and Auburn get together in an elimination game for the Poulan WeedEater Bowl. And, natch, its Homecoming Week at Berkeley, where CAL seeks to overcome the prison gang rape it received last week from the officials and beat its hated rival to the south, UCLA, at the same time their counterparts face-off in the World Series.
