SPOTLIGHT GAMES

NO. 5 GEORGIA (5-0) AT NO. 6 SOUTH CAROLINA (5-0)

7 P.M

. * COLUMBIA, S.C.

* TV: ESPN

Why watch: Georgia coach Mark Richt summed up not only this game but the head-to-head impact of this entire day in the top 25: "The rest of the season hasn't been a whole lot of drama. But I'm sure there will be drama this week." This is one of five games today in which teams within the top 25 meet. Expect Georgia's Todd Gurley to have a hand in writing the script. Just a freshman, Gurley leads the SEC in rushing (536 yards, 9 TDs). South Carolina, meanwhile, looks for its first 6-0 start since 1988 and boasts its own marquee back in Marcus Lattimore (440 yards, 4.8 ypc). It's a key game in the SEC East, with the winner remaining on track for the division title, but it's hardly a season-maker with Georgia still to play Florida and South Carolina still to play Florida and LSU.

Why watch: Associated Press poll voters have given LSU coach Les Miles his pregame speech if he wants it: Disrespect. Despite winning the past two weeks, voters dropped the Tigers to No. 3 last week and No. 4 this week. Of course, it isn't entirely undeserved. The Tigers barely beat Auburn, 12-10, then allowed season highs of 22 points and 188 rushing yards to Division I-AA Towson a week ago. Florida QB Jeff Driskell and a talented offensive line must exploit those defensive vulnerabilities if the Gators hope to reverse recent history: LSU has won five of the past eight meetings, including the past two.

WEEK SIX NOTES

In a game that conjures memories of the 1980s, undefeated Notre Dame (4-0) faces one-loss Miami (4-1) at Soldier Field in Chicago (7:30 p.m., WPXI). Miami enters having scored at least 38 points in each of its four wins. The Irish, led by Manti Te'o, have allowed just 36 points all season -- its fewest in its first four games since 1975. ... Notre Dame is the only team in Division I-A that has yet to trail this season. …
