FBC--T25-THE BRAWL AT 100
PITTSBURGH - The Pitt-West Virginia rivalry known as the Backyard Brawl turns 100 this week, and it's difficult to find a dull, meaningless or routine game in the bunch. After all, this is a series where fans once tried to beat down a locker room door to get at losing coach Bobby Bowden. Where a walk-on was the star one year and a Heisman Trophy winner was the next. And where the highest-scoring game in college football at the time wasn't the wackiest game in the series. By Alan Robinson.

FBC--UCF-SMITH.
ORLANDO, Fla. - It is rare when the nation's leading rusher can leave practice before the conference championship without facing a swarm of reporters. Maybe Kevin Smith is a rare guy. He has run for 2,164 yards this season, fourth-best in NCAA history, and still has two games to play. By the end, he'll probably have football's second best season ever, after Barry Sanders' 2,628 yards in 1989.
FBC--T25-LSU-BYRD
BATON ROUGE, La. - No one knew what to expect from LSU receiver Demetrius Byrd when the junior college transfer arrived the day before summer practice began. Now the Tigers wonder whether they would have pulled out some of their biggest wins of the season without him. By Brett Martel.

NORMAN, Okla. - Malcolm Kelly came to Oklahoma expecting to play for national championships. Seeing the Sooners reduced to messing up another team's chances wasn't what he envisioned. Two weeks after Oklahoma's national title hopes faded away on the West Texas plains, the No. 9 Sooners find themselves with only one stake in deciding the BCS title: spoiling top-ranked Missouri's shot at its first national championship.
