Dropping some more science on you to get you ready for the weekend (credit goes to ESPN Stats & Info for many of these nuggets). Did you know that ...
  • Oklahoma will be making its first trip to Ohio since Sept. 24, 1977, when the then third-ranked Sooners edged No. 4 Ohio State 29-28 on a 41-yard FG by Uwe Von Schamann in the final seconds?
  • Cincinnati is 2-2 vs. members of the Big 12 since the inception of the conference (1996), beating Kansas twice and losing to Kansas State and Oklahoma?
  • Cincinnati is trying to avoid its first 1-3 start since 2006? That season, the Bearcats rebounded to finish 8-5.
  • LSU has won 30 straight non-conference, regular-season games, the longest active streak in the nation? The Tigers have also won 28 straight non-conference home games.
  • LSU is 24-1 against non-conference opponents under Les Miles? The only loss came against Penn State in the 2010 Capital One Bowl. LSU is also 25-1 in Saturday night home games under Les Miles. The only loss came to top-ranked Florida last season.
  • West Virginia is facing its first ranked non-conference opponent since playing third-ranked Virginia Tech in 2005? The Mountaineers are also playing on the road against a ranked non-conference opponent for the first time since 2002 (lost at Wisconsin).
  • Connecticut has outscored its opponents in each of the first three quarters but has been outscored 25-7 in the fourth quarter?
  • Buffalo -- UConn's opponent on Saturday -- is coached by Jeff Quinn, who was offensive coordinator for Cincinnati under Brian Kelly and was interim coach for the Sugar Bowl loss against Florida?
  • Syracuse leads Colgate 31-29-5 in the all-time series, but the Orange's last loss in the series came in 1950?
  • Since 2005, Rutgers has gone 8-2 after bye weeks, with four straight wins?
  • South Florida is 12-8 all time after bye weeks?
