Stewart Mandel's Three-Point Stance

1 Tim Tebow may not win the Heisman again this year, but the Florida quarterback is finally playing like his old self. Tebow completed 10 of 13 passes, ran for three touchdowns and threw for two more in a 49--10 thrashing of Georgia.

2 Everyone expected the Michigan offense to struggle in Rich Rodriguez's first year, but what's up with a defense that had eight returning starters? The Wolverines (2--7) allowed 522 yards in a 48--42 loss to 2--6 Purdue.

3 Good luck figuring out who will win the ACC. Eight teams have one or two conference losses, with Maryland (6--2, 3--1 in the Atlantic) and Georgia Tech (7--2, 4--2 in the Coastal) leading their respective divisions by a half game.
