From rushing records to remarkable TD-INT ratios, here are some numbers to look forward to this weekend: 1. This is the first time since 1973 that the college football season has reached Nov. 20 with as many as six teams still having a perfect record. In that year, however, four of the six teams met each other that very week, and three lost perfection when Ohio State and Michigan tied each other and LSU lost to Alabama. Don't expect any such shake-up this week. Of the six unbeaten teams, Cincinnati has a bye week, and the other five are all favored by more than three touchdowns. 2. With Florida hosting 3-7 Florida International, it's worth noting that the No. 1 team in the AP poll hasn't lost a November home game to a team with a losing record since 1961.
