For Harris and Ponder, the time is now 

September, 7, 2010

Week 1 was riveting -- Denard Robinson, Patrick Peterson, Jacksonville State and more -- but the second full Saturday of college football in 2010 could be absolutely amazing. Here are six things you should be looking toward:

1. Step up Saturday:
It's too early in the season to call this "Showdown Saturday," but it's still a momentous weekend. Two of Florida's Big Three -- the Miami Hurricanes and the Florida State Seminoles -- have been in a tailspin for a few years (Miami did open last season strong, but then the wheels fell off a bit).

Those funks might be over; both teams have loaded up on athletic playmakers as they remold their images behind new head coaches.

Is it time for the national college football world to take notice?
