(7-1) ByBILLVILONA News-Press sports bureau TALLAHASSEE His performance this season has earned quarterback Thad Busby the praise and respect of his Florida State teammates and coaches. Now, Busby is starting to get national attention. His name has popped up with "others to watch" on Heisman Trophy contender lists. At least one recognized college football analyst believes he should be invited to the ceremony. "Thad Busby has been sensational," said ESPN's Lee Corso, who was in Tallahassee on Monday to Interview Busby and other Florida State players for Saturday's game against North Carolina to be televised by ESPN. "There is no reason in my opinion, why he shouldn't come to the Heisman Trophy dinner (as one of the five invitees). Peyton Manning has won the Heisman, but Thad should be invited. "The thing I really have liked about him is that every time the other team has driven for a touchdown and made the game closer, he's answered back with a drive." Busby, fighting a chest cold Monday, said his confidence has grown each week. He leads the Atlantic Coast Conference in total offense and passing efficiency, throwing for 2,549 yards and 20 touchdowns. "I'm a lot more confident than I was at this time last year," said Busby, who threw for a career-high 463 yards and five touchdowns in last Saturday's win over North Carolina State. "This year, I haven't second-guessed anything. "I've gotten better as the season has progressed. That's all I've hoped to do." Busby has accepted an Invitation SEMINOLES NOTES to play in the Senior Bowl on Jan. 18 in Mobile, Ala. He is one of four quarterbacks, valued highly by NFL personnel, who will be in the game. The Seminoles are six-point favorites in Saturday's game. That's the only time they have been single-digit favorites in any ACC game since joining in 1992. This is the first time two ACC teams ranked in the Top 5 have ever met. The previous highest-ranking game for the league was on Nov. 7 1981, when No. 2 Clemson played at No. 8 North Carolina. Clemson won 10-8 en route to winning the national championship that season. Florida State admits its defense was playing basic formations and showing little adjustments during Saturday's second-half comeback by North Carolina State. "We weren't giving any secrets away, let's put It that way," said defensive end Andre Wadsworth. "We'll be a different team on Saturday." North Carolina is 0-28-1 against teams ranked in the Top 5. The Tar Heels have lost 28 straight to Top 5 teams since 1939. Florida State has recruited the state of North Carolina In recent . years, but with little success. The last player from North Carolina on the Seminoles' team was Tim Johnson, an offensive lineman In 1994-95 and junior college transfer. Before him, the Seminoles had their most famous Johnson Brad Johnson whom they signed from Black Mountain, N.C. in 1987. 47.tN.llllnol, 1 MISSOURI (6-3) 23 Ohio U. 20 44 E.Mich. 24 58Bowl.Grn 0 7atKansas 15 26 at Nebraska 56 42atTulsa 21 41 Missouri 11 lOOhloSt. 31 36 Texas A&M 17 45 Iowa St. 21 26atOklahoma 7 llatKansasSt. 41 13 at Texas Tech 2 37 Texas 29 Nov.8Kansas,2 51atOkla.St.,20T 50 Nov. 15 Colorado, 2 41 at Colorado 31 Nov. 22at Iowa St., 1:30 Nov. 8 Nebraska, 2 KENT (3-6) Nov. 15 Baylor, 2 28 at Virginia 17 19 Mississippi 9 31atLSU 28 41Cent.Fla. 14 23etS.

"We had control in our hands, and we've lost two games now. So, it's pretty much out of our hands." What a turnaround. Only four weeks ago, the Gators were ranked No. 1 and appeared headed for a rematch against Nebraska in the Orange Bowl. Now, not even Saturday's game against last-place Vanderbilt looks like a sure thing. "We're not as great as we think we are," Spurrier said. Now, Spurrier wonders whether the Fun 'N' Gun offense ever again will operate the way he designed it. "I keep thinking we're going to throw the ball around, but it's not happening," Spurrier said. Florida averaged nearly 504 yards per game last year on its way to the national championship. Take away the 708 yards in an 82-6 win over outmanned Central Michigan, and the Gators are averaging only 385 yards per game this year. Even though Spurrier suspended quarterback Doug Johnson for the Auburn game for missing curfew and benched him at halftime against Georgia for throwing two interceptions, he'll probably stick with him the rest of the season. He has rarely faulted the 19-year-old sophomore after reviewing tapes, and this week was no different. "Doug Johnson did not play all that poorly," Spurriersaid. Instead, he noticed screen plays get botched and touchdown passes get dropped passes go through the hands of Jacquez Green and Jamie Richardson in the end zone. "We've been fortunate In past years that most of those good things happened for the Gators," Spurrier said. "We're going through a stretch where a lot of bad things that can happen keep happening to us." Nov. 27 Texas, 11 a.m. 34 Temple 14 TEXASCHRISTIAN(04) lOatMlch.St. 42 21atN.

They won their first SEC title in 1991 and have played in every SEC championship game since the league split into two divisions in 1992, winning the last four. Spurrier still even counts his first year as a title Florida finished first in the SEC in 1990, but was ineligible for the crown because of NCAA probation. Florida had been ranked in the top 10 for 81 consecutive polls the longest streak in the nation until it slipped to No. 13 following Saturday's 37-17 loss to Georgia. "It looks like it's going to be the first non-championship year in the eight years we've been here," Spurrier said. "That was a big, disappointing loss..." For Florida to have a chance at a record-tying fifth straight SEC title, Tennessee would have to lose at Kentucky or at home against Vanderbilt, and Georgia would have to lose both its remaining SEC games, against Auburn and at Ole Miss. 12 Air Force 4) MatTulane 24 40at Nrthwstrn 34 31 Texas 38 42at Tulsa 24 27BYU 14 35at NewMex. 23 6atSMU 24 Nov.8TCU,3 Nov. 15 at Utah, 3 Nov.22Tx-EIPaso,3 RUTGERS (0-9) 19 Va.
