ORLANDO, Fla. - The late-afternoon sun was setting behind the football practice field at the University of Central Florida one afternoon last week, a slight breeze cooling off the players and their coach, George O'Leary. If you're going to endure an 0-8 start that has stretched the team's losing streak to 12 games, this is not a bad place to be. In O'Leary's case, there weren't many other options. Had he not been caught in a decades-old lie about his playing background and educational credentials dating back to his undergraduate days at the University of New Hampshire, O'Leary would be in his third season at Notre Dame.

West Virginia (7-4) vs. Georgia Tech (6-5)Time: 7: 30 p.m. todayTV: TBSLine: Georgia Tech by 3Series: Georgia Tech leads 1-0Last meeting: Georgia Tech won, 42-19, in 1954 Sugar BowlCoaches: Don Nehlen (130-76-4); George O'Leary (17-19)Outlook: West Virginia depends on tailback Amos Zereoue, who is third in the nation in rushing at 150.5 yards a game, running behind a good line. An injured foot may keep Zereoue out of the game, though, meaning Curtis Keaton would start. Tech relies on shifty quarterback Joe Hamilton, who threw for more than 2,300 yards, and a superb linebacking duo of Keith Brooking and Ron Rogers.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. - George O'Leary, introduced as Notre Dame's head football coach amid much pomp and pageantry at a pep rally-news conference Sunday, resigned late Thursday night because of what he called "a selfish and thoughtless act many years ago." The former Georgia Tech coach who had just signed a six-year contract admitted yesterday that he had falsified his academic and athletic credentials for decades. O'Leary, 55, claimed to have a master's degree in education and to have played college football for three years, but background checks showed those statements were not true.

Several schools have enjoyed unexpected success similar to Maryland's in 2001. Here's what has happened to those programs since. 2000: Oregon State (11-1) With the return of star tailback Ken Simonton, the Beavers were picked to be No. 1 by Sports Illustrated in 2001. However, Oregon State suffered a season-opening road loss to Fresno State and dropped four of its first six games on the way to a 5-6 finish. This year's team is expected to rebound, with 15 starters returning. 1995: Northwestern (10-2)
