THURSDAY’S BEST BET ON TELEVISION

Quarterback Jevan Snead and No. 4 Mississippi visit South Carolina in an SEC clash. 7:30 p.m., ESPN

LOCAL POWER RANKINGS ” WHO’S GENERATING BUZZ IN THE D.C. AREA?

JIM ZORN

The heat is on the Redskins coach after no TDs in win against St. Louis. It will be on full blast if they don’t fare better at Detroit.

MIKE RIZZO

With the Nationals barreling toward another 100-loss season, the GM’s next big decision is finding a manager who can lead the team out of the abyss.

WILL MONTGOMERY

Although Chad Rinehart may be the choice at right guard, the Redskins should consider giving Montgomery first crack - he was serviceable last week.

RALPH FRIEDGEN

He said Maryland has played “three tough games against three good teams.” That doesn’t excuse barely beating James Madison and losing again to Middle Tennessee.

ANDREW GORDON

Right wing is only Capitals player to appear in all four preseason games and could wedge himself into the opening night lineup next week in Boston.

TWT FIVE ” TOP CURRENT FOOTBALL FEUDS

1. Lane Kiffin vs. Urban Meyer - The coaches at Tennessee and Florida continue to joust. This one will last for years and will be hilarious.

2. Rex Ryan vs. San Francisco 49ers - After the 49ers accused the Jets of tampering with unsigned Michael Crabtree, Ryan said he wished the teams played this week.

3. Sir Alex Ferguson vs. Arsene Wenger - Different kind of football, but it’s a classic feud nonetheless between the managers at Manchester United and Arsenal.

4. Al Groh vs. Virginia fans - The Cavaliers are 0-3 and can’t stop anybody. It’s not going to end well for Groh.

5. Jim Zorn vs. Sonny Jurgensen - Just kidding. Their postgame exchanges have gotten far too much attention.
